There’s just too much. Too much baking. Too much decorating. Too much cleaning. Too much Christmas movies. Something had to give tonight. It was baking. And cleaning. And decorating. And… well, I couldn’t go completely cold turkey, so I did “watch” some movies. White Christmas and Miracle on 34th Street… two of my all time favorites. Followed by 2 sappy, predictable Hallmark Channel movies.
Instead I sat at the computer. I fixed the problem with the parish website, and I played my new and daily games. I fretted a little too. I have a medical issue that’ll come to a head in one way or another tomorrow, I’m just a little afraid of how it will come about. So today, I practiced avoidance. We’ll see how well it works out.
Tomorrow is Friday and the Bake Sale is the next day. I need to put the sandwich cookies together and I was thinking of making some fudge – although that I can make that on Saturday. There’s still some gingerbread dough in the fridge and I can whip up some more dough quickly if I get the urge to make something “else”. I think I’m ready. I wonder if I’ll get the urge… 😉
With the Bake Sale over, I can concentrate on decorating, inside and out. Right now, they’re predicting a ‘nice’ day on Monday (20% chance of rain) I hope to get my garland up and buy a tree. If I’m lucky, I can even get the tree ‘up’.
Santa will be at church for a pancake breakfast on Saturday. I love pancakes. I’m fond of Santa. I should go. I’ll probably be home baking. We’ll see.
What I really need is a day away from Christmas movies. It’s so much easier to get stuff done when you’re not tempted to sit down and enjoy a scene here or there. If I could force myself to just put the music on, I might be more successful.
Knowing and doing are two different things.
