So yes it’s that wonderful time of the year. Everyone is happy and smiling and walking around and life is great. Yaaa, not so much. This time of year is my least favorite. And I am okay with that. I understand the true reason for the holidays and I celebrate the birth of Christ. It’s all the other crap I’m not a fan of, or maybe it’s the fact that I work retail.
Nothing good ever really happens this time of year. But I do what we all do, smile and say everything is fine. I do it for my son and my husband. They both love Christmas. I smile when we wrap presents, put up the tree, decorate the house, and don’t forget those stinking lights. Gotta love the lights. Well, I will say I enjoy collecting my Santas. Christmas Eve is the only thing I truly enjoy. I love reading my son ’twas the night before Christmas. That makes me smile.
What I would really like this time of the year is to go lay on a beach next to the ocean, listen to the waves and just relax with my family. No trees, no lights, no hub bub. Just me, my family and the ocean. I find the ocean very peaceful and relaxing.
Instead of the ocean this year I will be getting something that is good. For Christmas I am getting my right hip replaced. Everyone says this is the best thing I could do and that the pain just goes away. We will see. On Dec. 10 I go in for surgery.
I really hope that you get to do whatever makes you and your family happy this holiday season. Hold them close and give them lots of love.
Take care and be safe out there.
