I usually have the cards all mailed out by the first weekend of December. On the same weekend, we buy and decorate the Christmas tree. By the second weekend, all the gifts have been bought, wrapped and placed under the Christmas tree. Those that need to be mailed are already on its way to the recipients.

Not this year. I feel unprepared for the holiday season. We bought the tree last weekend, kept watering it but it stayed undecorated until last night. Now it's all lit up and pretty. But I'm still not yet finished buying gifts, which means I'm still not yet done wrapping gifts. We still haven't signed the Christmas cards, even though they've already been addressed. I've already come to terms with the fact that those gifts that need to be mailed out will definitely be received after Christmas. Oh well.

I hope I'll finish it all without stressing out.
