“It’s the holiday season.  So whoop-dee-doo, and dickery-dock.  And don’t forget to sit on my hang up your sock.”   – Andy Williams

So, it’s that time of year again. 

Ugh.  

I have such a love/hate relationship with the holidays lately.  I used to really look forward to this time of year, but nowadays…notsomuch.  I really should apologize for blowing off Thanksgiving and not sending you guys lots of turkey love.  But I was hiding under a rock with my good buddy Wiser.  Instead of having a frozen turkey tv dinner, the Punkster was with his mom and her family, which is the way it should be.  They invited me too, but I think I would’ve rather wrestled rabid raccoons than endure another “get together” with the out-laws. 

So here it is, two weeks before the big day and I just can’t seem to get into the spirit.  The fact that it’s the first one without my mom probably has something to do with it.  And I’m not really looking forward to NYE either.  Sucks being by yourself on the holidays.  But I’m going to do my best not to let it get me down too much.  Instead of just pulling the covers over my head until after the first of the year, I’ll try to gleam some of the Christmas spirit from you guys by keeping up with all of your holiday goings-on.  May the spirit of the holidays be with all of you.  

Now get out there and buy me something!

    Being single is definitely a downer around the holidays. Thanks god for good friends! Having loved ones pass away definitely makes it worse. They say the first Christmas without them is the worse.

    what would you like for Christmas, little boy? Have you been good this year? or do you deserve something naughty? hehehehe

    Yeah, Christmas can suck. I think the ‘spirit’ is tough for a lot of people this year, even WITH family, but it’s got to be much worse with a loss. Change it up – do something totally unexpected…find a new ‘tradition’. And however you should choose…I wish you Happy Holidays, and a much better Next Year!

    How many rabid racoons can you wrestle at one time?

    the first Christmas after my mom died was horrible. but it did get better.

    Try chocolate- there are some damn awesome chocolates out just for Christmas -, that works for me.

    Teri – Good? I’ve had no complaints.

    Tug – You’re right. Instead of Christmas cookies, I’ll make Christmas “brownies”.

    Fab – Quite a few. As long as none of them are named Rocky.

    Blue – Chocolate…mmmmm.

    Jen – *holding breath* Thnks!

    Dick – Hey, maybe we should “celebrate” together, if you catch my drift.
