Bah Humbug!!!

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.

I'm so sorry you're so stressed out. We are certainly in scary times right in general and I'm sorry they are hitting you specifically. You don't have to do all the extra stuff. Stick to the stuff that HAS to be done then just hunker down with your family.

I hope things improve for you quickly.
