I think November and December are the busiest months of the year for me.

It all starts with chocolates, of course, at the beginning of November.

Then we have Thanksgiving (3 for us...and you wonder why I'm so fat!)

Then we have four hundred Christmas Parties (no hyperbole.)

When you're in charge of doin' stuff, stuff sucks.

I miss the good ol' days when I just had to show up, be given a present, and give whatever present my parents bought for me to give.

I'm really missing the Spirit of Christmas.  Can you pick that up at the WalMart?  Or shoot, I'll even drive out to Target.

I tried last night to live vicariously through the sweetness of a childs innocence...but I picked the wrong child.  Kembry was absolutely horrible last night as we tried to talk about what Christmas is realllllly about.  She ended up in bed screaming, after attempts at time-outs and other more positive reinforcement ideas that all failed.

My Christmas tree is only half-way up, there are no lights on my house, and I'm JUST NOT FEELIN' IT!

Send help immediately.  I'm the one hiding in the Sterilite Christmas decorations storage box sucking my thumb and eating a box of cookies.  (Not at the same time.  That would be bloody.)

You know what you need? I nice warm fuzzy Gingerbread latte. If you don't do it for Christmas do it for your hips...I mean lips.
Sometimes it is hard to get that jolly all up in your soul. It's ok to not feel all perky like the Christmas songs tell us we should be.
Give it time and a latte.

Who cares if you don't get the stuff done outside. Concentrate on the inside -- what your kids will be able to enjoy the most. And what's inside your heart, too. Remember that it's not about the lights or the tree or the food or presents -- it's about celebrating a birthday. If all the details don't get finished, that's fine... it's about the birthday, not the stuff around it.
