I really wasn’t thrilled with the idea of Christmas. Doesn’t always work out, but today it went rather smoothly for a change. 1st. one of my hubster’s friends called in which worked out supper for his temperament. The food was done well and on the table just after the family finished opening their gifts. Everyone was happy with what they got so that too went smooth. The best part was that it was family, in great spirits and very happy. Thank Goddess for rare favors!
It is December already and only one snow fall! Sure it has lasted almost a week, but the temps are heading back to the low 50’s! I know this has happened before in the area’s history (even the unrecorded one) so don’t start pulling the “Global warming” card on me. I am just saying that I moved here because of the cooler weather and snow. But what do I know about it? It is just a part of the season’s happenings and I WAS hoping we would get snow on both the 14th and 21st! Sigh … Just another crazy day in paradise.
There are times when one has to think … Is this all worth it? Not trying to be cynical or even glib, but this is one of those days in the holiday season when I have to wonder why I am doing anything for the season. Now don’t get me wrong, I happen to like decorating, festive music and the like but when ideas fall short and money is super non existent and family doesn’t even try but expect you to carry the brunt of everything I ask you … Is it all worth it?!?!?!
