Day 18: The Countdown is On

I saw on twitter today that there’s only 13 days left in November, which will lead into the countdown to Christmas.

I’m not ready!

I’m not ready for the cold weather, and snow, and shoveling.

The malls and other stores are playing Christmas music.

I’m not ready!

Thanksgiving used to be my favorite holiday. I loved hosting for my family and my in-laws. Divorce changed that.

Christmas should get easier as my kids get older and I no longer have to pretend to be Santa. They’re at the ages that they can tell me (and their dad) what they want for Christmas. That’s the easy part. They still want the Christmas tree and decorations. That’s the not so easy part.

I tell myself that I’m going to try to get excited for the holiday. I ended up buying stuffing and a turkey this evening, as well as stockpiling cookie ingredients.

I can do this, right?
