‘Tis the season.

Christmas is right around the corner and even though I do love this time of year I’ve not really been in the holiday spirits. Have I been drinking spirits? Yes. I thought being in our own home this year would really get me excited for the holidays and it has, but even with 6 inches of snow on the ground it doesn’t feel like Christmas is a few weeks away.

Maybe it’s because I didn’t fight the holiday crowd this year and chose to do all of my shopping from the comfort of my own home.

Thursday with all of the ice coming down she waddled up to my house carrying 5 packages one pressed between her shoulder and chin.

Or maybe it’s because I’m starting to feeling those winter blues creep in and I hate it. I feel like I’ve got minimal patience with my family, my kids, my poor husband and I’m not doing anything well. I’m just doing a whole bunch of things half-assed.

I’m going to start doing some homework in a minute….bleh!

This really gets me in the Christmas spirit! I bought a brownie mix to make later on for dessert. Mmmmm I love the cold…but only when I can stay inside in my pajamas on the couch.
