For the last few days I have had the niggling feeling that I must be behind on the various Christmassy things I usually do.  Things like buying Christmas gifts so they can be sent east to relatives in time for the 25th and sending out Christmas cards or, for that matter, having Christmas cards to send in the first place.  I have no concrete idea whether I actually AM behind, however, because I haven’t had the time to actually check.

Rather, I haven’t taken the time to survey the situation and determine exactly how far behind I am. I’m not especially looking forward to it, since I have a feeling it will produce a mild to moderate feeling of panic, but I recognize the necessity of the exercise.

So that’s my project for this morning: figure out what needs to be done, by when, and then get to work.  If I get that done, I’ll be working on a query letter for the manuscript.  My first attempt, last week, was Super Lame.  And I have an outside, unbiased opinion on that as well, so don’t try to tell me I’m exaggerating.  I’m not.  It was LAME.

Now, to find last year’s list of people who got gifts and cards….
