catching the holiday spirit




i realize it takes me longer to get in the mood to celebrate the winter holidays the last couple of years. maybe because the children are older, i don't feel motivated to take on the physical work that goes with decorating the house. maybe, i don't want to do the same thing- because i feel i must. i do know, i get moments of incredible joy when i sit alone looking at the tree and memories come back from years ago....it just seems like a lot of work . maybe, i just need to complain a little before i kick it into gear! And i knew i should have gone out and bought the tree last week when it was mild and near 60...but today it's frigid and that option is gone. last night while i was out picking maya up from lacrosse practice, i was moved by the lights in our town. it is a special sight/sensation to see the downtown square lit up. today i noticed a small pond at someones home with this santa in a row boat. yes, i am getting in the spirit- in spite of myself....

i've been experiencing this same sensation the past few years...and i have a little one... i guess it just seems like SO MUCH work. by the time i get everything up it's time to take it down. i complain about people who get their xmas stuff up before thanksgiving but ya know i might just try that next year. maybe i need to take a lesson from you and drive around town and enjoy the lights sometime this weekend...maybe that will put me in the spirit...

You go girl! Enjoy the spirit. I myself am not there yet. I feel more like the Santa stranded in the boat...heading downstream with no paddles! :-)

"A lot of work" is what I was thinking too until I got in the spirit and now that the excitement is over I'm thinking "a lot of work" again.
