This month I’ve been blogging five years and in all that time I’ve never hit a blogger’s block like I have since just before Thanksgiving….like my title says “I’m just not feelin’ it”! this year. We had a death in the family the night before Thanksgiving, I’ve been having some health problems and then last week my daughter had a health scare…fortunately it seems like we’re both on the road to better health.
I’ve done very little, almost none, Christmas decorating this year. I have two rooms full of stuff down from the attic but every time I look at it, I just get frustrated so I do nothing. I set up a little hot chocolate bar in the kitchen (which I plan to share soon), put a lighted garland on the mantle in the den and a simple vignette in the dining room. Not sure what’s wrong but I just don’t feel like doing anything. However, I have really enjoyed seeing all the beautiful decorations all of ya’ll are sharing.
We’re supposed to leave for the beach Christmas Day with my sister and her husband but I keep going back and forth on that too. If we don’t go with them, we are planning on a little trip to the beach for New Years like we did last year.
Our family Christmas will be at the lake (like every year) on the 22nd and I still haven’t bought the grandkids presents to take to the lake. Those are usually silly, inexpensive little presents and then they get the “big” gifts from Mimi and Pop on Christmas Day.
Last week I got my Christmas present from my husband which was having my plate rack in the kitchen rebuilt for the 3rd time! Seems like the first two times just didn’t work for me so our friend Scott (who I call Chris…inside joke) does all my Honey-Do projects and he did a bang up job. I will share that too…maybe after the holidays and things settle down a bit. Whenever I need Scott to do something for me, I always e-mail him with the reference being “401-k project”…my husband says he is funding Scott’s 401-k with all the things I keep adding to my list!
I hope to get my “groove” back and start blogging again soon….in the meantime I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!
