Gingerbread Cookie Pie

I’m pretty sure we can all agree that the week before Christmas is the most INSANE WEEK IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. We’re all bustling, hustling and working (and werking) to get everything wrapped up and done before everyone peaces out for the rest of the year.

Next week I have a massage booked. I’m going to Palm Springs for a few days to rest up and do absolutely nothing.

I’m talking…tree finally goes up a week before Christmas. Gifts ordered two days before Christmas Eve. This, of course, leads to frantic calls to the post office. Passive aggressive conversations with Fedex. Paying a bit more in postage so holiday cards make it on time. Staying up late wrapping. STRESS!

Holiday drama. Lots of it. I think part of me likes it…deep down inside I find it super entertaining. And also, I’m busy working. I dunno. I don’t have time to commit all this time to this holiday, man.

So I wing it. Year after year.

You want to wing the holiday season and still come out successful? I have some professional procrastination tips…
