Fake It Til I Make It

My winter wreath is missing along with my Christmas Spirit. Are they in kahoots? 

I'm in disbelief that Thanksgiving is over. I need more time before thrusted into lights, garland, and presents. 

I want to want to be ready for Christmas. From the outside I'm there. Trees have been decorated, the lights are up outside, the UPS man stops daily to deliver packages, and we've been singing carols for weeks.'s a secret...I've been faking.  

Decorating the house seemed like a chore. I opened the decoration boxes with the "just get it over with" attitude. Every year I look forward to sending cards out and this year? I think taking a year off sounds like a better idea.                                                      

I know that I'm feeling this way because of how busy life is right now. I'm sure I'll be singing another tune (Rudolph perhaps?) soon when there's less on my plate. I even feel better after writing this!

That takes care of my Spirit but my wreath? No leads on that case yet. 

I'll let you know if either turn up.

This is my favorite time of year. I'm ready to start enjoying it.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Anyone else feeling the same way?

    I agree next week is December.


  3. In my opinion, I think it means you just need to go out somewhere that screams the holidays to you (for me that is Disneyland).

    This year we aren't decorating or anything because of the pregnancy. It feels a little weird because I love the holidays so much, but I just look at other's lights and that makes me happy. ^_^

    Don't stress yourself out. Do what you can and let others or elves do the rest. ^_^

  4. I still haven't decorated. I think I'm denial at how close Christmas actually is.

  5. Thanks Trina and Shell! I'm in it now and finally excited. Everybody works on their own timeframe, don't feel bad if you're not there Shell!
