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.
