I know I am going to catch a lot of flack for this one, but I am checking out of CHristmas this year. I think our lives are too much up in the air. I can only handle a certain amount mentally and I don't know if I can get there this time. Normally i am the one outside after work putting up our display and pushing Don to decorate. Right now, I don't have it in me to make it there. Life is so uncerain for everyone and I am wore out. I get like this occasionally, but I have never gone this far. I talked to the kids about it and thy laughed and said: "Mom, it's not the decorations that makes the holiday special..." I felt a very heartwarming moment until another one piped up and said: "That's right , Mom. It's all about the presents..." To which they darted out fo the room giggling hysterically as I swatted for their rear ends. Thanks heavens they were joking!!! Otherwise, my motherhood skills would have hit an all time low!!!!
I have had a few healthy doses of Christmas movies so that has been fun. Christmas Carols are on my mind and crossing my lips daily, but for now...Deck the Halls is not happening.
