Some bad ideas to avoid next year during the week before Christmas:
Go to the mall (its been bad everyday but the 23rd was a nightmare)
Make your spouses bday cake.... Thank goodness I avoided that things get so busy the last minute.
Oh, then go to Target to get your spouses bday cake (just as bad, they don't have any birthday cakes, just Christmas ones)
Remember someone on your list you overlooked (i swear I went though my list of ppl but guess not)
Finding out you should get something for coworkers last second
Finding out my sister took one of my receipts to Michigan so I can't return something
Try to make personalized Christmas tags for every gift... Really stupid idea, it won't work
Parking ANYWHERE (such a joke, last year I got yelled at in the parking lot at the mall)
Try to attempt a last minute Christmas decor... It will not turn out the way you like in time for Christmas
Remember you need to get the little things for your traditions (ornaments, pjs)
Oh, and I totally forgot about stockings, but its ok, we did that the other day
To try to wrap Christmas presents w duct tape... Please don't ask, idk what came over me
Doing the 12 days of christmas to your spouse (which I really liked doing (but forgetting to do it haha)
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Hope you can laugh about the things that came up for us. We ate doing well and are excited to celebrate our second Christmas together. Happy Holidays!
