I have to admit that I have been swinging back and forth between the two emotions.
Yesterday as I began to drag out the Christmas decorations from the garage I was feeling decidedly on the bah humbug side of things.
There is just soooo much to weed through, and we need to donate a lot of it, but we have to see what mom wants for her apartment first. Then I will have to lug it over there and put it all up for her, as well as decorating here.
That is where the bah humbug was starting to kick in. It seemed overwhelming, but then I thought about how much my mom loves Christmas and how she may not have too many left, so I decided that a little ho! ho! ho! would be better.
I thought a little inspiration would help and where better to find it than a wonderful shop here in Lexington called For Friends. It was like stepping into a beautiful Christmas wonderland. I didn't come away with anything other than ideas (although sister got the square Santa pillow and a matching snowman one), but there was more of a Christmas spring in my step when I left there.
When I got home I turned on a Christmas CD (The Riga Boys Choir, my favorite), brewed myself a cup of tea, and did some Christmas dreaming.
So how are you feeling about the decorating process. Is it bah humbug or more of a ho! ho! ho!
