Who else is feeling tired and stressed about Christmas and it’s not even here yet? My to-do list is a mile long- I need to finish kindy class and teacher presents, buy the last Christmas presents, prepare the house for hosting Christmas Day for 22 people, plan the shopping lists and so, so much more.
