Truth be told...

I am a first born. So I'd like to think, that naturally, I'm an organizer. Someone who can't stand clutter, is always punctual, and never misses a beat. To a certain extent, I am these things (except punctual, I think you loose all punctuality when you have kids!). What really got me thinking about this was my Christmas list. I've had that bad boy written out since before Thanksgiving. I knew what I wanted to get, what  I needed to get, and where the best prices would be. I made sure my packages were here weeks before, to leave room for error. I've crossed all t's and dotted all i's. I've even had things wrapped for well over two weeks! So, I should be able to kick back and relax, right?

It seems that I've done so much ahead of time that I've left myself worrying that I have forgotten something, didn't do something, or didn't pick something up. I hate that feeling! It's just that everything has gone as perfect as can be so far, that I'm shocked. I find that this happens often, if I prepare everything to much in advanced. I'm left to twiddle my thumbs and wait around, and I just can't do that. I've found that if I've procrastinated up until, say the night before (hello middle school history fair!) then I feel like the next morning I've accomplished some great feat and that I've got it all under control.

Is there such a thing as being to prepared? Have you finished all your shopping yet? 5 days left! The excitement is growing over here!
