With ma's death, it has really been hard for me to try and get into the holiday spirit. It wouldn't bother me one bit to just skip it altogether. However, I have to attempt it for the kids.
Here is me attempting it last weekend - I pulled the tree out of the box, stacked and fluffed. No ornaments adorn the tree, just the lights that already came on it. I had to tell Hoss that the tree just wont be decorated this year - he seems fine with that.
Then Last Friday when hubs comes home telling me he is fired. FIRED at Christmas time...well isn't that the icing on the cake!
I'd much rather put the tree back in its box and back down in the basement and put a pole up in its place...Happy Festivus!
