This year as well as last year, the holidays just didn’t seem right. I’m not really in the festive spirit and I’m not ready for Christmas at all. We have people coming over for Christmas and the house is an absolute mess. I still have work this week and I haven’t finish wrapping presents yet.
It’s a rather stressful time of the year which isn’t what Christmas used to be. Christmas used to be fun, but over the years, I’ve become the grinch. I just want to be left alone so I can relax. Instead, it’s filled with activities that make me even more exhausted.
I usually spend a lot of time curating the perfect gifts for everyone, but this year, I didn’t get to do that. It was gift card for most people and for others, I just had to chip in for something someone else paid for upfront. This takes the joy out of Christmas shopping because I normally put a lot of thought into gifts because I like seeing people’s faces light up when they receive something they like.
The one thing that I am looking forward to though is being with the little kids. I have more nieces and nephews now and they are toddlers. If you know anything about me, it’s that I love babies and toddlers and have had baby fever for quite some time now.
But I’ll keep this short as there is still a lot to do.￼
