The Spirit of the Season

To be perfectly honest, I've had a hard time getting into the spirit of things this season. Maybe it's the fact that it was seventy degrees here last week, maybe it's the fact that I was practically done shopping in October, perhaps it's the fact that I haven't had the energy (or time) to do any baking this year, or maybe it has something to do with the fact that we'll be at school until December 21. Oof. Whatever the reason, I've been feeling a bit Scrooge-ish this season.

I've tried to fight it by blasting Christmas music whenever we're home (and even when we're not. The princess listens to it while we're at work. Pathetic, I know). We light up the Christmas tree as soon as it gets dark. We've even started watching Christmas movies, though that's more for my benefit than my sweet hubby's. Needless to say, I'm still struggling.

I think all I really need is some downtime. A little R&R with David and Daisy by the fire and I'll be back into the groove. Until I can get that I'll be blasting Christmas music in my classroom, eating candy canes, and giggling at these ecards to get into the mood!

This is my husband. . .

  1. I've felt a little Scrooge-like this year too. I'm blaming it on the 80 degree weather here but I hope it goes away soon.
