Almost Ready

I have been vacillating between grinchy and merry this holiday season. I want to be happy about it because it is my first Christmas with my son, but I haven’t wanted ti deal with the work. There are still cookies unbaked and presents unwrapped, but there is a tree and a wreath and the old stuffed joy that always hung above my parent’s fireplace. This is the first year I am hanging up since we sold my mom’s house, but it is so iconic to me. It was one of my favorite things to get out of the big box of decorations they kept in the garage and it looked so cheery above the fireplace, framed by our stockings.  It seems out-of-place on my wall, but there is a cute spot for it and maybe it will end up being a new family tradition of our little family.  I try to focus on establishing new traditions and am slowly realizing that I am assuming the “mom” role this Christmas. It seems unfamiliar, but suits me at the same time.

If I don’t post again before Friday, Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it and have a really nice day on the 25th for those who don’t.
