Imagine what will happen if the stores are allowed to stay open all night Christmas Eve until lunch time on Christmas Day! This year, more than 50,000 restaurants, bars, convenience stores and...
My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
I think I do. I've been extra tired and low on energy. I'm also not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow. I think that's it more than anything. It doesn't help to think about taking down decorations over the weekend. It has to happen but it looks so bare for a while.
A Beary Merry Christmas to all!
I was going to start to take ornaments off my tree today. But it is too cold and windy to get in the attic, so I think I will wait till 12th night etc. I think I have a little Christmas let down, but not much. This year I just wasn't in the mood that much, we had so much going on in our family this year, then I was sick with that bronchial stuff and tired. Christmas was on Tues and no one could get in at the same time. But I am already planning for next year. That is sort of how I get thru the after Christmas blahs. Plus I need to get all this 'sugar' out of my system and get my energy back too.
I have been ok so far...but I have been more tired than usual. And going back to work is going to be like pulling teeth...I dread it. But I guess once I get back into the swing of things life will resume back to normal.
I have okay so far, but my husband goes back to work tomorrow, and the kids go back to school Thursday. That is usually when it hits big time. Luckily, I will be working for the first week they are back in school (I am a substitute teacher.) so that should help some.
Aaaaaaahhhh!! The blues are hitting me hard this year! Probably due to having a less than great Christmas... still I keep trying to tell myself I have lots of good things to look forward to this year... moving into new house with my girlfriend at the end of the month, soon to be brother in law's stag weekend in March (weekend in Edinburgh), sisters wedding in May, break to a cottage in Devon after the wedding then we'll almost be at the halfway mark! This first bit is always the hardest, back at work and back to 'normality'
Looking forward to getting to the first milestone in the countdown!
new years eve was a little hard, before i went out with my friends, my boyfriend and i went for a chinese meal, they were playing christmas music and "fairytale of new york" came on which is my most treasured song, i had tears in my eyes (embarrassing, i know!) but i couldn't help it, not many people understand what christmas means to me and it's just so sad that it's all over for another year.
january is always a tough month but i hope so much with the support of you lot i can get through it a bit easier.
IM SO GLAD I FOUND THIS FORUMS AND MET YOU PEOPLE!!! Cuz honestly, its how I feel... I was about to post it here til I read this!!!
Earlier tonight on my way home from work, I text my gf that I was soooo down and depressed that the Christmas season is at an end. You see, Christmas is sooo special to me - Im a family guy and every Christmas season, we have a small reunion with some of my relatives, thus seeing it to an end really puts me down, cuz aside from that, I love the Christmas spirit/feeling.
I told her that the bright side is, I have to wait only 8 months, cuz September here, Christmas is beginning(thru decors mostly).
And yeah, I wish its the 2nd of December too! I love you guys!
I am doing everything in my power to NOT get the after Christmas blues!!! There has to be a way to keep the spirit alive all year round...starting right here!!! I feel better already after visiting this site today!!
I posted this on another thread earlier about how I'm trying to NOT get the blues:
It was back to work for me today - I had 11 days off (and it was completely wonderful!!) & I think it is harder to come back after 11 days of hanging out at home, coming, going, people stopping over, eating, drinking, being merry, late nights, pretty much doing whatever we want, no schedule, etc. than it is to come back after going away on vacation!! But I am hoping to have the days between the holidays off again next year. I totally enjoyed it!! I went to Ben Franklin over the weekend & bought a bunch of snowmen 50% off to put up when I take down my decorations, & I bought some lighted garland (white/clear lights) for $2.50 to put up on the mantle or around our banister. Though I am not looking forward to taking my Chrsitmas stuff down, I am looking forward to getting my snowmen & clear lights out! I also bought 6 Christmas dvd's at the grocery store - they were $1.99 each & most of them have 2 Christmas movies on them! They are all movies I have never seen (or heard of) before, but they sound really good. I think most of them are older movies. I am grabbing at anything that will help keep my Christmas spirit alive!! Thanks to this wonderful webiste I don't think it will be all that hard to do!!
Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace & goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
