I'm on day 5 of the antibiotics and am feeling better, but not all the way. The doctor says to call on Friday if I don't hit 100% by then so she can extend the medicine timetable. It will be so nice to feel better.
Christmas is coming and I'm not yet ready. What will Santa bring the children this year? I also haven't planned a time for Santa pictures and I think we missed them last year too. Big deal or not?
The children have 1.5 weeks of school left before the two weeks of holiday vacation. Husband only gets one week off. His office closes for the time between Christmas and New Year.
Tomorrow we're planning on making cookies.
I'm still looking for that excitement that Christmas is supposed to bring.
Is it growing up so much that the stuff under the tree isn't the big surprise/thrill it once was? Is it that everything under the tree is money from something else and as the money-management for the house it's easier to worry than get excited? Is it because the best presents are for the children, not the adults? Is it the arguments over whose house must be visited at what time and the lack of choice we feel we have?
What about you? How's your Christmas looking? --Or whichever holiday you celebrate at this time of year. Not meaning to be rude about the religions and holidays. I celebrate the commercial Christmas with the jolly bearded man and the presents rather than the Christian Christmas with the.... uhm, martyred bearded man and the cross, so sometimes I forget that Christmas isn't an everyone holiday -- like Valentines day.
But how are your holidays looking?
