The holiday seems to barreling toward me at a fast and furious pace this year. I thought I was handling it well, with my Christmas shopping completed by Thanksgiving. I mean, who does that? And, I was really proud of it too.
But then last night I looked up and I still need to get the trees up, the house decorated, the outside done, the cookies baked, the fudge made and my list seems to be endless. The Captain says I should just not do so much this year. I don't even know what that looks like.
I like the trees and the decorations and the baking and the wrapping and everything else that comes with the holidays, but for whatever reason, this year seems to be more work than enjoyment. And I wish I could get the enjoyment back.
Then I thought this picture would help. It didn't. Just makes me wish I had more time to get ready for the holidays. Which annoys me, because I am the one who complains when the decorations come out the day after Halloween. This year I am wishing that I had started then.
I need help. Tell me what to do in order to find that Christmas Cheer I am without. I promise to try anything once, except jumping out of an airplane. That was the recommendation from my IT guy. But he's crazy to begin with.
