Most people have a list of things to get done by Christmas that include some of the following:
Buy a present for Mom
Buy a present for spouse
Hang the stockings
Decorate the tree
Hang the outside lights
Distribute cookies to neighbors and friends
You get the idea.
I asked for a new kitchen for Christmas so my list of things to get done before Christmas looks more like this:
Empty all the drawers and cabinets
Pick up gift cards for the in-laws on way to Lowe's for sandpaper, varnish and stain
Remove all the drawers and doors
Stop by granite place and order countertops
sand base cabinets
Buy gifts for daughter's family stationed in Guam
sand doors and drawers (24 more doors to go!)
Go to post office to mail gifts to Guam on way to Lowes for tile for backsplash
Remind self to get gifts for youngest daughter and son
rip out old counters
remind self to get gifts for youngest daughter and son
install granite (still waiting for the granite people)
Icy weather stalls sanding of doors for cabinets (Still 24 to go...)
Christmas is really soon and I don't have gifts for Mom and Dad, daughter and son
Tree is NOT up and won't be
House is a disaster and son is coming on Christmas Eve.
