As appealing as running off to the Netherlands sounds (Hi, Annemarie! Hi, Barbara!), I'm pretty sure it will just be the same stress, different day.
A lot of people talk about making the holidays simpler by making their gifts. Ha! But I'm happy to see that I am not alone. I'm glad there's a number of us who are a little bit crazy when it comes to estimating our time, and still wanting to give it.
I've decided to finish the stockings for next year. Look how far ahead I am on the 2009 Christmas gifts! Yay, me!
