The OST to Grease always puts me in a good mood. Whenever I put it on it doesn't take me long before I am singing along and dancing

Is it Nov 2013 yet?
I have been that way in the past ~ this year I intend to be so busy I'll wish time would slow down more! I hope the months are better for you than you are expecting them to be, jennifer!

It's a quieter day at work today, which is much appreciated. It's just about lunch time, and that's good too. Tomorrow's Friday, which is even better.

We haven't taken any of our Christmas decor down yet. We leave the outside decorations up until Epiphany (Jan. 6), and then the tree usually stays up until Lent (Feb. 13 this year). So we still have a little while to look at and enjoy our Christmas things.

Great idea, xmas! I keep up a few Christmas items, too: a metal Christmas wall hanging that says JOY and my metal cardinal tree. I can't help but smile when I see them! Another idea would be to do something Christmas-sy every 25 of the month to celebrate Rudolph Day. Planning what you are going to do will make the time go by faster and will help to dispel any gloom!

In alot of ways, I completely agree with you. The whole house seems alive when all the decorations are up and the lights are on and give off the warm Christmas glow. It's full of life and when their unplugged and then packed away, I sit there and look at the space and it appears empty to me and in my heart...

I am taking a page out of A Christmas carol and Ebenezer Scrooge this year -

I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.

Yup, the tree may come down, the lights packed away but christmas itself, will always be in my heart....

Heh. I have the Christmas music still going in my car and home. The tree is up and lit right now and the house is still festive. I'm going to see how long I can get away with it! Why not! The neighbors still have all their stuff up and on. I love it! William loved his gifts. He keeps saying "Daddy, I love my gifts!". We did a good job this year. I hope everyone else had a good one too. Don't get the blues people. If you do we still have HERE! I found a pine yankee candle at Halmark for 12 bucks! YAY! I get excited when I find the Christmas scents. We are all recovering from a virus that has been pretty bad this year. Flu like symptoms but not the flu. You know what I don't like? When radio stations stop right away on December 26th with Christmas music. It should go through till the first week of January. Well, that's what I think. Hope everyone has a good evening!
Well said, Undrtakr! I'm glad you are all recovering from that virus. Lucky find on the candle, too. Happy New Year to you and your family!
