“Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.”

~Terry Pratchett

Years ago, I bought presents throughout the year to assure that I would have the latest and greatest gifts for those on my list.

Years ago, I would make out my list months in advance and slowly check it off on a regular basis.

Years ago, I loaded up on stocking stuffers, finding, if I do say so myself, the most unusual items.

Years ago, I searched near and far for new recipes of sweets and treats to delight my family and friends. I baked cookies that took days to complete decorating. Not to mention the pies, the cakes, the fudge, the peanut butter balls.

Years ago, the Christmas cards were in the mail by the first of December.

Years ago, I would be so exhausted by Christmas day, all I wanted for Christmas was to sleep until New Year’s.

This year?

We are so not going there.

But I am in just as much holiday spirit as before.

Just without all the work.

But, I never say never, and this time next year may be a different story.

Everyone deserves a rest occasionally.

And this year, it is my turn. :cool:
