Where's my Christmas spirit....have you seen it anywhere?

The Christmas spirit eludes me this year. I'm not depressed or anything but I just don't have the Christmas spirit. I'm just going through the motions. Actually, I'm just doing what I have to do but nothing extra. I haven't decorated the house, put up a tree or played a single Christmas cd. If you knew me you would know how unusual and out of character all this is. I'm normally the Queen of Christmas. My kids have always teased me by saying my house looks like a Hallmark store. I'm not bah humbug or anything. I just kind of want to take a time-out this year. I hope to be rejuvenated in time for Christmas next year. Maybe if I'm patient it will all come back to me in 365 days.

After 14+ days of doing little else but Christmas decorations, I am all burned out already, and I still have my own house to do, as well as a private home I decorate with a friend. I love doing it for pay; not so much here at home....LOL

Having grand children helps me with the Christmas spirit, but I can definitely relate to the waxing and waning of the spirit over the years. Seems like if I do less I enjoy more so I try to not get too caught up in the "must do" frenzy. I'm not always successful.
