Tis the Season to Be....


Ok, so I wrote on my family blog this morning and expressed all the things that I LOVE about Christmas time... You may read them at www.cannonbaheclan.blogspot.com ....so you don't think that I am a total Grinch...

But, there are several things that annoy me about this time of year, also....

*The crowds of people....and here, in New England, they take advantage of your driving hospitality by pushing their cars into your lane, blocking the lane coming the other way and not allowing ANY traffic to go anywhere....(and the funny thing is---they had a "create peace" bumper sticker on their car...go figure....)

**I always eat too much food...especially sweets...that I usually don't indulge in...and then get angry at myself...

***Mailing packages is annoying... I try to do most of the shopping on line, but it seems so impersonal and I couldn't always find what I wanted...

****I get stressed by the whole "getting ready" for Christmas Eve, when we have some people over....believe me, I'm a Grinch then!

*****I really hate that there are always pine needles in my house for at least 4 months after Christmas....they seem to reproduce....

******I'm always either the choir director at church or in the choir or singing a solo in church, or the family is doing a number, so I am always stressed at the church Christmas program....it would kind of be nice to sit and not have anything to do....

*******No one gets enough sleep and kids are always whiny and cranky around this time of year...so much for the "oh, you better watch out"... theory.

********I don't get to see my G-babies at this time of year, and I MISS them so very much!

*********I really detest those "holiday" sweaters....and those pins and accessories.....where is "What Not to Wear" when you need them?

**********I do NOT like it when we have to say "Happy Holiday" to be PC to those who get offended if you keep the season Christ centered,......as that is the MAIN reason we have the holiday....and I have decided that I am NOT going to do this anymore...so this year I have always made a point to say: "Have a Merry Christmas!"

.....With all that off of my chest, I have to say that I hope the holidays are joyful for you and yours and that you don't encounter any of the nightmares that I just spoke of...

After all,.....didn't someone say that we don't recognize the good in things unless we have some of the bad?

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
