Christmas Is Here and I’m Not Ready!

I’ve done the shopping and wrapped the gifts, but it still doesn’t feel like Christmas to me. I’ve been feeling this way for the last couple of years and can’t seem to get a grip on it. There’s no snow on the ground, but I’m okay with that. This year I didn’t even put up a tree. I’m not hosting Christmas this year and we aren’t having anyone over until the 29th, so why bother? If I put it up, I’m going to have to put it all away. I did get a wreath on the door and a Santa head hung outside, but that only happened last night. Beyond that, I just couldn’t or didn’t do it.

The nieces and nephews are grown and there just isn’t that pure and infectious excitement anymore. I don’t have kids of my own and if want to decorate, it falls upon me.

My goal is to try and figure out a way to bring the Christmas spirit back into our lives next year. I vow to do better.

I would love nothing more than to have you all share suggestions of things that help enrich your Christmas’ and your lives and maybe they can help enrich other’s lives as well. Even if you stumble upon this post in July, share your thoughts. There’s always another Christmas on the way!

Merry Christmas Everyone!


About Wrinkles and Flab and Hair! Oh My!

You may be wondering about my choice of blog name. Well, I’m a few years north of 40 and I thought I would surely be the exception… turns out I’m not. This blog is to address the good, the bad and the ugly of getting older and just the mundaneness of everyday life. The wrinkles have set in. The flab just appeared. And the hair…when, how and WHY did it start growing there?!?! I welcome all who want to read. Those over 40 that are going through or have gone through the same thing, I hope we can chat like sisters, laugh like friends and shed a tear or two if needed. Those who are under 40 and are curious to see what lies ahead, come take a look behind the pre-menopausal curtain. Any men that are interested in reading, I welcome you too. I must, however, warn you of the disillusionment that may lie ahead. Likely, in your eyes, it will be the undoing of the feminine mystique. We are here to support one another on this crazy journey and I welcome all feedback. I’ll start with my stories and I hope you chime in with yours! So, everyone hop aboard and let’s take this ride together and see where it leads!
