It's my first Christmas 'on my own' ... with Joshua. I didn't use anyone else's money to buy presents, I didn't let my parents have the 'shopping stress' all to themselves.. I did stuff on my own. Decorated my stuff, on my own. (With Joshua's help). But my point is that I didn't have my parents helping me.. It's my first 'adult Christmas'.
Unfortunately, I got over excited and started doing Christmas shopping in early October! I was finished Christmas shopping before Halloween! Therefor, I've been 'in the Christmas spirit' for a pretty long time now. And it's seemed like November and this part of December has taken sooo long to get here!
I suppose that you could say I went a little crazy on my first Christmas. But I've enjoyed it! Although I'm starting to feel the exhaustation kick in. Who know's maybe I'll get a spa certificate or a homeade coupon for a free back-rub. hehe
Now, I'm not one to brag or anything, but I really must say that I am so proud of myself for my first Christmas, I think I've done things pretty well. Shopping, cooking, wrapping, decorating -- all of it. Everything may not be totally perfect, but it is done and ready for everyone to enjoy.
Basically, I'm ready for Christmas - I was ready months ago. And guess what? My wait is almost over!
Anyone else this excited??
