I've hit a Christmas Wall...

I love Christmas. I had my tree and decorations up the day after Thanksgiving. I listen to Christmas Carols the whole month (which drives Scott crazy). But lately, I am just not feeling it. I realize that suddenly I have 50% more work to do on top of the work I already do. The cards, the wrapping, the baking. And the budget, Let's not even talk about that. Then Scott comes home with not one, but two cards from the giving tree at work. And he signed up to bring all the drinks for a party tomorrow night. (thanks honey).It just seems overwhelming. Whew, I feel better just writing it down! Now back to our regularly scheduled holiday cheer...


I love this one, we got these in China.

I've kind of lost my Christmas cheer too, with all the rumors flying around. I will get my Christmas cards out this weekend. (I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.)

I love the ornaments! I lost my Xmas cheer for about a minute on Friday when I was so tired and trying to get ready for the breakfast. But then I picked up the food and realized I was ready and the Christmas cheer came back ten fold. Game on! I'm glad you feel better. Try to enjoy the holiday despite the obligations it brings, k? I know you can do it! xxoo
