Every person knows about the holiday crunch, a time when there is too much to do and not enough time. One must buy gifts, decorate, bake, plan a holiday meal, et cetera.
I finished buying gifts in mid-November, decorated the Saturday after Thanksgiving with my hubby, and have a holiday meal in mind. (I do not usually bake for the holidays, and when I do, it consists of cookies from pre-made dough. Using the oven makes me anxious.) Besides, Christmas (the holiday that I and my family celebrate) will probably only be my hubby and me (as was Thanksgiving) due to COVID-19.
Why did I do so much so early?
I am about to enter an editing holiday crunch, which will last until about December 11. I was prepared for this, since I knew of the project ahead of time. It was given to me the day before Thanksgiving, and I planned things out so that Thanksgiving weekend I would work on Black Friday but not again until the following Monday. Planning, as we all know, is highly important.
I have followed my schedule thus far, and come December 11, I should be able to enjoy Christmastime.
When I was in school, particularly high school, I noticed that seemingly all of our teachers threw as much work as possible at us before the holiday break started. Right now is kind of like that (only not nearly as bad, since I love what I do).
Are you in a holiday crunch right now?
