Are you one of those crazy people????

Are you one of those crazy people that has the Christmas tree up, house decorated and all of your shopping done and wrapped under the tree???? Augh! I SO WISH I was one of them! I'm jealous of those people. Every year I say I'm doing it all early, and that never happens.

Now, I love getting my tree up and decorated early. One of them is usually up right before Thanksgiving simply because I love that it gets us all in the holiday mood early and motivates me to get organized. Mine would be up right now if I hadn't thrown a fit and threw mine out last year! Gotta love those pre-lit trees that always has a section that burns out. Every year I have had that happen, so I pitched that thing last year! This is a picture from last year and you can probably see several sections that had lights out.

So, I'm already planning our trip out to the Christmas tree farm so I can get my decorate on!! For now I'm making lists. Lists of everything. I'm a list maker, but it keeps me on track. I have a shopping list going, Christmas Eve meal list going, stocking stuffer list, gift giving list, and Christmas card list. I finally wised up a few years back and started a note book for all of it and can just refer back to the previous year on what I baked, cooked and bought for gifts. It's a time saver for sure! The problem right now is I can't find my book. I put it somewhere safe last year....too safe, and now I can't find it.

So, what do you do to keep yourself from going crazy over the holidays and to keep you organized?
