Have you decided yet? How far WILL you go this year....... to celebrate Christmas in July????? I have been procastinating for too long! I have been "thinking about" doing a Christmas in July Family Party.... while ds, ddil and dgd are visiting. They will not be here at Christmas...... so this is a very special opportunity! So.... what's the problem? I guess the problem is...... "PERFECTIONISM"!!!!! I feel that I MUST get the house perfectly cleaned and decluttered..... BEFORE I can decide whether or not to get the tree down from the attic, wrap gifts, etc . WHY do I think this? I have NEVER had a "perfect Christmas". I've really never even heard of one! So.... WHY am I setting standards SO MUCH HIGHER than any of my family would ever expect? I LOVE Christmas..... and I NEVER think ANY PART OF IT.... has to be perfect! So.... I guess I will go ahead and decide.... YES! I WILL do this!
