In panic mode but enjoying every minute

I’m a stress eater and it has been a stressful week. I’ve eaten so much chocolate that I feel like Bart:

Don’t get me wrong — my week wasn’t bad, just busy. In fact, my birthday on Wednesday was wonderful. I received loads of lovely presents, including this pretty party-platter from my sweet DP. I can’t wait to use it!

The Christmas spirit is so pervasive that I’m having a hard time focusing on work. Wrapping presents and baking are much more fun.

The tree is about halfway decorated,

and presents are appearing under it (albeit not in that photo). Christmas is almost here! It’s definitely time to dig out seasonal music, movies and books. I may be a little late to the party, but so what?

Prayers for all those traveling this week! Go slowly and keep both hands on the wheel, your eye on the road, and God in your heart!
