Watson and the Holiday Cards

I’m trying. I really am, but I simply cannot find the Christmas spirit this year. Somehow I managed to get my cards out last week (with a little assistance from Watson) but other than that I’m completely behind. My shopping isn’t done. I haven’t purchased pretty wrapping paper. I’ve yet to bake a single cookie and my tree isn’t even decorated. My to-do list seems overwhelmingly out of control. I’m attempting to give myself permission to not care that all of these holiday chores aren’t done (because that’s exactly how they feel at this point) but it’s seriously weighing on my mind. So here’s my evil Christmas “to do” list in all its glory:

  • Decorate tree while stringing a million popcorn and cranberries
  • Decorate house in cat-friendly manner
  • Make cookies for work holiday party on Thursday
  • Finish annoying felt ornaments
  • Bake and prep for pre-Christmas with Family in Maine
  • Plan and shop for actual Christmas dinner with CK
  • Finish Christmas shopping
  • Find cute wrapping paper and matching accessories, then wrap all the still-to-be purchased gifts
  • Watch holiday movies
  • Figure out something holiday appropriate to cook and post on Erin Cooks

See what I mean? Even a viewing of Love Actually seems like a big pain in the ass at this point. It’s really going to be a very long month if I don’t snap out of this anti-holiday sentiment soon. I mean…come on…I’m the Christmas Queen usually?! What gives?
