and the winner is

Only twentytwo more days and it will be Christmas. It hardly seems possible doesn't it? I still have so much to do and am so far behind on everything. I think it's because I try to do too much and never leave myself enough time to do it all and then I start feeling stressed and when I get too stressed I get sick. That just makes me more stressed because when I'm sick I'm not getting anything done.

Having said that I'm keeping this simple. No need to make a big production out of it. Right??
