AFTER CHRISTMAS BLUES


The Christmas tree and decorations are packed away for another year. Rob has returned to work, I'm back to work on Monday and things are getting back to normal at our house.

I always go through a bit of "After Christmas Blues" at this time every year. I love the season so much, all the anticipation, the shopping, baking, and getting the cards and parcels mailed off, and then "Bam", it's over.

I'm trying some new things this year to help fend off the sadness that arrives every year. I've made a lot of plans for January with friends, and instead on focusing on what's over, I'm concentrating on what's coming up, and that does seem to be helping.

New years eve is tomorrow, and though Rob and I aren't 100% sure what we're doing yet, I know whatever we decide to go with, we're going to enjoy.

Christmas will be back again next year, and it's never to early for me to start thinking about that!

I'm still waiting for the Christmas spirit to hit me.

I'm impressed with your honesty. Here's some food for thought; all the hype and commercialism associated with Christmas has reached new heights.

Which in my opinion has created a barrage of problems to what is really a special time of year. All that energy has been misdirected.

I hope the New Year is full of promise and renewed energy for you.
