I did it! For the first time in years, all of my Christmas packages are in the mail and I didn’t even have to spring for the expensive express post as they were wrapped and at the post office in plenty of time. Even the Christmas cards, which in the last few years have sadly become new years cards, are out. It’s a Christmas miracle.
Now, why don’t I feel relief?
Unfortunately, I already know the answer. It’s because I have this insane need to do even more. I finished most of the shopping early so I decided to take on crafts for all the kids as special gifts from mom. That’s great, in theory, but now I have all this material waiting for me to find time to haul out my sewing machine (and liberate it from the years of dust which I’m sure will render it useless).
Do I do too much? Yes. Do I know how to stop? No.
