Christmas Is Almost Here

This morning when I went to Big W I saw lots of Christmas ornaments on display. It just suddenly hit me that Christmas is almost here again! And I panic a bit. Because I realized that I haven’t done or organised anything at all for this. I haven’t even thought about Christmas, hellowww….where am I??

I don’t know about you but in our family and also circle of friends we traditionally every year at Christmas time are sending and receiving gifts. From the oldest one until the youngest in the family I have to think what to buy or give…..every year….for both DH’s and my clans, our kids, and friends. From little pressies to greeting cards. Oh…not to mention, the neighbors too! I used to start as early as September to do my Christmas shopping. Budgeting, make a list whom to send the season greeting cards, what kind of stuff have to buy for this one and that one, and then go out shopping. That is supposed to be the fun part but also can give me headache. Young kids and men are always my biggest challenge. Hang on…. I can’t give him socks or t-shirt again, as I did last year!

This year October will be gone soon and I haven’t even made a list or let alone a budget for the Christmas shopping. My life lately seems so pack and full of things to do that I don’t have time or can’t manage to sit down and doing my list and budget. And I’m just a stay-at-home Mum…

We are all going back to Indonesia for Christmas this year. So, my shopping list will be more than last year definitely. This will be the first time since 2003 we are going to celebrate Christmas with my family in Jakarta. So I really don’t have long time enough to do every thing since we are leaving in the middle of December. I can’t believe time flies so fast. Another two months this year will end. A new year is coming. And I’m getting another year older….scary!

Anyhow….I better go to bed now. It’s very late and tomorrow is going to be hectic day with friend coming over, lunch out, kids gymnastic, and ohh….I almost forget, my husband is coming home tomorrow….yaayyy!
