or has this year FLOWN?!!
The fact that it is almost mid-October just smacked me in the face today! I was "driving" home from work (more like sitting in traffic for about 5 minutes) thinking about how fast this week has gone - especially since on Monday I thought it was going to drag - and BAM! it hit me... Thanksgiving is a month away and Christmas right after that! (thanks to Sara for planting that seed in my head by posting her " We started our Christmas shopping" comment) UGH I am not ready for Christmas!
Lord, my mom WAS right when she said the years go faster as you get *ahem* older. We were thinking about spending Christmas in Italy this year - I guess we better start looking at airfare. And I have NO IDEA what to get as gifts. I don't love to shop (go ahead take a minute to deal with the shock.lol) so mostly at Christmas, I have a list of what I'm getting - go in - buy it - and get out! Usually this takes place a few weeks before Christmas, sooner, if I'm on the ball. I don't have much hope of being on the ball this year - I seem to be going through a disorganized phase right now when dealing with birthdays, holidays, etc. Your presents might be a little late but I do buy person-specific presents!
Stef will be so happy to know I'm starting to think about presents (I say this with a "tad" of sarcasm. HA) - he gets so bored (read that as kind of annoyed.hehe) cuz I'm always asking for suggestions for his family way early. (he is a Christmas Eve shopper - what are ya gonna do?) Also, I have no idea what is "trendy" right now and THE present to get.
Year - FLOWN BY
Christmas - FREAKING OUT
Presents - NO CLUE - SUGGESTIONS APPRECIATED
