He sees you when you’re sleeping.
He knows when you’re awake.
Anyone else freaked out about a strange fat man in a red suit watching you sleep while he smokes a pipe? Or a stalker elf doll who zip-lines around your house, gift wraps your toilet seat and soaks in a marshmallow bath while on special assignment for the fat strange man? Is Ho Ho Ho something that should be shouted at young children? If reindeer fly in the sky, then why did Grandma get run over by them? And how do reindeer fly when they don’t have wings? Why does Santa Claus have so many names? Is it Santa Claus, Kris Kringle or St. Nick? Did he do something wrong requiring him to have multiple aliases? And how the hell did Frosty come to life?!
Yup, as I lay awake and think these wacky thoughts, I realize I’ve got the Christmas crazies! Symptoms include exhaustion bordering on delirium; wild and crazy children; and way too much to do before December 25th!
Don’t worry, a little case of the Christmas Crazies can’t keep me from having fun and doing the things I love. This past weekend, I managed to run a 5K race, spend time with friends and take a trip to the North Pole with my children on the Polar Express. My house is a mess and not one present has been wrapped yet. I just ordered my Christmas cards yesterday.
Tis the season to be crazy with dinners and parties and special events galore!
Somehow I will get it all done but don’t ask me to explain. Somehow, some way. Like Rudolph guiding Santa’s sleigh, I believe.
