I Am Not in a Holiday Mood and I am Venting.

Friday, December 17, 2010

I spent November away and on vacation. The weather was beautiful and it was relaxing and fun. Now that December is here, I am home, where it is cold and gray. My house is in disorder with redecorating going on and things out of place everywhere. I am not putting up a Christmas tree or decorating the house for the holidays because I don't have the room for any more clutter right now.

We are going to no parties. We are not having friends over. I am not shopping for gifts, and have opted to give money to my adult children, who can really use it. My daughter can't come home for Christmas this year, and my son has to work on that day. My sister's husband just found out that he has cancer, and she is stressed.

But I will cook a nice meal for my husband and me and we will enjoy looking at the snow outside the window as we sit by the fire.

So it does not seem like a holiday season. Maybe that is good, because there will probably be no post-holiday let down. (Hope I am right and do not feel later that I missed out.) I need to buy some nice herbals teas and drink it while taking a relaxing bath while listening to music. That always makes me feel good. I DO NOT DARE BAKE COOKIES, BECAUSE I WILL DEVOUR THEM ALL RIGHT NOW AND REGRET IT LATER.

I do resolve to have a great 2011. Just haven't figured how yet.

  There's nothing wrong with not involving yourself in all the materialism and commercialism that unfortunately pervades this time of year. That's not what Christmas is supposed to be about. Spend time with your family and loved ones. Do what's right for you. That is very important. You and your family are worth it.

    I, too, am not in a holiday mood - while my situation is not exactly the same as yours, there are some similarities, and bottom line is - I really don't care about any of the social conventions now (and perhaps ever again at my stage in life)......please know that you are not alone in your feelings and that there are others around you, including your fellow Sparkers, who understand and care!

    Hope it helped venting.. Take one day at a time, do the best you can and keep giving Mr Adversity the middle finger.. At some stage he will go prey on someone else, just now try to keep charma. I make fun of adversity, it helps keep a cheerful disposition when all the cards are against me. I mom to 2 ADHD'ers and have a friend with ADD, crap happens to us all the time- refuse to sit down and cry- fight back! emoticon
