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.
