Christmas is almost here!! Santa Claus is coming! I’m so excited! Can’t you tell by all the exclamation points?! But no really, I’m more in the spirit than I thought I would be. I was assuming I would be a Scrooge, considering it will be my first Christmas away from my family. I do get those mopey moments, thinking about the fact that I won’t be able to watch my niece and nephews open presents, as I have every year since Carson was a baby. I worry about my mom being alone for Christmas in a rehabilitation center. This is the first Christmas we will all be separated. It hurts.
But I guess as you grow up, and start living your life, that’s what happens. You can’t always have your family around you. I suppose I got kind of spoiled. I spent my first 25 years with my siblings either in my home or just down the street. Not everyone has it that good.
Another reason not to be a Scrooge, is that this is my first Christmas with Chris!! We are last minute type of people, so we’re just now getting the decorations up. Next year we’ll have to do better, because I hate having to take them down so soon after just putting them up. But oh well, we will probably end up leaving them up til mid January, since we will likely be last minute about that too. But oh well, better late than never. I’m determined to make this a really good Christmas. And I think we have that covered. I didn’t have a massive amount of funds, but I found a few gifts for Chris that I think he will love. Or atleast kinda like!
I hope you all have a merry Christmas too.
