It came, but...

it only deposited about 4 inches of snow here in central CT. Eastern MA and RI got nailed, though. Up to 20 inches in the Cape. We didn't really get the winds this far inland either. I guess this isn't a bad thing, LoL.
What is it with the holiday blues? I was all psyched up in November. I had nostalgic sentimental fantasies about how wonderful it was going to be here for Christmas this year. My parents are coming, so we won't be alone. This is wonderful! And I am so glad they are coming, and I'm sure we will have a good time. Really, that hasn't got a whole lot to do with my present mood though. Seems I go through this every year, no matter whether we stay or go. I seem to have lost the Christmas spirit about the first week of December. Where did it go?
Ok. Maybe I overdid it on the Christmas music, starting before Thanksgiving. I'm not exactly tired of it, but, perhaps the initial thrill is over. Perhaps once this week is over, and the house is cleaned and the baking done, I will be a bit less stressed and looking forward to just relaxing. That's it. I just need to start cleaning this house and work on the baking. Alright then.
Ummm... did I mention I am not fond of cleaning? And maybe my baking list is just a wee bit too long. I just love making lists, but the reality is, I always bite off more than I can chew. And subconsciously, I know this. Perhaps that's the 'stress button' going off in the back of my brain somewhere. I mean, how much can 4 people possibly eat?! Let me rephrase that. How much SHOULD 4 people possibly eat? Let's face it. Overloading on carbs and sweets just makes every one tired and cranky by the 2nd or 3rd day. Been there, done that. And buying enough appetizers to feed a herd of elephants, well, perhaps I should whittle that list down a bit too. I will just spend too much, and throw half of it away. Ok, maybe not 'throw' it away, as much as stuff ourselves so we don't waste it. :0)
Only one thing to do then. Where's the broom and mop bucket?

I hope you had a nice Christmas. It is so easy to overdo it at this time of year, I agree.
Have a really wonderful New Year!!!
