But the statement itself was entirely true. I had a whole stack of books I had gotten over the summer, and simply hadn't the time to read any of them. Life happened, I got busy, and books went unread. In fact, they are still in the same pile, only to be joined by another pile of books this fall that are also (you guessed it) waiting to be read.
Today, with 12 days until the Big Red One, I'm quite certain that, compared to most people, I'm WAY behind in the holiday bonanza. What's weird for me is that so far, I'm not particularly upset. I'm perfectly content to get things done when I can, and not worry about the rest. So, if you see me and ask me, "Have you decorated your Christmas tree yet?"
I'll most likely tell you, "No... BUT I BOUGHT ONE."
After all, it's not like the Three Wise Men
arrived Second-Day Air.
Stuff. Takes. Time.
