I was curled up in bed coughing my brain out (I have this persistent cough that I’ve just accepted as a part of my permanent existence) and I thought, WAIT! I HAVEN’T BLOGGED! I ALMOST BROKE MY NABLOPOMO STREAK!
Here’s a weird thing. I’m in the Christmas spirit much earlier this year than usual. I usually don’t really ever get into it at the level of most, but this year I really am fighting off the urge to put up the tree…like…YESTERDAY. I think it’s because our past two Christmases have been in the throws of trying to sell a house and the year? NO SUCH WORRIES! I can decorate however I want whenever I want! There’s no showings or construction or packing or purging or anything! So I think what I’m feeling is like – two years worth of Christmas spirit finally busting out and saying, “LET US DO THIS THING!”
But I’ve resisted, so far. I did start shopping earlier than usual, which I NEVER do. And but the decorations are still in their boxes and no gifts have been wrapped.
E- on the other hand – already has his decorations up in his apartment and that also warmed my heart and made me want to jump into the spirit.
I’m going to try to wait at least one more week. So that I can use the guise of “putting it up for Thanksgiving” at least!
What about you? When (if) do you get into the Christmas spirit?
