All The Things I Haven’t Done

This Tuesday is officially day six of my Christmas holiday and after sharing so many projects with you lately, let’s get real again. Here is my first list I am going to share with you now (be prepared I am all about lists especially around this time of the year, so many more will follow).

The list of all the things I haven’t done and should have done or wanted to have done by now.

  1. I have not figured out what I am going to bring to Christmas dinner (I just know it should be tapas)
  2. I do not know what I am going to wear to Christmas dinner
  3. I have not bought, written or sent one Christmas card
  4. I have not written a couple of ‘back up posts’ as I have been wanting to do forever.
  5. I have not cleaned up my craft room after my recent Christmas crafting spree
  6. I have not made a gift for a baby shower right after Christmas
  7. I have not finished putting together a surprise packet for my out-of-the-country sister (will be glad if it arrives there before the new years).
  8. I have not thrown one snow ball yet
  9. I have hardly taken any snow pictures
  10. I have not worked on any of the projects that keep bouncing around in my head and that I want to share with you all.

“What Have I been doing?”

Well nothing really. Just hanging out with my laptop, reading magazines, eating to much chocolate, watching to many chick flicks, making lists and thinking about all the things I could be doing.

How about you? Are you still in go-go mood or have you slowed down too?

    Hi Marianne and Happy Holidays!

    I am hoping to slow down tomorrow so I can enjoy myself. Don't worry about what you have not done and just relax and enjoy yourself!!

    I hope your upcoming year will be filled with love and magic!

    Merry Merry,

    I was like that a week ago and then had a burst of energy and got everything done in 1 day. Still got a few more things I want to make, think I will do those this afternoon. I've only just written and posted my cards too. Don't worry though, why don't you send out ecards on the premise that it's more eco friendly? :-)

    Honestly I could stay on the computer all day and look at what everyone else has done. You are all amazing! Merry Christmas!

    I'm still going full speed ahead, but probably in the wrong direction! I didn't send out any Christmas cards this year. Postage is just too expensive.

    I know just how you feel…I'm sooooo behind…still have 60% of my gifts to wrap (I love to spend time making them special…that just might not happen this year)…got to make sure all my bills are paid…having a dinner party tomorrow night…and the list goes on and on! I hope you get all your things done and have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Heehee… Marianne, I think that's okay!

    I just sent my Christmas cards out yesterday and have only wrapped one gift! Oh well… it'll get done sometime.

    Hoi! Alles okee daar? Ik was zelf totaal gevloerd en daarna heb ik maar een (blog) pauze genomen. Jij ook? Ik hoop dat je genoten hebt van een heerlijke Kerstvakantie. Ik wil jou en je lief een prachtig, gezond en gelukkig 2010 toewensen!

    Hallo Marianne, ik heb net de hele maand december gelezen. Schitterend al die mooie kerstdecoraties. Wil ik ook volgend jaar. Kom je dan bij mij decoreren?

    I'm a lady of lists also! And journals, and calendars! As much as I love them they can be overwhelming. I love your 'what i'm not doing list' I had not thought to do that.
