Christmas is coming

It's time to get organized and to start thinking about what we're going to give our friends and family for Christmas. How about nothing? That's the idea suggested at Buy Nothing Christmas (see links). Actually, they have a really interesting Website. If you're thinking that Christmas has become too commercial, that the corporate world is taking over your holidays, that the stress to find that perfect gift--and then pay for it--is becoming too much... then you've got to visit this Website! They suggest excellent alternative gifts to craft, create or recycle and they have fun, inexpensive ideas that really show people we care about them. That's what it's all about, eh?

We'll be buying gifts but we're also making something special (Top Secret). I have resolved not to panic this year. I will get everything in time. I will not wait till the last minute. I will remember which gift I got, or made, for whom. I will take time to enjoy my family. I will breathe.

Oh heck, it's only November. For goodness sakes! I've got plenty of time!
Do I sound like I'm panicking?

Any hint on the top secret gifts you are making? Just a little one? :)
