Christmas is almost heeeeeeeere! (Ok, there’s still about a week to go, but I have two children who are doing an excellent job at keeping me posted on exactly how many days we have until Christmas. We’re talking hourly updates.)
I always have a bit of a rough time getting into the Christmas spirit, and this year is something extra. I want to be all blissed-out in front of a fireplace, feeling cozy and joyful and safe, but it’s 70 degrees outside and the world is falling apart around our ears and there’s so much to do every day that fireplace bliss doesn’t feel like a solid use of my time, and…
You get it. But instead of shrugging my shoulders and drowning my sorrows in whiskey-spiked Swiss Miss (although that doesn’t sound like a terrible idea), I have decided that I am going to spend this week making the Spirit happen, via Oreo truffle if necessary.
I deserve a few days of comfort and joy. So do you. These ideas won’t necessarily inspire you to instantly burst out in a cacophonous rendition of Good King Wenceslas, but they’ll help, I think.
