It's getting nearer and nearer to Christmas. Neither Shawn or I have significant plans and that's OK with me. We don't have any immediate family near by to celebrate with, and the family we do have often forgets to invite us. Maybe my last fruit salad was toxic ? Or I brought White wine instead of red ? Who knows....
If I had my parents and sisters close by I would feel differently about the holidays.
The holidays tend to depress me and get me into a downward spiral that I don't come out of until at least March. I know I know sounds cliche, but I am a Grinch. We are lucky the tree is up and decorated this year. I haven't seen my horse in days and my husband in almost three weeks, my level of enthusiasm is at an all time low. With a crabby teenager to boot, I think I want to head to Tahiti.
So next year my plans are going to be. A HUGE Holiday party at my house. With all my local blogger peeps, Barn Friends and Non Barn Friends. It's going to be an Annual event like no other. Nothing better to kick someone into the Holiday mode like having a bunch of friends over for my famous Christmas Spread.
We'll call it Blog and Nog Fest 2009.
It shall be spectacular....
