Bah Humbug

Yep, I am annoyed. What is going on with you crazies having all of your Christmas decorations up and playing your holiday music, making new traditions......I don't like you. I am being such a scrooge, I know. I need to snap out of it, truly I do. I know it isn't your fault that I cannot motivate myself to do anything related to getting ready for Christmas, its the post Thanksgiving blues. And now I'm hungry. Or maybe, I am just scared to face the garage. Why the garage? That is where I store most of the holiday decorations. You see, over the course of the year, every once in awhile I will catch Johnny coming out of the garage with half of a decoration or an ornament that he has mutilated or broken somehow. It could be just the head of a Nutcracker, or an antler from what once was cute reindeer decoration, or maybe what was a sweet angel ornament that now is just a halo. So partly I think I 'm afraid to see the conditions of the decorations themselves, it could be a very scary Christmas with a one-eyed Santa and an elf with no legs. I don't know why he wants to destroy them, but he carries them, or pieces of them, around while singing sweetly (ho, ho, ho who wouldn't go, or It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, or sometimes even Up on the housetop) so he is obviously in the spirit. Yep, it's clear I am afraid of what I am going to find down there. Or it could be that I am so freakin' lazy that my sister walked in my house two days ago and took down a Trick or Treat sign. Ugh. Hold on, someone is at the door. Perfect, more presents I ordered that I now have to wrap. OK now that I am up, I will venture down to the garage and report back in a sec. Well, I guess it's not that bad, most of it I have to get rid of anyway because well you know. Basically it just looks like a ton of work in there, which is why I generally try and stay out of the basement/garage (laundry, spiders, all things bad).

Don't you feel better about yourself now? You are welcome, I'm here for ya. Oh I know what you are thinking-my kids need a good mom for Christmas. I am accepting only full time applications. Anyway, thanks for listening to that rant. I think I am to go make some hot chocolate and try and get in the mood. Just kidding, no I'm not.
