Crystal's Corner

Hello readers, hope you all had a super week.

Now is the time of year when you can feel the pull of the holiday season that lies ahead. Christmas. Like a vortex, the season swallows up time, money, and yes, for some, patience. The holiday of longer line-ups, trampling on toes, and an elbow here and there, is upon us. So here's a few tips if you feel yourself already getting stressed: Keep your cool. There's still six more weeks until Christmas Day. Okay, that doesn't really help - six more weeks - yeesh.

If you've been shopping throughout the year, you may already be finished. If you haven't, set your pace, and proceed ahead as best you can. Patience is really important. Without it, you lose your cool and find yourself expending in all directions. The holidays will come along anyway, and if you're like most people, you always find that in the end, it was a great one whether everything got done on your "to do list" or not. 

Have a great week everyone.
