In Which I Ask Santa for Help with Facebook and Instagram Blocks

Chronic Christmas Giveaway #4: Your Choice

And so, we come to the end of this year’s Advent giveaways. Throughout the year your comments, thoughts, jokes, and support means so very much to me. It has been wonderful to be able to give something back to you. For the fourth Chronic Christmas Giveaway, the winner will enjoy two things that will hopefully make 2018 better. One will help you keep your life organized so you feel less overwhelmed. And second, often, a bit of downtime starts with a cup of something hot — the other will help you transition into the Christmas habit of hygge into a year-long way of taking care of yourself.  The person who wins with get their choice of one of the five calendars I created for this year , as well as their choice of a Chronic Christmas mug or a Your Life with RA mug . To enter, leave a comment on this post. Say whatever you want — are ready for the holidays? What’s your favourite Christmas cookie? What are your wishes for 2018? And if any of those seem too complicated
