Im so wide awake at 1:30 am this morning. Why? So much to to and so little time left. It always seems that the Christmas Season is upon me before I even realize it has happened. But my motto the last few years has been "if it isn't done by now it didn't need doing" So I think I will stick with that and just proceed with caution. I still have gifts to wrap, a party to attend on sunday, festivites at work on Wednesday, and then the Christmas eve with my family. So much and so little time to just relax and enjoy the season. I haven't even really had time to enjoy the tree. My grandson is spending the night tonight and that will take away from my time to get much done. So cross this evening off my list and just let tomorrow come. He is going golfing with his poppy on Sunday....he is four. He loves to do anything with his poppy and this is his surprise. He will probably like the golf cart more than the game. lol.
Well even though I have so much to do and so little time I hope to make the most of it this week. Come next weekend it will all be over and the let down will begin. We get so worked up over the holidays and then Wham, it is over and what is left? The clean-up. Yeah I know that is the bah humbug way of seeing it. I just can't seem to get in the spirit. I think it is because this holiday is not about the Reason any longer and more about what you can get for me this season. If we do something small we feel like we have failed, do something big and pay all year long. I guess i'm looking for the happy medium. A little something under the tree, a nice dinner, church on Christmas eve, and a big thank you for all that is and was done. I don't feel that is too much to ask this holiday season.
So to all my Spark friends out there......MERRY CHRISTMAS.......and lets give the NEW YEAR heck guys.
