I'm running on empty, and fast. Today is Wednesday. Tomorrow is early out for the high school and Friday is packed with a Pre-K Christmas Party, a Kindergarten Christmas Party, and a middle-school Christmas Party, and then school out by 1pm. Umm, okay. That's doable. NOT.

Straight from school on Friday afternoon, we're heading up to DFW with a stop by Cameron to pick up B. So that means I have to do the following between now and Friday morning:

Finish the freakin' tree. It's up, but not remotely decorated.
Finish wrapping presents.
Finish SHOPPING for the presents I've forgotten, which, btw, include three teacher gifts.
(Go to the crafters mall to look for teacher gifts)
Finish laundry for this weekend's trip.
Finish cleaning.
Pack for six.

And the WORST part is that this morning, I realized I won't get to sleep in until MONDAY! And only then because it'll be Christmas Break for the kids. I have sleep issues. I need my sleep. I crave my sleep. Right now, though, there's just no TIME to sleep. And right now, I'm seriously hating B's job that keeps him away 72 hours at a time. ~sigh~

I'd stay longer and whine more, but yanno, I got stuff to do and I'm quickly running out of time to get it done. This is the first year I've ever felt the "pressures" of Christmas, and I'm really starting to understand why adults never seemed to like the holidays when I was growing up.

If you think homemade cookies are on the list, ha! Slice and bake, baby!

Good luck with the time crunch and have a safe trip. Enjoy the holiday! I head out Saturday morning until the 30th. I plan to do lots of sleeping, reading and writing. Merry Christmas!
