At the risk of sounding like a grinch, I’m not going to go into too much detail but it was nice to see that costco has finally removed the christmas stuff and moved on to the next ….. I’m not a lover of the Christmas season I could write a very long post about why I feel this way but I was taught when you can’t say anything nice you should just say nothing. Lets just say Christmas and I could do without each other. Having said that I try to put on a happy face and create wonderful memories for my kids. But really, and I don’t know if all mothers feel this way. It’s a no win situation for me at first I feel like I’ve done too much, then I feel guilty that I haven’t done enough, and it all just seem really silly.
Then we move onto the diet and exercise portion of the guilt. It’s Christmas I should be able to eat everything in sight, I am celebrating… Then the guilt of OH I LOATH myself for eating everything in sight. Why just because it’s the “holidays” should I eat differently? I didn’t enjoy that bacon for breakfast. It made me feel sick and sluggish all day long, but I ate it because it’s the “holidays”…… Ugg, I said I wasn’t going to go there didn’t I.
Anyway I look forward to the end of the “holidays” back to eating right, a normal routine, the start of days getting longer and a clean Christmas free decorated house, all the dusty tacky christmas ornaments safely hidden under the basement stairs for another year…. or two…. Every year I say this but it would be nice to simplify christmas and go away…. maybe next year will be the year.
