It's Coming!


Christmas, that is. Christmas is coming. Fast!  Now, I know you know this, as do I, but if you saw my  house, my life, the office, you’d know why it concerns me.  Every year I have this vision of being totally organized, everything in its place, decorations hung (before the holiday), cards and invites sent (weeks in advance), presents bought and wrapped (again, weeks in advance).  And every year I try, and I think for the most part, I do a pretty good job in being organized.  But pretty good is not the goal I want to reach.  I want darn good.  I want to be so organized that the pantry is stocked, cookies are baked and frozen as well as a few dinners, everything is in its place.  So today, right here, right now, we begin to prepare for Christmas. 
The first task is simple.  In anticipation of the Vietnam Veterans of America donation pick-up card that will be arriving in the mail any day now, I will be filling boxes and bags with items no longer used.  And I have plenty of those.  That’s it for now.  Just one simple task that will benefit me, my house, and lots of others.  Feels good.
