"Oh, the weather outside is frightful..."
And this month is far from delightful.
Yeah, so not the holiday spirit. But I'm trying not to feel like scrooge so hard it's causing more stress. The kiddies are full of the sickies. If it's not one it's the other, like their having a race to see who can vomit first and best. Okay, a little exaggeration, but the tummy hurts, the head hurts, there's a fever here, and a lot of snot there...
I bought Christmas cards early, but they aren't addressing and signing themselves. Imagine that! I think another year is going to go by without a tree...or decorations. 'Cuz the house won't clean itself either, and there isn't anywhere to put the tree.
Last but surely not least, this month always starts with the dreaded work project. Every year it's the worst time of the year. The stress is palpable.
Here's to hoping that a few days before Christmas, there's honest to goodness joy around here.
