I have posted this in years past and it always cracks me up.
Maybe it will help me with the serious lack of Christmas spirit I have been feeling lately.
Somehow we lost the box with our artificial Christmas tree in it when we moved. Also in the box was the Angel Topper that we used to have on our Christmas tree when I was growing up. My Dad gave it to me after my Mom died and it has graced our tree for 13 years since she has been gone.
The fact that it is probably gone for good makes me want to curl up in a ball on the floor and cry. Oh wait. I already did that the day I realized the box was not in either of the only 2 places it could be. We’re not even going to get a tree this year because I can’t bear the thought of replacing it and you can’t have a tree without a tree topper. You just can’t.
We’re listening to continuous Christmas music at my job. It either makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside or makes me want to pierce my eardrums with a pair of sharp scissors. It depends on my mood.
Some of the older Christmas songs make me downright melancholy. Anything from the "It's Christmas Time Charlie Brown" soundtrack makes me want to cry. And Away in a Manger. As well as any song by Josh Groban. Okay they ALL make me sad. I don’t know why that is.
We finally got the internet hooked up at our house again.
Surprisingly, I found that I am not as eager as I thought I would be to jump back on the computer 24/7 like I used to.
There are so many things I can get done when I’m not chained to the computer.
Like read books. And make Christmas crafts. And send out Christmas cards. And watch cheesy movies and play board games with my husband.
I’m sure I’ll re-join the land of the internets soon but for right now I’m just not feeling it.
********UPDATE******** My husband found the Angel Tree topper. Not the tree, just the topper. I am so happy!!
