On Saturday I was walking out of Walmart just like any other weekend when I was stopped in my tracks by a considerably large sign above the exit. 38 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS it screamed at me. Annnd my brain pretty much busted a gasket. How is that possible? Plus, it has now been two days since then which means it is now only 36 days! It's wild times, people. Less than two weeks until Thanksgiving and a mere smattering of days until Christmas day. I'm excited. I'm scared. I'm stressed. I'm elated. I want it to come fast. I want it to come slow. I have so many feelings.

However, the blessing of this time of year which sets it apart from all the others is that although you will likely be consumed with a number of complex emotions regarding the season, the opportunities at your disposal to aid in the management of said emotions abound. Pie. Hot chocolate. Pumpkin things. Peppermint things. Plus, mandatory retail therapy in the form of gift buying. We can do this. So I say BRING IT HOLIDAYS. You and your big signs counting down the days have nothin' on what I can and WILL bake/buy in order to combat/enjoy you. Everything is gonna be fine.

Or just be smarter than me and don't go to Walmart. It's really not good for the blood pressure.
