there's more to life than books, you know

Between the business trip to Austin and the subsequent cold, I'm feeling frightfully behind in my holiday preparations. I have wrapping paper, but no presents to wrap. I have holiday cards mostly addressed, but no stamps.

And the holiday parties! Oh, the holiday parties. I think everyone I know is having a party this year (which would make the count of people I know...three). So far, there's been a dinner get together and a lovely cocktail party. There's another cocktail party this weekend (complete with a 1950's aluminum christmas tree). And it's entirely possible there some sort of holiday potluck thing at work this week.

So I'm not exactly sure when the whole shopping for gifts thing is going to actually happen. I know the amount of crazy holiday shoppers exponentially increases daily as we get closer to the 25th, which makes me want to avoid shopping even more. I just might resort to ordering those hopping lederhosen from Archie McPhee this year.

But despite any holiday stress, I'm happier than I've been in a long time. So even if I do break down and give the gift of wind-up toys this year, I'll be doing it with a big, goofy grin on my face.
