The Grinch

I should be doing everything but blogging right now.  I have this (never ending) stats assignment to finish, emails to return, a flat to clean; dozens of other things I’m sure.  Right now, all I can think about is how not into Christmas I am this year.

I’m just not.  Our Christmas tree still has no lights, and sits sadly by the window.  I haven’t bought one present yet, and I’m only sending cards to my nieces.  I don’t know why, but I am just so not into the holiday spirit.  Maybe it’s the lack of festive lights/trees/etc in my area.  Maybe it’s the lack of cheer I experience when I’m out in the world.  Maybe it’s the fact that I have 100 things to do and none of them are holiday related.  Maybe it’s the constant pain I’m in.  Maybe I’m just getting old.  I don’t know.

I really should be more excited about Christmas.  For once, I am not stressed to the max about money right now.  Usually a month before I get my next loan payment I’m counting pennies.  Despite getting off on the wrong foot in September, I’m not freaking out over how I’m going to eat the first 2 weeks of January.  I can buy presents.  I can drink all the lattes.  But something is missing, and I just feel like the bloody Grinch.

Maybe I just need some vitamin D?

Hopefully I will feel more holiday inspired once this assignment is complete.

I can hope.
