Two days until Christmas. If I am being honest, I really don’t give a shit this year. This is not normal for me as I have always loved the season around Christmas. The lights, the baking, the music, everything. This year, I feel like we didn’t have birthdays, Easter, a summer, Labor Day, we barely had a Thanksgiving and this is not Christmas!
My husband lost his mother this year, I lost a close cousin, our two cats passed away this year, I lost my disability insurance this year and we are both having health issues. Billy pulled a tendon in his shoulder and is having a miserable time of it. He is no the kind of person to rest his shoulder so when he does take some time out to ice it or heat it, he climbs the walls. As far as I’m concerned, 2020 can kiss my ass!
Now, we will have the kids and grandkids for dinner on Christmas day and I am looking forward to that. It just seems as though Christmas never really showed up this year. We are just going through the motions. Not watching Elf, or Scrooge, a Charlie Brown Christmas, not even Rudolf. It just isn’t Christmas. I will take the Christmas tree and all the decorations down earlier, not leaving them up until New Years Eve this year.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! BUT, as far as I’m concerned, it’s “Ho, ho, humbug”!
