I have a confession to make.

My head IS not in the game. I don’t know why, but I don’t like it. It has been this way for about a week, and I cannot shake it. It is a week until Christmas and I have so much to do, but I can’t get myself to get it done. The big kids are out of school, again, and I planned to finally finish their bulletin boards from last week. Sorry I haven’t posted that yet! :) Hopefully I can sneak in the laundry room and finish it.

I told the kids last night that I wouldn’t be sending goody bags to school for their Christmas party this year. I can’t get it together. I feel horrible. Nicholas said, “But mom that is our school tradition.” He understands, but it pains me. I’ve done it every holiday since 3 year old preschool…for both kids and this year I just can’t.

We make a homemade gingerbread house every year, and I’m trying to muster up the gusto to get that started.

I love Christmas decorations, snowmen especially. I have a growing collection of them. My whole house generally is spattered with Christmasy awesomeness…..not this year. We barely have our tree up, it doesn’t even have lights or an angel. And, I don’t even have one single solitaire snowman out, or my wreath for my front door.

What happened to my Christmas spirit this year…and my brain for that matter? Agh. If anyone knows how to shake this, please let me know!

Also…I’m going to kind of lay low for the rest of this week, and I will take off all week next week since the big kids are going to be home on break, and of course Christmas! My plan is to be back to me and be back to regular post on December 28th! I’ll be in and out moderating comments and looking at other blogs, and if I ever get around to it, I’ll post my frugal gift ideas.

Merry Christmas everyone!

It sounds like you just need a break and it just happened to fall at Christmas time. Just take some time for yourself and I’m sure you will start feeling back to normal.

Merry Christmas!!

I’m feeling ya right now. We don’t even have a tree yet. We just can’t seem to coordinate all of our schedules at the same time so we can go as a family and get one.

I also don’t have all of my Christmas decorations up yet. Same with the Christmas baking.

Not to mention my house is messy….I guess I’d better get off my derned behind and go clean and decorate and bake, lol! (Yeah, like that’s going to happen….)
