10...9...8...7...

It's 10 days 'til Christmas Eve, my favorite day of the entire year!

I've been trying to get in the “Christmas Spirit” this year. I bought a living tree to plant in the yard after Christmas. I got my ornaments out of the attic and put the favorite ones on the tree. I've strung white lights for me and the old-fashioned big bulb colored lights for the Dearly Beloved.

All my shopping is done! [well, except for 2, but getting them will take about 15 minutes.] The presents are wrapped and piled around the tree.

And still, I can't seem to maintain a consistently cheerful mood. It's there in flashes, but not all the time.

I'll work on it.

My big tubular package arrived from Denton yesterday!

You're doing good! No more big chores, so you can enjoy the season. I can tell you're working on it - I bet it'll be great.

I've been struggling with my Christmas spirit as well. I did put up decorations and our little cheesy fiber optic tree, and tonight we lit the candles and played Scrabble (for the first time in years), and I think I felt it! Progress.
