That time of year again...

Well, this is Thanksgiving week. On Friday, the Christmas party season officially kicks off at work, and it's going to get very busy. As a result, I'm probably not going to be on much, except my days off. One good thing, at least this year my department is fully staffed, unlike last year, when one of my people had to take a medical leave of absence.

I don't want to even think about Christmas this year. I love the lights outside, my husband thinks he's Chevy Chase, we even have to watch the movie every year, but, I just can't get into the season for some reason. I couldn't wait for it and now I don't want it!! I hope you have fun though, AllenMI!

Try to squish in some fun between all the work hours.
We'll still be here when you get back.

It's taking me a while to get in the mood too Texas... but last night
I started thinking about chopping down our Christmas tree and all the decorations I'm going to put up. Maybe you're just getting a slow start.

Maybe once dh get's the outside lights up, I'll be better.
I'm gonna start a thread and get everyone to put pictures of their outside lights.

That's a great idea Texas. I'll have to take a photo of our neighbors though since Paul... refuses to put any on our house. Bah humbug!

Ah yes, 'tis the season, and all that stuff...

It reminds me of the line from the great documentary - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation...

"What can I say, except it's the holidays, and everyone's miserable..."

Good to hear from you ronjohn maybe I just am not reading all the posts. You looking forward to the holidays? AllenMI just remember this too shall pass. I am sorry but I don't feel very moody about the holidays. Especially when the weather starts to present problems. Looks great but when you have to shovel and try to get up and down driveway t hat's when I resent the holidays. Seems no one wants to be the one t o have all the family over t o their house. Guess t he cleaning up is bit much. So I usually st art to t hink how shameful I should be when the true meaning of giving makes me feel different. The little ones are the gifts of joy.
