Every Day is Christmas

Like last year, I have signed up for Holidailies. An entry for every day in December (technically it runs from 5 December through 6 January). After signing up I promptly forgot to post yesterday and I'm running late tonight. Better late then never.

A side benefit of ordering most of your Christmas presents on line is that it makes everyday seem almost like Christmas. First there is that lovely feeling of accomplishment as present after present falls into your shopping cart and it's only slightly painful when you enter that credit card number for the Xth time. Then over the course of the next several days you can track your presents as they travel from spots all over the country and all heading to your front door. Then everyday the brown UPS truck or white Fed Ex truck or even the trusty U.S. Postal Service is dropping things at your front door and ringing the doorbell. All of which sets the dog off in a barking frenzy until you answer the door and bring your treasures indoors. And tomorrow that doorbell will be ringing again as these Santa helpers deliver the goodies. It is almost like Christmas every day. Now all I need to do is wrap them. Hmmm...maybe tomorrow.
