This Christmas

Christmas never cease to be my favorite time of the year. An event I always look forward to, and I consider more important than my birthday. This excitement rooted form my childhood memories. I remember how I used to hang my Christmas socks on our window on the 24th of December  so that Santa won't have a hard time looking for a perfect place for my gifts. That I believed, until I caught my family at midnight sneaking on my socks to put the present.

This year I started to draft my plans as early as September from the gifts list down to the smallest detail. But no matter how I tried to create a perfect plan to accomplish everything, I am still short and way behind my Christmas schedule. We only have 9 days until Christmas and now I am conditioning myself for the Christmas shopping rush which is most likely to happen because I am not yet even on the 1/4 of my plans. Not to mention that I have to stay here (work) until the 24th before I could finally join my family for the celebration. It's another battle against long line on ticket booths, heavy traffic and if there's no more seat available - stand in the bus for almost 2 hours just to get home.

That's how messy life will be for me this coming 9 days and if you have spare time, please lend me some. But everything is worth the effort and time. Christmas is my favorite and the most special.

And a little update to the people who are interested and concern. First thank you so much. Right now I am caught in the middle of a busy season in our office and several books to read. End of the year (4th Quarter) seems to be the hardest and the most hectic schedule for us with endless meetings every now and then. 

I 'll be in touch and will response to your kind emails and tweets asap. Thanks!

  3. Very few of us have any extra time to lend at this time of year. I, too, am rushing around trying to get everything done before the big day. But at least we won't be traveling this year, so we don't hae to worry about long lines and heavy traffic.

    Good luck in getting through the days ahead. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas.

  18. Oh, there is never enough time to squeeze it all in. (I've been cutting down my to do list myself.)

    Good food and good company. That is what I am focusing on. Happy Holidays, Sey.

  19. I miss you! How are you? December is also my favorite month, but also a busy month for everybody. I thought I was done with my Christmas shopping last Saturday then when I saw my newest addition in my long list of inaanak in Facebook, I realize I forgot to include here in my list! I guess I have to wear a helmet and head out to the mall on the 22nd or 23rd. Para kang nasa battlefield pag pupunta ka ng mall few days before Christmas! hehehe.... Hugs!♥

  23. Thanks Twin sis. I'm kinda busy at work cause it's the end of the year and I took the time to spend the holidays with friends and love ones. I'm glad your done with your list. Mine is not yet complete.

  24. No matter how I planned everything, time is always scarce. Maybe I have to cut down my list too so I can accomplish everything. Good food and good company will definitely complete the coming holiday.

    Merry Christmas!

  25. Hahaha, yes you better wear an helmet because the last time I went to the mall to complete my list, there was a blast of people and all the counters were full even the food courts. When I checked my list yesterday, kulang pa din pala ako ng 3 gifts. But the gifts to my inaanak were complete - thank God. Hugs for you and I miss you too. I'm doing great and hope you'll have a fruitful and happy Christmas.
