I probably shouldn't be blogging right now due to my very crummy mood. I guess I just need to get some things off my chest. Sorry, you will be my sounding board.
This weekend we celebrated my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. It went well after much work to make it just the perfect party for them. So I promised the kids that after the party I would decorate for Christmas. The problem is... I CAN'T FIND ANYTHING!
I think, "I will begin with doing this." So I start going through my Christmas boxes and can't find what I need. I move on to another idea and the same darn thing happens! I have looked everywhere! For example, I can't find my stocking holders to hang my stockings! I hate when I can't find something! Hate is actually an understatement!!!! Therefore, I am giving up! You don't have to decorate to have Christmas. Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Christ. He was born in a manger. What a very simple and humble place to be born. I say, who needs decorations!
The kids will be disappointed and whine. Then I will feel like I have failed as a mom. I know the little things are the big things, but lots of little things, like decorations, ADD UP to one HUGE task!!!!! I don't like feeling this pressure. I don't like feeling this way over something that is supposed to be a happy time.
