DH retired this year and since we will be on a fixed income we decided that each of our kids will just be getting a check and each grand or great grand kid will be getting their usual ornament. Everything fits in envelopes.....no packages under the tree! I've forced myself to get those darned lights on the tree...round and round and round......sheesh! Got all the sparkly ornaments on it and our sweet angel on top. Brought out and put on display at least 625 of my Santas....skipped a few this year. Hung stockings for the 3 of us and for the five cats and the baby possum. Am not baking because I can't eat any of it but probably will buy some nice cookies from the bakery. Am not shopping because there's none to be done....except stocking stuffers. As festive as the house looks, I feel BLAH!
I've played some Christmas music................looked through pictures of Christmas past........mended a few ornaments......set up and found plugs for all the motion ornaments.....even decorated the envelopes for the kids and GKs......and it just seems to be missing something! I won't have all or even most of the kids here Christmas Eve or day since they have their own families........that's probably the BIG thing putting the kibosh on my ho ho ho!
Tell me your wonderful plans and let me celebrate vicariously through you?????????? I'm really on a downer and this NEVER happens to me at Christmas!
