I guess that would make me The Grinch

I'm so not in the Christmas mood, and it makes me a little sad.

Usually, I'm like a little kid with Christmas. I start counting down the days the day after Thanksgiving. I start planning and decorating. I love Christmas shopping and the excitement of finding the perfect gift.

This year? I couldn't care less.

Okay, that's an exageration. I'm just...apathetic to the holiday. We got our tree the weekend after Thanksgiving, as usual, and even got him up in the house:

Meet Winston. Yes, I name my trees.
I even named the tree per my usual holiday exuberence... but that's where it ended. I realized the other day how close Christmas is... and it didn't excite me. Saturday Drew and I acknowledged that we hadn't done any of our Christmas shopping yet... it didn't bother me.

Bah humbug...

I want to be excited. I want to decorate, and shop and plan... but it's just not happening. I did, however, manage to do 80% of our Christmas shopping online the other night, so many of the gifts are taken care of, but between the fatigue, achiness and general moodiness that people say is to be expected of the first trimester, I'm just rather blah.

This is me


  1. DOn't feel bad, you're not alone! Christmas is my absolute favorite but this year I'm just not feeling it like I usually do. Must be the pregnancy exhaustion!

  2. I name my tree's too! At least yours are normal, last year ours was Treebie.
