It's almost Christmas! I've been feeling Christmas-y for quite awhile now. Longer than I have for a long time - possibly since the excitement of childhood. I longed to have my tree up EVEN before December 1st and that's not the way I roll. I longed to listen to Christmas music before December arrived and that, too, is something strange - I think, actually, that working in retail for a few holiday seasons ruined Christmas music for me til now. Seriously, for the last many years, a few weeks was MORE than enough caroling for this girl. The problem I'm facing is that after so many weeks with the majority of the days spent feeling really quite brutal - my gumption may be at an all-time low. I am still excitedly waiting to see if THIS year, my dreams of family traditions come to fruition...but I'm a more sedated excited - from a reclining position on the floor or couch. I'm still not done the baking I wanted to do, nor are ALL my gifts completely done...and it's hard to muster up enough gumption finish. You'd think that could make a girl lose the Christmas spirit but, thankfully, I haven't yet. It's just slower going than I would truly appreciate. But, as they say, slow and steady wins the race....and there's always the Christmas chocolates I've slowly been stocking to raise activity levels. Right?
