I can not believe that it is the week before Christmas. I usually love Christmas. Seriously love it. I will start playing Christmas music in August. No, I'm not kidding just ask my sister! I decorate early and try to leave it up until February. I made it to the beginning of February one year and then Steven demanded that it come down! lol
This year? Nothin'. I am not feelin' it. I haven't played Christmas music. I have only put up the tree and that was grudgingly. No other decorations.
So, what is up? I don't know. I am just not looking forward to it. I know that I am in a bit of a funk and maybe that is it. I feel bad for the kids though.
When I said that we weren't going to put up the tree they each said, "That's okay mom, we don't have to have a tree this year." Talk about shaming me into it! We put it up. But let me tell you, there was no merriment while we were doing it.
I am going to get coal this year I just know it. And I deserve it.
Now, don't get me wrong. I love Jesus. I love that He came down as a precious baby and took on human flesh so that He could save us from our sins. I just don't want to celebrate the man-made holiday this year.
Maybe that's the problem. The commercialization of the holiday is driving me crazy. It is making me angry actually. I don't want to shop because I don't want to give my money to support the idea that you have to have all that stuff to be happy and celebrate Christ's birth.
ugh I have to stop talking about it. I am getting cranky all over again!
btw-I am not done Christmas shopping. Even though I don't want to 'have' Christmas the rest of my family does. Imagine that!
