Bah, humbug

This is the most un-Christmas Christmas I’ve ever had.
We don’t have a tree – we have no space, and I do not count a 1-foot high fir cutting placed in a pot, as a tree.
I didn’t send out a single card this year.
I am not going to do anything fancy with this site for Christmas, because I haven’t had time.
I just spent 2 hours – after attending the midnight church service – ironing clothes.
Merry Christmas, anyway.

    Oh, Vanessa, I’m sorry that your Christmas holiday has been less spectacular than the traditional holiday. However, much of the cheer of Christmas is a state of mind–and it looks like you still have a lot of things to be cheerful and grateful for (although ironing for 2 hours is a bit of a drag).
    Merry Christmas. May your clothes remain unwrinkled.

    Happy Christmas Vanessa, sometimes Christmas is not in the things around us but in our spirit. I am spending Christmas eve alone and Christmas day, we’re driving 14 hours to Texas. So we’ve postponed Christmas till the weekend. 🙂 Hang in there.

    Merry Christmas to everyone 😛 I do have many things I am still grateful for. It has been a year of miracles and blessings in fact. Perhaps I shouldn’t expect too much of the tangibles – we still have family time together, after all.
    Ben – I saw you at the midnight service. I was sitting further back, on the right.
