Eight More Days Until Christmas!

hi kids.  it's been a while.  when last we met, i was just taking in some really bad news, dealing with the usual "as yvonne's world turns" stuff and trying to keep my head above water.  eh, all that stuff is still there but my emotional state is a lot more tolerable now.  sometimes you just have to disconnect, you know?

so christmas is right around the corner.  last minute scurrying about, chaos at the malls, gift idea dilemmas and lots of parties to go to.  that's what the last few weeks have been like for me.  how about you?  is the holiday rush too much for you to bear? do you wish you could hide in a cave until january 1st?  haha, sometimes i do.

not gonna lie, december always depresses me.  don't get me wrong, i love christmas and all that goes with it. but what depresses me is that the year is coming to an end.  and that usually scares me and excites me at the same time.  i'm sad for what is ending and for what i didn't accomplish in the year or perhaps for what i did accomplish.  know what i mean? it's okay if you don't. sometimes i don't get what i'm saying either.  it happens.  but the end of the year also excites me and gives me hope for the new. for what is to come and for what i have yet to do.  and i'm always hopeful for good things to happen to me, to my loved ones, to my blogger friends.  always hopeful.

one thing is for sure, my heart is full of love.  it's so full it's spilling over.  even the haters, i love them too.  someone has to.

so what do you hope santa brings to you this year?   hope you've been good. he's watching you know.

if i don't delete this post, and you get through it and even leave a comment, i thank you for sticking it out.  i'll write something more palatable in a few days.  before christmas for sure.

until then, here's a happy for you!

I get what you're saying about this time of year. It's a happy time, it's a sad time. Stressful, really. And, yes: I do find myself wishing for Jan 1st all the same!

I love Christmas. But I also yearn for the simplicity and boredom that is the long, cold month of January!

Have a good one, my friend. ;)

Actually this post made a lot of sense. Endings and Beginnings. I think people always have trouble with them. I think that sometimes we just have to be thankful that we accomplished as much as we did, we failed, we succeeded, and we get another chance in January. Merry Christmas Yvonne!

All I want from Santa is good health for my family. The holidays can suck bigtime. I remember the ones with my late hubby and I miss that part of my life. But, I have Bruce in Florida at Daytona Beach. I deserve to be Merry and Happy dammit...lol

David- See? I don't like January. It's dreary to me, everyone's coming off the holiday "high" we've been on since November and it's pretty gloomy out here in Houston, during that month. I'm always so happy to see it go!

I hope Santa brings you what you wish for. I'm sure you were a good boy this year. :)

Robin- Thank you! Merry Christmas to you!!! :)

BB- May you get what you are asking for, friend. Merry Christmas!

It's what's in your heart that matters. And if your heart is full of love, then you're already blessed beyond measure. :)

This time of year is funky for me, too. I spend it reflecting, thinking about what I've done and what I need to do, adding up the wins and comparing them to the losses. So I totally get what you're feeling, my friend. You're not in this alone!

No lie, I asked Santa to bring me a nice, single man. His response: "Is there such a thing?" Yvonne, if SANTA doesn't have hope for me/us single women...oy. But I wandered around the area where I saw him for a bit. As I was leaving he said "I'll think about your request." Pretty funny.

I tend to get depressed in December also, but a new start is always exciting.

Hugs to you, friend,

Jen- At least I know I'm not the only one that feels this way this time of year. Thanks for the support, friend! :)

Robyn- Meh, Santa has lost his mind!!! :)
