Lack of time won't defeat me

-A A +A
By Carolyn Risner

It's no secret . . . I love Christmas. From crowded stores to decorations to kitchens redolent with the aromas of cinnamon and vanilla, it's all good to me.

Every year since I can remember, I've always vowed to get an earlier start, plan better, stretch out the chores and actually enjoy the holiday I love so much.

It's only a few days into December and I can already tell I am going to fail miserably at my goals.

I like to get the Christmas cards in the mail by Dec. 1–they're laying in three heaps in my living room floor, unsigned, unstamped and waiting for me to take charge of the task.

I was telling Elli Rarick this morning that even back in the day when I didn't have two nickels to rub together, I managed to mail cards to friends and family.

I'll do it this year too but it may be Valentine's Day before they receive them.

And it's not only the cards that have put me behind schedule. It's gifts too.

I took an afternoon last week and went shopping, list in hand, determined to knock three-fourths of the names on my list out of the way.

Mission foiled.
