Bah Humbug

I'm a Grinch!  Yes, for some reason my heart is two sizes too small this Chrustmas season.  It's really much more ambivalent than disliking Christmas. 

I have no desire to decorate-we have none put up yet, and have decided not to put up the tree more because of two run amucks (anyone else think of Hocus Pocus when you hear the work amuck-ok, I'll stop mixing seasons). Our plan is to decorate the mantle and put the aluminum tree in S's room. And I really need to get on this. I'm pretty sure M would let it slide and S doesn't seem to notice. Honestly, I'm so close to just handing over the presents this year.

Tomorrow is our special musical service at church. It'll be the 1 year anniversary of F & C's baptism. And we are going to the special music performance at my in-laws church tomorrow night. A said she wanted to see Christmas lights next Saturday, so we will do that. Maybe I can even talk M into going by Starbucks for a hot chocolate treat. Hopefully by then I will be in a better Christmas mood.

  1. I have had so many posts like this on my blog over the years since parenthood. The whole season can be so busy and complicated and demanding and frustrating, and when you have more than one child it just drains you. I say all of that to say that I hear you and I understand. Thankfully even on years (yes, plural) like this, I have found my moment on my favorite of all the holiday hub-bub--Christmas Eve, and by Christmas morning I was in a wonderful place to share with my immediate family. I will pray that you can find that this year. We could all stand a few extra prayers this time of year and all months long!
