It's been a long week. I'm not sure if it's because of the long five-day holiday weekend before, or if I'm just feeling lazy as winter approaches. Maybe I need to hibernate. Somebody wake me up when it snows so I don't miss it.

It's just felt long this week, with basketball practice starting and Christmas programs at church and all the plans still outstanding for the holidays. It's like wow-we've-about-three-weeks-'til-Christmas, and dang-we've-only-got-three-weeks-'til-Christmas.

If you're like me (you're not, but pretend, ok?), you've got alot to get done before the holidays, while still leaving yourself enough to do during the holidays. That week right around Christmas will drag on and on, as people get slack and look forward to Christmas travels more than meeting this or that deadline in February. I'm taking a good bit of time off this year - 12/24 thru 01/02 - and I'm really looking forward to it. But the time leading up to that week and a half will be hurry-hurry-rush-rush-lazy around here.

Here are some things I'd like to do well and often this Christmas:
  • take pictures - we just don't get enough photos through the year, and I think we're at a point with the digital cam and our PC that we can take more snapshots and do more with them without taking too much effort
  • watch "holiday classics" with kids - you can never get enough of the really good specials (and I'm already tired of the Nickelodeon versions, ok?!?)
  • watch "adult holiday classics" with my beloved - no, she doesn't always "get" Christmas Vacation, but I'd rather watch and giggle with her than anyone else; and there's nothing like the 24-hr A Christmas Story marathon to make Christmas Eve a real treat
  • get A Wish For Wings That Work for the kids and I; haven't seen it available on DVD yet, and not sure if it'll come on TV or not, but Opus' adventure at Christmas is really cool
