Can't seem to get there

I debated about posting this. Do I document how I'm really feeling or pretend that I'm feeling like the way I want to be feeling? Confused? Yeah. Me too.

I just cannot seem to get in the Christmas spirit. I feel WAY too much like an adult and the piles and PILES of laundry and other house hold chores, but who are we kidding it's always going to include laundry at my house, get in the way. That and the cost of Christmas and the added fun things that go onto our schedule are making it challenging for me.

Today the kids only had a half day of school. So I decided that today would be a stay in your pjs, for those of us not having any school to go to, and do whatever we were in the mood for kind of day. That is what I LOVED doing as a kid and I thought it would bump me right into the Christmas mood.

Instead, I am sitting here thinking about all the extra things I need to do tomorrow because I played hooky today. There is just no pleasing me.


There's still a few more days. Maybe that Christmas spirit is just waiting for the right moment to show up.

You can blame it on me if you like. I feel like a black hole that just sucks in all the Christmas spirit around me and whisks it away into the dark beyond. So, my apologies. ;)

Oh I know that feeling....It usually kicks in right about now when I am done, done, done with the whole shopping/spending money aspect of Christmas. This year our family party was on Sunday so I had to be ready a week early which I think contributed to my current funk.
I only have a few loads of laundry but I have end of year frantic paying bills to beat the 12/31 deadline for our business tax purposes weighing heavy on my mind.
Take a minute to close your eyes, take a deep breath and know that the laundry will get done in time but Christmas only comes once a year!
