I am skipping Christmas. Call me the grinch, but I am boycotting. No Christmas. No tree. No decorations. No Santa Claus. Oh wait, Santa's still downstairs from last year. Nevermind. There will be Santa. I might even dust him off. And maybe stockings if they happen to be in the top 2 or maybe even 3 boxes in the closet. But seriously that's all I am committing to.
It hit me like a lightening rod this week that despite the fact the calendar shows something like 6 weeks between now and Christmas it's an utter fantasy. In reality with everything going on there's something like 9 days left. Holy cow. 9 days?!?! How do these things keep sneaking up on me??
