best holiday card ever by bipolarbetty

is it just me or does is feel like the holidays are a bit of a runaway train this year? wasn't summer, like, yesterday and it feels like christmas is tomorrow. where the heck did the year go  and am i going to survive the rest of 2011? and when is chanukah? and where is the menorah? didn't we just move to portland 2 months ago?
