Actually, the holiday shopping is all done and the presents are wrapped. The house is decorated, cookies have been baked (thanks to Meghan), and everything is ready for Christmas.
. . . except me. Unfortunately, the “day job” has casted a bit of bah-hum-bug shadow. I’ve been spending a lot of time right here in this chair typing away. In the corporate world I believe they refer to it as overtime and I am determined not to take a loss this holiday season. And with Christmas & New Years falling on a Sunday, who knows I might even come out just a tad ahead, which in the corporate world is what they call a bonus. Unfortunately, all this work has put a bit of a damper on my holiday merriment (sorry family). It’s difficult to feel festive when it’s all work and no play. So, before it is too late (only three days ’til Christmas), I decided I better change things up a bit. How? Well, for one, this post (when normally I’d have started working already) and to reflect on what’s really important! . . . and then work. And maybe tonight take a drive around and check out all the Christmas lights . . . even if it happens to rain. And what the heck, let’s bake up some more cookies, snuggle up and watch corney Christmas movies, and well . . . just be happy.
