Geez. Lately I never blog, and when I do, I’m all like Debbie Downer….I’m annoyed with myself, yet I keep doing it. Hold onto your seats…..
christmas! Ugh. For some reason I am so not into it this year. My kids are going to be with their dad on Christmas Eve, so I know what I will be doing. Bawling my eyes out and drowning my sorrows in wine while Santa comes down the chimney…. I get them at noon on Christmas. Last year it was the opposite and my best friend had a party Christmas night for all us stragglers, is it wasn’t so bad. I’ve already warned my best guy friend about this year, and he says he will come down and spend Christmas with me So I’m not lonely. Man I love him.
Christmas shopping! Ugh. Did I say that already? Shopping online this year has been super fun, except I keep forgetting what I bought and didn’t buy. Got out the spreadsheet and started tracking. Back when I was in a Nice happy two income relationship I tracked our gifts, and spending very Christmas. Must have been something rewarding about being able to afford it….
speaking of which…I just can’t stop giving for my kids. Why is it that at Christmas I feel the need to have the tree full of gifts?? Maybe because it was that way when I was a kid. Last year my tree looked so pitiful with only three or so for each kid. This year I’m wrapping in more packages….my youngest cried last year because Santa forgot a gift for me. Now she’s in third grade and doesn’t believe in the man, but I will make sure Santa gets a small list from me this year.
hopefully a more cherry post later, but if you made it this far, awesome!
