Can you believe that Christmas is this weekend?
I feel like I’m ready but then I don’t. I mean the presents have been purchased and the ones that need to be mailed have been mailed but you know what happens is this. Every year I get everything done about a week to ten days before Christmas and then as luck would have it, bam, I gen inundated with thousands of emails from obviously well-meaning merchants who obviously have my best interest at heart.
“Dear Flower, there’s still time for those last minute gifts. Don’t worry if you didn’t get that special gift for that certain someone, we’ve got what you’re looking for and we can get it to you in time.”
And then I start freaking out and thinking that maybe I didn’t get enough presents. Maybe I didn’t buy the right things. Maybe I need to buy more. Maybe I need to exchange things. Maybe I need to find some more time to shop, what time does that sale end? When is the cut off for free shipping? Will it be delivered on time?
I need to just finish all my work by the week before Christmas and then shut down my email until the day after.
MacGyver and I were in Nokomis over the weekend and I ran a total of 16 miles on the Legacy Trail, the most important of which was my long run on Saturday, a total of 8 miles! It was lovely. Absolutely lovely. And in case you’re wondering, no migraines.
I hope all of my future long runs continue on like this…..
I’ll catch up more a bit later. In the meantime, I have to finish all my work and do a ton of last minute shopping I didn’t realize I needed to do!
Do those last minute shopping emails get you too?
