It’s almost Halloween. Want to hear something really scary?

There are only 57 shopping days left until Christmas! (See, I told you it was scary.) Did that frighten you enough? It did me.

When I heard on the news the other day the sobering figure that there were just 60 days until Christmas, it made me jump. Yes, Halloween has become a calendar milestone in the countdown to Christmas.

That can only mean one thing: the mother is hurriedly wrapping packages. And, oh, is she ever!
According to her, having made a bazillion bows last year really helped out. She’s only had to make a few. This seems to be an activity that she likes though. And God knows she is more than skilled at it.

October is also a springboard to another countdown, too. This one occurs shortly after the start of every year: Scrapbook Escape (otherwise known as Crop Camp!) In fact, I received my official 2011 invite just last night! This brings up some very important questions. MG, will you be roomie? Mama Martha, Harriet, are you all ready to go?

But then, there’s also the most important question of all: ARE WE THERE YET?!

Soon, I’ll be putting up the annual counter to see just how far off we are …

as they say...BOOYAH! I would be honored to be your roomie! And for the record, I actually have a few presents bought this year and I am not ready for this shopping frenzy!

So not ready to hear a countdown to Christmas. I want to stay in denial, thankyouverymuch.
