The Countdown Is On...

Can you believe it's only 1 more week until Christmas? Just 7 days...Wheeee!!

Actually, if we want to get technical, today's almost over. As I type, the clock indicates it is 3:05 PM, so this workday is winding down quickly, and that means there's only 6 days until Christmas!!

I just can't wait...December has been flying, but somehow, these last few days seem to drag out the longest. I still have lots of Christmas movies to watch, and plenty of odds and ends to do before the "big day", and yet, I'm still finding myself twiddling my thumbs, thinking Christmas might never come.

Of course, I have my parnoia, which I've blogged about before, that I'm still dealing with. I'm still terrified I'm going to get sick and miss the whole she-bang. Christmas only comes once a year, so the thought of missing it makes me panic.

And then there are other silly little fears - like, what if people don't like the gifts I got them? What if it rains this weekend and it ruins my Christmas spirit? What if I don't get to watch all the movies & specials I want to see? What if the weather is bad and we can't make it to Aunt Marion's on Boxing Day? Many what-ifs to cause unneccessary holiday angst.

But most of all, there is this wondeful excitement, an air of anticipation, which is only going to increase & intensify as the week progresses.

Christmas is almost here!!

FINALLY A BLOG. I have been dying of boredom today! Thank goodness you came through!

Love the Christmas Blog. Wayne and I watched Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer on Sunday at 6:00, it was great. I mean there is nothing better than watching those old shows on TV. I have the Grinch on tape because one year I missed it, but it's really just not the same. I love the scraggly image on the boob tube. It's the best!

Wayne has a video tape that he taped all the shows on, we watched it once when we began dating. So he might pull it out because his favourite show doesn't seem be air anymore this time of year. His favourite was Blue Toes.

Hey Sharon!
I remember last year you telling me Wayne liked Blue Toes...I remember it, I wish some of those ones were still on. Another one that I used to love but never see anymore is The Flintstone's Christmas. I've still got lots that I need to see - Charlie Brown Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, the Family Stone, Elf - but I've pretty much seen my favourite cartoons, like The Grinch, Frosty, Rudolph, Garfield, and Santa Claus is Coming to Town...Gosh, I get excited just thinking about all the shows!! Yay!!
