I got off work at 7 a.m. I was supposed to finish some last-minute shopping by 10 or so and head home to Smallville. Well, it's 11:41 and I'm sitting at my computer in Franklin -- shopping missions still not underway. I do have a new Deadline Pressure entry written, so I'm not considering the morning a total loss.
There seems to be so much to do and so little time to do it in. I have to pick up a few items. I have to drive home. I have to assemble a gift for my mom. I'm supposed to watch A Muppet Christmas Carol with Jessie. I still have 50 lights out at my mom's house that should be fixed but probably won't be. My family and Jessie with do some gift exchanging. There will be dinner and church. I'll go out to Jessie's house and do some gift exchanging. I'm sure there will be a drive to see Christmas lights. And the sad thing is that this list doesn't include the tasks I've already deemed impossible to complete.
It's easy to get overwhelmed. But when I do, I think of the one of the most magical Christmas moments I've ever had... and one of the journal entries I'm most proud of...

Okay, so off I go. I hope that each of you has a very Merry Christmas.
