Oh the holiday period.
It’s so much fun!
And so calm. So peaceful. So orderly…
I think the only calm thing about Christmas is the baby Jesus! Coz he was asleep!
[But seriously how did he sleep through the noise in the stable though?!?]
Anyway, I have found that the way to organize a measure of calm through the holiday period is to do some planning ahead, and be reeeeally patient with the rest of it!
So I am not going to labor this today. I am just going
This is what I use to plan what I have to be at and what I need to remember to have when I go there!
This is how I plan out what gifts to buy for who.
And when it comes to the big day itself and the meal preparation, I use this to plan out what I need to do.
It’s not that fancy. But it works for me, and it might for you too.
Good luck organizing your bit of calm!
