Operation: Get your @SS ready....Day 6
Here it is November 14th and I'm not in the mood. Usually...Christmas Spirit grips me all through the year but I've lost my Holiday MoJo and I don't know what to do to get it back.
I know that part of the reason...is that my mind set has changed a little bit. I'm not interested in getting my kids a ton of presents....and my family couldn't agree on weather of not we were going to draw names or not. Then Scrooge got involved and told everyone that they were getting family gifts from us.
That's all well and good...except that he won't DEFINE what the hell that means so I still don't have a clue what we are getting everyone. When I see something I think would be cool he says no. It makes it hard to get excited.
And the kids...I really just want to get them one or two things. We need to plan a time to go shopping for them...together. I think once I shop for them and we go visit santa...I'll feel better.
One change from every other year....we will be home for Christmas with NO FAMILY (except Bobbi) with us. Let me tell you...this is a relief. I'm looking forward to being able to prepare WAY less food, and actually concentrate on my children instead of running a hotel and restaurant. It's a lot of work having guests in your home and it will be a refreshing change to not have to deal with that.
I hope the spirit finds me soon.....
In other news, we got the kids' hair cut this morning and when I asked Mallory how she wanted her hair, she said, 'like your's Mommy.' And so we did! She was so good sitting in the chair and she had her first blow dry!
Isn't she darling?
I'm so excited....because I'm meeting a bunch of bloggers for dinner in a little bit. And I get to meet Loralee's baby boy!
