Crunch Time

Sunday, December 19th, 2004 • No Comments on Crunch Time

I have managed to opt out of most of the holiday craziness this year—much to my relief—but now it’s Christmas week and that means finishing the things I want to do this holiday season.  Like buying gifts for people I love (okay, some of them I just like a lot).  Like writing cards to people who have taken the time to send one to me.  Like buying food for a lovely Christmas eve dinner (much as I joke about making pizza, or something equally un-Christmasy, it won’t happen).  Then there are the things I don’t want to do but will because, well, I must

.  Work.  Pay the bills.  Clean the house.  Go to the post office and mail a dozen packages.  You know the drill.

It’s funny how I can give up my need for Martha Stewart perfection this holiday season, but there are certain things that make Christmas Christmas for me.  These things, these traditions I won’t sacrifice no matter how late I have to stay up to complete them, are a pleasure.

I just wish I had more time to do them.
