I am a Christmas Curmudgeon this year.I think part of it stems from the fact that I have been crazy busy, and this is my first chance at 'down' time, whatever that might be. I have an idea I would like it - down time - ya know? The pace of life has become a tad unmanageable or is it just me? Is everyone spinning along with me?
So the Curmudgeon thing, what's up with that....
I haven't decorated.Now this (the lack of decoration) relates to the fact we were having work done on the house. It is hard to get whipped up about Christmas decorations when you have cases of wood planks covering the living room floor, when power tools are strewn throughout the dining room, when stencils supplies have over run other parts of the house and when all members of the household have tiny pieces of Mylar stuck to their shoes and fur. My husband is like the Pigpen character except instead of a cloud of dust, he is surrounded by a cloud of scrap Mylar.
Seriously.I am working on the house, room by room, compelled to get this done; ok, I am obsessive.
My office is finished - here are some snippets......
The Curmudgeon hasn't made Cookies.I always make cookies. Perhaps I will kick into gear next week? Grandma's Thumbprints are whispering to me.
The Curmudgeon has however bought gifts.Yes, I have managed to get that done, thank goodness for the Internet. As much as I prefer to support local stores, I simply didn't have time for 'the hunt.' It was easier and quicker to do a quick search and the ole One Click.
How are all of you doing this Christmas?
Any other Curmudgeons out there?
