Re: Post-Christmas blues....

I feel the opposite of the blues...I feel a great inner joy that life will soon be normal - where I will not be surrounded by all of the holiday BS.

Re: Post-Christmas blues....

I always get after Christmas let-down.  Why -- who knows?  It's just to me a very special day of the year and I want the feeling to last forever.  I guess it's the part of me that just never grew up!  That kind of magical feeling you have when you're a kid!  And after the day is over, then there is just the long, cold, long winter months --- and a long time before spring comes!

Re: Post-Christmas blues....

I'd like to skip the month of December. Christmas triggers my PTSD since the 2 crimes were on Christmas but decades apart.

 

I woke up on the 26th feeling like myself again.

Buck up people!!!!

 

 

Here are some happy thoughts!!!

 

THE DAYS ARE GETTING LONGER THANK GOODNESS!!!! ( only a few minutes so far, but suddenly you'll begin to notice that it IS lighter at the end of the day, for longer!!!

 

Seed catalogs will soon be out!!!

 

I have no plan or purpose, but I will go to the grocery store in the next few days and see if there's anything "holidayish" left on sale, food wise. Maybe I find something, maybe I don't...never know....!!!!

 

Queston: Did ANYBODY out there see Pepperidge Farm Cranberry Swirl bread this year? I never saw it at our Walmart or Tops here in W. PA. I really like that bread and they only used to make it around the Holidays. Maybe I just missed it....

 

 

Happy New Year to all....!!!  Onward to Spring!!!!

 

And thank goodness it's going to warm up this weekend here in the NE!!!!

I usually think January can be bleak after all the lights and decorations in December.  My youngest is graduating from high school this year.  I have a feeling after New Year's we'll just be hurtling toward that milestone.

I am still in the holiday spirit as I have another family get together coming up.

I found out yesterday that my brother and SIL will be stopping here for one overnight on their way to Florida, so I've been back fussing and preparing.  I guess I'll have to put off feeling blue until Thursday.
