i usually adore this time of year (wait ... i still do - i'll explain) - i'm one of those people who go a little OCD/ADD and decorate every nook and cranny - take strolls around NYC and take in the windows and lights of the city - ice skating is always a must - rides around the neighborhood to see who out done themselves this year - driving myself insane trying to find the 'perfect' gift for everyone - Christmas outfit all set and ready to go - dinner menu evolving by the moment - ect.
this year for me, well it just isn't the same - since Sandy hit, my families health struggles, and everything else on top of that - my heart is heavy, saddened, and feels lost - i just haven't seemed to 'jump into the spirit' of things - i'm pretty 'blah' about it all this year - i don't even have 1 thing on my Christmas list - as a mater of fact, i don't even have a list this year - that's how 'blah' about it all i am - all i want is health and happiness for all i love - that's it - seems fair enough, right? - but one thing i have been doing, keeping with tradition, is watching all the Christmas movies *love* - it's not like i'm Miss Scrooge over here or anything - i'm still in love with this 'time of the year'!
How's 'this time of year' treating you? - enjoying it? - hate it? - wish it lasted forever? - can't wait to get it over with?
