The perfect gifts don't exist for kids whose parents buy them everything (and for kids whose birthdays are 2 months before Christmas). We will be excited to receive mail and are looking forward to tearing through the presents with lightning speed-- squeaker, unfortunately, has been practicing with the gifts under our tree.

Glad you are letting go. I was there with you in your panic attack last night. My list of things to do is so long and I don't even have a party to host! My problem is that I don't want to go out in the freezing cold at night to do them and I would rather not haul 2 whiners around to do them either!

Oh, and I will be at the post office today with you -- woo hoo!!!

I keep getting distracted by thinking of ONE! MORE! totally unnecessary thing I COULD do (make fudge for teachers! ship extra gift to friend!), and having to remind myself there are BIGGER PRIORITIES and that I don't have to do EVERYTHING that crosses my mind.

Want me early for house cleaning on Sat. I am good and do as I am told. love dad

I have let go of several things too. I might still get to them, but now that I have decided that they are not necessary I feel far less stressed. Probably do need to clean my house, mind - my kids have gleefully torn it apart while I was busy doing the 'must do' list...
