dec 9 - this date...2 years ago!!
i had planned to compare what i did last year on this date to what i am doing today. turns out I didn't have a blog post for this date. i was doing...nothing. well, actually i was doing a lot but i can bet you anything it had nothing to do with Christmas......or preparing for Christmas.
i had started working full time last fall and i was overwhelmed....very overwhelmed. decorating for Christmas was the furthest from my mind. blogging even further.
so i had to go back 2 years to see how exactly i was preparing for the holidays. i was making christmas crackers. not crackers the food - but the kind you pull apart - and if you are lucky enough - hard enough to hear the "POP" that occurs right before the litte treats that are inside come flying out. come to think of it - i'm not even sure we made them at all last year b/c i had simply run out of time - or energy - but most likely both.
but that was then - and this now. i plan to make them this year. i do hope to make them this year. only time will tell.
