It was more of a reminder than anything this year, but when I saw her post about this, I got myself motivated to take the Christmas Challenge. Start a month out, and get all your things done in time so that you can actually enjoy the holiday season without all the rush.
I've managed to get 85% of my list done by today, and will be content if the rest doesn't get done as it's the "nice to do" not the "have to do".
The gifts are wrapped, and under the tree :) I have one left to do, but it can't be wrapped anyways. GW has nearly gotten his gifts all taken care of, so at this rate, neither of us will be waist deep in crazy shoppers come Dec 22nd.
