Bah Humbug

I've decided there will be no Christmas this year.

I had my heart set on being in the new house by Christmas. And I just don't have confidence that it will happen. Everything takes so long.

I refuse to make the effort to decorate the old house when I don't even want to be living there anymore. Yesterday I bought one of the houses for our Christmas village, but only because I was too embarrassed to put just two foam paint brushes on my credit card while at the small hardware store. I set it up when I got home, and unless we get moved before the 25th, that will be the extent of my holiday spirit.

I am listening to Christmas carols on the radio in the car because I love them.

And as far as gifts go, I've done my best to inform people that this year the offerings will be meager at best.

All I want for Christmas is to celebrate it in my new house.

The most frustrating parts, I'm sure, are those that are out of your hands. I hope it gets done in time, against all odds.

I too hope that against all odds, it does get done in time. I'm sorry for my contributing to the slowing aspects of it, I certainly didn't do it to hurt you!!!

I'd like to celebrate Christmas here by getting some of the boxes out of the livingroom, but that certainly does not seem to be happening. Nowhere to put anything and company this weekend!

I do hope you make it.
