One of these years I am going to plan a Christmas party...wait, scratch that. One of these years I am going to actually HOST a party. The planning is the easy part to me. Planning out all the decorations and food and invitations is actually fun. It's the "playing hostess" that I seem to have trouble with. But that's a post for another day. At this grand Christmas party, I will also have an exchange. But we won't swap ornaments or cookies. We won't trade white elephant gifts or recipes or gift cards to random stores that will go out of business before we can redeem them. As much as I enjoy doing all that, I have a better idea.
We will exchange time.
Once again, this holiday season is upon me way too fast (I actually have done a bit of my shopping, though. Yay me! I'm ahead of schedule.) and I have no time to organize a party for my girlfriends. Perhaps next year. In the meantime, I will eat the holiday cookies, hang the wagon wheel ornament and Google the location of the Cheese Warehouse so I can spend this gift card.
