Dreams To Do

‘Tis The Season?

Welp, Thanksgiving 2012 is officially over and I guess Christmas is upon us now. I’m not 100% sure how I feel about this yet. My Instagram feed has been over taken with photos of perfectly trimmed trees and Martha Stewart style fireplace mantles. While I’m usually jumping with joy over all things merry & bright right after Thanksgiving, this year I’m just not feeling ready yet. Bah humbug to me, I guess.

I did however get out ONE strand of Christmas lights after Leila asked me why we didn’t have any lights on our house yet.

I’m hoping that by next weekend (when my hubby is actually not working), I’ll get in the Christmas spirit and bust out the decorations. However, the past four days off from work have been spent doing a whole lotta nothing. I hardly touched my computer and phone. I only styled my hair once. I watched a good amount of TV. And all-in-all, I felt pretty dang pathetic. I think the dreary weather and short days are bringing me down more than usual this time of year. All I want to do is sleep, sleep, sleep. Sigh.

Here are a few pics from my lazy vacation…

I’m not gonna lie, my Thanksgiving actually kinda sucked. And then Andy had to work all weekend, so it was just me and the kiddos. The highlights, however, included an early evening solo trip to Target on Black Friday where I scored some awesome deals and it was no busier than usual, staying up late catching up on the DVR with my hubby, puzzle time with Leila Jade, and early morning snuggles with my little man. Despite the crap life throws our way sometimes, I can always rely on little happy moments to pull me along.

I hope you all had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving! I truly believe that by next weekend I will be embracing the Christmas spirit in full-force. Just gotta get back into the swing of things. 🙂

    While I did get my tree up, that’s about as far as I got. I agree that it didn’t feel quite right to start with Christmas already. However, I am already feeling the pressure of the holidays. With all that I will be doing in the coming weeks, the decorating is just one more thing on my list. Hoping for a little more motivation this week.

  • Minus the sucky Thanksgiving and black Friday shopping, this post sounds an awful lot like the one I’m working on 🙂 With an added bit of lazy–I didn’t even feel like finishing it up last night because The Walking Dead was on. All I did this weekend was get down our Elf on the Shelf and a Christmas wreath, and basically sat around on my ass the rest of the time. I’m with you on decorating next weekend though. It’s on!

  • Sorry to hear that you didn’t have a great Thanksgiving and then Andy was working all weekend! 🙁 At least you got a bit of lazy time in with the kiddos, making puzzles and catching up on the DVR. Lazy time is needed now and then!! Look forward to seeing your decorations next week! 🙂 

  • It sounds like we had similar weekends! Josh had Thanksgiving off but that was IT and I was home alone with Sky Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I was thankful to come back to work today…this time of year makes me depressed too. I think I need one of those sun lamps?

  • So good to know I’m not alone! I was seriously just looking at sun lamps on Amazon. I’m thinking I need one, too. 🙂

  • Oh, the lazy time felt SO good! I’m already feeling much better and more festive today, so Christmastime will be fully embraced soon. 🙂

  • Yes! I knew I wasn’t alone in this! I too busted out the Christmas wreath and that’s about it.

  • We’re in it together! I think we both just need to focus on simple Christmas cheer and not stress out about perfecting decorations and gifts and all that. That’s what I’m trying to focus on at least. 🙂
