Christmas spirit?

I can’t say that I’ve found myself in the Christmas spirit this year. The weather sucks. I haven’t been feeling well. Things just aren’t going smoothly. I haven’t done cards, I haven’t baked any cookies. I just can’t seem to get things done.

I was out on Friday night and got a text from Zach that we had a major problem–the Christmas tree had fallen down. Luckily only four ornaments broke, but what a pain. Two of Zach’s friends came over to help fix it yesterday. Its currently tied to two cinder blocks to keep it from falling. Its a redneck Christmas y’all! At least the blocks are hidden behind the tree. I had to redecorate it after that. I got no pleasure out of it. It felt like a chore. Well, I guess it really was. You don’t expect your tree to fall and need to be redecorated.

My shopping is pretty much done and wrapped. I’d still like to go to the mall just because. Maybe the mall all decorated for Christmas would cheer me up. Zach’s already been half a dozen times on his own. I was planning on going tomorrow but now I need to try to go to the doctor. I’ve had chest congestion for about a month now and its just not going away, its getting worse. If I had insurance I would have gone to the emergency room today because I could barely breathe.

I hope things are going better for you guys. I hope you’re enjoying your holiday season.

  1. I’m having a hard time getting into the spirit, too. I’ve mailed 5 cards – that’s all I’ve had the energy or interest to do. I’m getting shopping done, but it’s begrudgingly.

    Hope you feel better soon.


  2. I hope you are better, heather. A lack of insurance is teh suckage but know that Publix will fill your antibiotic and some other med prescriptions for free (I think Paxil, for one).
    I understand the lack of Christmas joy. I still don’t have my tree up but will try to get itup this weekend……
