The calendar says that today is the 5th of December and to me that is total and complete craziness.
I'm still dreaming of leaves and campfires and pumpkin spice lattes... but that's over for this year I hear.
Because it's totally November 5th to me.
But it's not and I am in total denial that the Christmas season is really here.
Every year I have a super tough time getting into the Christmas spirit... I can't just turn it on automatically on December 1 like
I feel most everyone else can. I really, really wish I could though.
This is one time when I really wish I was like everyone else.
Not that this is my total excuse because like I said, this is just me, but this year especially with my dad's stroke and hospital stay
pretty much being the entire focus for the month of November it is just extra tough making myself get into the "spirit".
My goal for this weekend(for Sunday because Saturday is full) is to get a little Christmas tree and get out the decorations.
I'm doing it.
I have to do it because there's only 2 more weekends after this weekend until Christmas.
So this Sunday I will do it.
I will put on the holiday music and make hot cocoa and get out
We will get a tree but it probably won't be a huge expensive tree because it won't be up too long anyway at this point-- BUT --
we will get one and I will force myself to feel as Christmasy as I can.
And then I will promise myself that next year will be different and I won't feel this way next year and next year I will be a
completely different person...
And I don't really believe that, but a girl can dream. Right?
/// Happy Weekend, friends. ///
