Seriously lousy confession

OK, that's it. Every day I swear I will write and fill you in on the holidays and it just doesn't get done. Frankly NOTHING gets done. I am totally overwhelmed, exhausted, and don't want to play any more.

So, for momentary distractions, I visit all you wonderful people and see your beautiful homes, appropriately clean and styled. Well, gotta stop that right now. Seriously, it is depressing me. Why you ask? Well, let's just say this. My damn Christmas tree is still up and decorated, the other madness is still laying all over like we are expecting Santa again, and the overall house is just a flat disaster. There you have it. I am a total loser aren't I? But I can't be the ONLY soul in America can I? Yep, you are right, I probably am.

Plus I run to open mail today to be smacked with a lovely thank you card from my aunt, but clueless me just HAS to open the papers enclosed to find the obit and funeral folder from my uncle's service hidden inside. Yeah, NOT what I needed to see today at all.

OK, enough whining, back to work, and NO that does not include time for decorations or cleaning....................

If it's any consolation, I just took all my Christmas stuff down last week. Took it down, yeah, but put it away? No. It's in piles all around the place and the tubs the decorations go into are stacked up with nothing in them. I think I'm trying to ignore it all because I keep finding distractions. I really don't want to pack all that stuff up and haul it up into the attic. Parts of the house are starting to look like a storage unit.

So ... you're not the only one. ;-)

Hi Lisa,

I am long overdue in posting here, my friend. You are not the only one behind in packing up memories of Christmas past. Our tree is still up with piles of unwrapped presents underneath. (Everything else is down though - phew.)

And, although I take the time to visit all my blogging friends, I haven't had time to leave a post. I hope that will change soon with the end of Michael's chemo. I just had to take the time and let you know that I appreciate your comments and support.

I am very sorry to hear about the passing of your Uncle. Hopefully your memories will ease your pain. Let's hope 2009 is a happy and positive year for all. JoAnne
