I am a procrastinator. I don't mean to be, but I tend to put things off until they have to be done. Or I don't start getting ready until the last possible minute, when I can never really get myself and Ashlyn ready in that amount of time. Sometimes, I think I am doing really well, and then something happens to make me very behind in everything (like moving in October put me behind on getting everything ready for the baby.)
I thought that I was AHEAD on my Christmas shopping. I ordered Ashlyn's gift before Thanksgiving. But, then they wouldn't send it to an APO (even though their shipping policy said otherwise.) And neither would the next company that I tried. I decided to send it to Arkansas and have it mailed to me from there. Oh, wait, the company isn't even going to ship it for 2 to 3 weeks. It will barely arrive in Arkansas before Christmas! Santa cannot be late on presents. So, scratch that gift, Allen and I are going to Toys r' Us next week.
But for family, I only had a couple more things to buy this weekend, and it was just the first of December. That seemed great. Most of the boxes were packed to be mailed. Then I realized that I hadn't ordered Christmas cards yet, and they needed to be mailed right away, too. Agh. There isn't enough time for everything. But, those boxes will be shipped tomorrow.
