Okay, after PM's wonderful post yesterday I had wanted to be steeped in the Christmas spirit, post something profound and spiritual. But it ain't gonna happen. I've been staring at the screen (my head pounding) and have erased several spewing rants (because I didn't want to infect anyone else with my bah humbug mood). I know the exact cause of my emotional downturn - I spent yesterday with a very sick child (who seems much better today), am now fighting off my own cold and sinus headache, and have filled the last week with family...issues. Thank God I haven't had to brave the malls. Someone would probably have lost their head - and I don't mean me.
I hate feeling this way. Heck, I'm usually complaining about people like me at the holidays. And finding myself as THAT PERSON is really annoying me (just one more thing :-). So, in an effort to purge this feeling and get back to the true meaning of the season (and hopefully find my normally cheerful, optimistic attitude) I'm going to list one pet peeve of the season and then one thing I love the most. Hopefully it'll remind me what to embrace and what to let go.
Feel free to join me!
Pet Peeve - having to share this holiday season with family who don't understand the true meaning of Christmas
Love - Singing carols with my girls (not to mention listening to my 18 month old try to sing) while driving around with them and my husband looking at Christmas lights.
Now that's a happy thought I can get behind :-)
May Santa bring what your heart desires and the New Year find you prosperous.
