Since Christmas is less than a week away, I thought I would share a little Christmas confession with you. I have been The Grinch this year. I haven't always been this way. When I was younger, I LOVED Christmas. I seriously started getting excited about it in September. I watched tons of Christmas movies, listened to lots of Christmas music, went to see lights …
But the last few years, it has been harder and harder for me to get in the Christmas spirit. To be honest, this time of year is really hard on me. Ever since the hubs started law school, December has been a time that I dread because of exams. His stress level is so high, and I really just try to stay out of the way.
I feel like Charlie Brown in A Charlie Brown Christmas (my favorite). Oddly enough, I've always sort of identified with Charlie Brown. I haven't done any Christmas shopping, or listened to Christmas music, or watched Christmas movies. I don't even know what I am going to get for anyone. I wouldn't have minded skipping it all together this year.
I did put up a few decorations. I have a tiny tree that my mom sent me last year. I hung our stockings, and I did a little bit of decorating on my bar cart. But that is it.
That is the extent of my Christmas-ness. This weekend, I will be rushing around, trying to figure out gifts for everyone before we leave to go home Tuesday night… Fighting the crowds is probably not going to put me in the holly jolly mood either.
So what about you? Have you been more Buddy the Elf or The Grinch this year?
Have a good weekend!
