It’s hard to get into the Christmas spirit this year. For one, I don’t even have a tree. Why bother? It’s not like I am going to buy a tree to put in my house for just me! And so the cats can knock it down like they did a few years ago. No thank you. Plus, I am never on that side of the house anyway to enjoy a tree! Even though I do have great ornaments packed away in the garage.
Secondly, most of my family is down south. And what family does live here in San Francisco are either one, going down South or two, have made other plans ON CHRISTMAS DAY! What nerve some people have! I decided not to go visit my family. Not because of money but because I thought I would be working during this time. But guess what? I am not! Now? Now, I just really don’t feel like being there. Even though I miss them dearly.
Thirdly, not that Christmas is about presents. But this year, my family decided on the “no gift exchange” policy EXCEPT for the twins and nephew. So much for opening presents this year. I think I will wait until after the Christmas ordeal and just go buy myself all the things I need and want.
Lastly, I was hoping I would be somewhere completely different with my life. It’s getting there but at a snails pace.
So on that note…I hope Santa puts coal in all your stockings!
