For the FIRST time in my ENTIRE life, I just cannot get it going to decorate for Christmas. In years past, I have usually gone OVER THE TOP! This year I have not EVEN gotten out ONE BOX of decorations. I don't have the desire, the want to or even the compulsion to conform.
Perhaps it is the fact that no one will be home for Christmas and I don't have any parties planned here. No-that has never stopped me in the past. We have had other Christmases with no kids or grands coming home. Perhaps it is the fact that BC-once again said, "Hire someone to decorate". For some strange reason, I always take this as an indication that my efforts are not up to par. I am not sure what the reason-but unless some miracle of attitude transformation occurs-there will be NO decorations here this year.
If you happen to LOVE decorating, and take pity on me----COME ON OVER-I could use a LOT of HELP!
I did go and volunteer today with my ESL student at one of the local elementary schools. She is PRECIOUS and SO wanting to do well. Now if I had her sweet little face to look at every day---there would be a tree up-just for her!
