A friend chided me just a bit this morning for not posting. I seem to have lost my Merry HoHoHo spirit and don't know where to find it! My cards are not yet mailed - and generally they are off & outta here during the first week of December. The presents remain unwrapped & un-mailed - New Year's gift's this year perhaps? Will my friends ever forgive me? The cookies are unbaked - though about perhaps but not in the oven! I am feeling thoroughly un-enthused, unmotivated & stupefied. It should be the complete opposite this year. We have snow on the ground, frigid temperatures & a generous wind chill component - & yet I sit, eyes slightly glazed, thinking, only thinking, of all of the things I should be doing. What I want to do is crawl into my warm bed & and have a sweet dream. What's with this? Where did my Merry HoHoHo spirit go? I simply can't find it anywhere. Not in the songs, or in the beauty of the snow, or in the cards, or in the icicles hanging from the roof. It's gone & I am fearful that I won't find it until after the holidays are over. Anyone else feel mired in Grinch-land too?
