So, it’s December in a couple days and I am not even remotely ready to get into the Christmas spirit. I feel like I am still catching up from the busy pace of the fall, still trying to stay on top of all the usual needs of the day, and the thought of digging out the Christmas decorations, planning out my holiday baking and draining the bank account on stuff that no one needs isn’t really yanking my chain.
I think I have a case of PMS-induced Scrooge. PMScrooge? Yes.
This weekend is the Festival of Lights when everyone from our quaint little town gathers downtown to eat mini donuts in the dark and then “ooh!” and “ahhh!” when all the Christmas lights get turned on at once.

It’s usually a really festive, feel-good time and I am hoping that it will help drag me out of this pre-holiday slump I find myself in and help springboard me into some excitement about the crescendo to Christmas.
Anyone else feeling grumpy and overwhelmed about the upcoming holidays? Just me?
