I told D.G. that we shouldn't be stressing out over preparing for Christmas since the world may be ending on the 21st. However, I also said that if the world has to end I'm glad that it's now and not either of the last 2 years. At least now, I'm relatively happy and I've had 11 months with C.S. Is being able to joke about the end of the world a good thing or a sign that I'm still totally messed up?
Where did the last week and half go? It's driving me nuts that preparing for a holiday I don't particularly want to celebrate is taking up so much of my time. I think we are nearly done all the shopping. D and I are working on making Christmas cards again. I've done the monthly grocery shopping and bought a lot chocolate to use for baking (chocolate being one the parts of Christmas I still want to partake in). I just want to find a way to put my head down and get through Christmas without too much effort or deep thought.
