I’m really struggling this year to get into the Christmas spirit. My grandmother died during this time and my father in law is fighting a pretty tough battle right now with his health. Some years aren’t bad, but this year I am just grasping at anything I can to try to be festive. I got the lights on the tree today. I don’t want my kids to have shitty memories of Christmas, so I’m trying really hard. Next step is to try to get all these presents wrapped.
I’m working a more than usual this week. I’m pretty excited that I have the last part of the week off to spend with my family. Everyone will be home. My boys are getting older and it makes me wonder how many more I’ll have with them both here.
