Carry on

I've hit my Christmas slump.

I've got lots of things done, but I still have more to do.

I just don't want to do it all.

I'm hoping tonight's elementary school Christmas concert will get me back in the mood.


At lunch today, Tired-Papa called and asked me what I was doing on my lunch hour. 

'Shopping,' I replied.

He paused, and I knew that he was thinking about our Visa statement.

'Are we almost done?' he asked.

'We need toilet paper, milk and a green vegetable for dinner,' I replied.

And that, my friends, in a nutshell is the problem with Christmas - everyday life stuff still needs to happen too.

Somebody send me some cheer, will ya?

  1. We are past the kid programs and parties. *sigh* and I admit I have plenty of time.
    I can’t seem to get motivated.
    I keep playing Christmas music and eating candy, hoping the mood will grow in me but nothing’s happening.
    I actually have more done that I first realized – just have to get everything organized.
    Something that helps me is to buy a gift for somebody who is not expecting it, or better yet, an anonymous present. Really, it’s fun and doesn’t have to cost a lot.
