I remember when I used to put my Christmas decorations and tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving. Those were the good old days. Nowadays, I am usually trying to rest and clean up a bit after guests leave. I am janky because I woke up Sunday saying next weekend.
Y’all I don’t like going in my storage shed. When I went to start my container garden this spring/summer and I had to go in the shed, I opened that sucker up and it was raining damn lizards. You know I can’t deal with lizards. Mind you I open the door and jumped back but there was one too many lizards chilling in the frame of the door. Ugh! Did I mention the damn spiders too? I guess Saturday or Sunday I will get things out. Now you know I now have everything including the tree in plastic containers which are very secure, but the old fear of lizards is real. Sighing…
I also didn’t do any Black Friday shopping or Thanksgiving Day shopping. I know. It has been a decade or more since I not shopped. I am sticking to my budget because I want to pay off some bills. So shopping wasn’t on the agenda. I plan to give gifts to my nieces and I am making gifts again this year but I will remain on budget.
However, what is missing is the Christmas spirit the feeling of grace and family. I don’t want to go through the motions of Christmas, I want to feel Christmas in every fiber of my being. It is kinda hard because how things have gone this year, but I am determine to find the spirit that made me love Christmas from the time I was a child to an adult.
How is your Christmas spirit this year?
