Meh... holidays.


 I don't know Linus, I'm just not into Christmas this year. I'm not sure what is going on with me but I'm absolutely not feeling Christmas. When I walk through the stores, I don't even notice the decorations. Maybe because I haven't turned the television on since February, I'm not getting hit with all the commercials, possibly that's one reason. I don't mean I'm sad or depressed by the approaching holidays, I'm completely indifferent to them.

 A week until Christmas eve, I have nothing done and what's worse, I really didn't have that much to do. I was supposed to do some painting back in the fall, fix the place up a little and invite people over. I kept procrastinating and now it's too cold to open windows, so I don't want to paint, can't stand the fumes. Well there is also that little thing about Christmas being next week! I keep saying that it feels like I just put the decorations away, so maybe if I keep walking around like a zombie, it will pass and I won't notice a thing.

 I had planned on putting up Christmas lights December first, I thought that way... I would get full value out of my frozen fingers. Usually I like the lights up by second or third week of December because of the darkness at this time of year. However I haven't noticed the short days this year, it's very odd, I hope I'm not going to get hit by some "late dark days " depression or something strange like that.

 To help myself get into the Christmas mood, I bought something that usually helps kick start my holiday mood. This always reminds me of being at my maternal grandmother's house. I love the music in the cartoon as well.

 Good grief... if Snoopy can't help me... then nobody can!

Yes, I have been having trouble with the holidays as well. Fortunately I found a little something to get you into the spirit of the season.

You can invite people over even if your kitchen isn't painted, y'know.

Ohh That's a cute cartoon!
And don't worry about being on time with lights and all that. You can put them up on Xmas day if you want to!

XOXO

I hate Christmas. Husband loves it. I fly to Spain with the in-laws next week so it will be a triple whammy of cheer. I will grin and bear it.

As I see it, Christmas came on really fast after Thanksgiving for us and it seems like we've been playing catch up.
So much so that our Christmas Party at Casa Bob y Carlos is really an After Party this year because we're headed out of town this weekend.

Oh well, it tis what it tis...the season.!

I didn't put up holiday decorations this year. Not even a wreath on the door.

Get yourself over to maddies place, steven. There's enough Christmas cheer for us all. Call for me on the way! X

No lights here, no decorations, except for the doggy snow globe. Quiet is so much better.

I’m in the same boat. But I had some eye surgery and can’t lift more than 10 pounds right now. So screw the decorations this year. Like they say, Christmas is in the heart.
