...making what seems like a million trips to the grocery store. Only to get in the car and remember you forgot something yet again.
...getting your butt up early to avoid crowds (except The Housewife and I notoriously roll this way all year).
...fitting 25 people + a small poodle in your Grandmother's house for Christmas.
...religiously checking the doorstep for packages and the mailbox for Christmas cards.
...taking some R&R from work
...attending all those Christmas parties every weekend!
...watching "Home Alone" and "Christmas Vacation" as much as possible.
...remembering to water the Christmas tree.
...trying to figure out what to buy all those kids in the family (I never know).
...trying not to eat every Christmas cookie or treat that you come in contact with.
...pretty bows and wrapping paper.
...finding that perfect gift for someone.
...laughing with your girlfriends.
...looking towards a new year.
