Wrapping Presents and other Musings

To say I've been a bit of a scrooge this year might be an understatement. This has been an extremely trying year for my family and I've taken it pretty hard... harder than most of the family I think. I wish I knew why... but I don't. I keep praying for help in understanding. I know things that have happened in the past, now looking back was the best thing that happened, but still...

Anyway usually I'm extremely excited to put the Christmas tree up and I was. I really wanted baby girl to be a part of it but there were other plans... like nap time. I was frustrated. Oh well... life happens, right?

So then I've been putting off wrapping presents. Christmas is my favorite time of year but it comes and goes so fast and then you have to wait a whole year for it to come back around. Oh Christmas, where are you? Can you believe it'll be here next week? NEXT WEEK! So I've been putting off wrapping presents hoping I could push it off and keep it going. Hoping I could gain my Christmas spirit I usually have, but I guess I've come to the reality that Christmas is coming and I better get a move on with the wrapping of the presents.

Ok one question... So how old does a kid have to be before there are no more Santa presents?


  1. I think Christmas came so fast this year it was harder to get in the Christmas spirit. We put our tree up in the beginning of November too and it still feels like it's coming so quickly! I hope things get better for you and your family I understand how everyone goes through hard times this time of year and throughout. My best wishes for you and your family! Merry Christmas!

  2. I'm sorry that you have been in a bit of a downer mood. I didn't get into the holiday cheer as much as I usually am, so this year is a little off for me too. I don't feel like it should already be Christmas -- it came so fast this year! I hope that things start looking up for you. I just finished wrapping the last of our presents today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Good question. When you find out let me know. I'm thinking this may be our last year of "Santa presents". I feel quite certain that the youngest knows, but well hell lets keep it going one more year.

    I have almost no xmas spirit either. sigh. Let's hope we find some in the next - say 5 days or so.
    Have a good one :)
