I must admit, I did a fairly large amount of my holiday shopping yesterday and the day before. I had every intention of getting all my gifts early this Christmas and spending lots of time being thoughtful. Instead, just like years past, the holiday totally snuck up on me amidst a frenetic work schedule.
It’s ironic because each and every year, I tell myself that I am not going to go through the stress of having my gift-getting come down to the wire (which is only compounded by the fact that my sister’s birthday is tomorrow, Christmas Eve, and requires another perfect present). I guess that part of me is just very deadline-oriented and needs that time crunch for motivation. Still, next year I vow to at least start the process sooner, which is as surefire way as any to avoid panicking.
