in the big woods

December 19, 2011


This picture is from like two weeks ago. You know, when I should have been focusing on Christmas to-do lists, but was instead just walking around Target aimlessly, not buying anything.

Now I’m all stressed and I wish Christmas didn’t have to be that way and sure I do a lot of it to myself by procrastination but it also seems like even if I do some things ahead of time, the lists just keep adding stuff to themselves. (yes, I realize that’s a hugely confusing run-on sentence but I’m too tired to change it.)

I wish this season was more like it was on the prairie. You know, with the Ingalls, in the little house. Just candy and a violin and some food to make the whole family overjoyed. No hustle and bustle, just a cozy fire and some singing and tradition.

Anyway. I love Christmas. I really do. I especially love the idea of Christmas being like that.

I really have no point. I just wanted to share the Elsie at Target photo because I love Elsie and Target and the way the lights are. And now I have to go keep spinning my wheels. Why is that when I have a Christmas to-do list, I suddenly believe that all other things have to be done too? Like all the laundry and cleaning? That’s just silly.

The End.

P.S. I asked Asher what I should do to stop being so stressed and he said, “Eat more.” Apparently I’m teaching really good coping skills.

(I like that idea. Where are the sugar cookies?)
