Me every year before Christmas season:
This year I’m going to make healthy choices for myself to stay grounded. Like, stick to my calming decaf teas instead of coffee, which my body tells me feels so much better.
GIVE ME ALL THE COFFEEEEEES.
Before the holidays:
I’m going to buy gifts early and ship in plenty of time to reduce stress!
Me this week:
OH CRAP OH CRAP WHY DON’T I HAVE PRIORITY MAIL BOXES! I’LL TRADE MY FIRSTBORN AND A COFFEE FOR ONE RIGHT NOW!
Me before Christmas:
We will make homemade hand-crafted thoughtful teacher gifts made of love and unicorns
Me two days before the last day of preschool:
PEACE OUT, MAKING MY THIRD RUN TO THE STORE TO BUY GIFT CARDS!
Merry Christmas everyone. May you stay sane amidst the chaos and find time for self-care. (Real self-care. Like, time to breathe deep and tune out the noise. Coffees are optional. Though I am totally drinking one as I type this.)
