Learning to plan ahead during the holidays is a lesson in frustration

Filed under: Just For Moms, Activities: Babies

Now that I am a mother of two, a wife and a work-from-home-mom, I'm finding that getting everything done in time is harder than I thought.

Weekends have already been a source of do-it-all frustration, but now I've added the Christmas card picture and finding those final few presents to my list. We drove past the mall yesterday and saw a parking lot filled to capacity. Luckily, I don't need to get any presents from the mall, but I guess I'm not alone in the "do it all on the weekend" holiday mentality.

I'm halfway finished with making my Christmas cards. Yes, I know I don't have to do that, but it is a hobby I really enjoy doing. But add in presents, working, taking care of kids and everything else and well, I think I'm ready to hire a personal assistant for the Christmas season.

Since in my case misery loves company, I'd love to hear if anyone else is feeling the holiday frustration this early. Do you have any tips to help me get my act together? When do you find the time to get ready during the holiday season?
