Been a little blue

Saturday, December 03, 2011

I've been a little blue the past two days. The week started out great and I was moving along on a positive note but I'm not sure what happened. I know I always get a bit blue around the holidays. Maybe I'm feeling this way because another Christmas is almost upon us and I know there will be no presents under my tree. I don't even want to put a tree up. I wish I was in a better financial place so I could buy gifts for the people I love. I know Christmas is about so much more and I try to avoid the media hype about "buying." I even try to avoid watching tv this time of year because the commercials depress me. My favorite is the Lexxus one. I wish someone would buy me a lexxus for Christmas...lol.

I didn't plan to go out tonight....and especially to go dancing....my favorite thing! But events seem to be in my favor so I'm going out and I'm planning to leave a lot of fat cells on the dance floor.

And for tomorrow.... my daughter wants to put up the Christmas tree and some decorations so we can get into the spirit of the season. Next weekend we are going out to buy some gifts for a few children from her gift tree at work. We feel if we can spread some holiday cheer to a few less fortunate that us than we have made a difference and will wake up Christmas morning knowing that even though there is nothing under our tree there will be for some precious child.... and we will make our traditional "homemade" waffles for breakfast and just relax and enjoy some loving time together. It will be a good Christmas after all!

Off to get ready to dance. Think I'm going to dress extra nice tonight. That always helps me when I get in these moods. And who knows.....maybe, just maybe I might even get a guy to ask me to dance tonight. Not that it's so important but sometimes it is nice just to have them ask me (they always ask my daughter - dirty old men...lol - and she refuses for the same reason...lolol).

Going to try to keep my upbeat attitude for the rest of the month!

Keep Sparking....it works!

    I'll second that order for a Lexus--and a job to support it. I like your attitude. May this month be full of good things. Sometimes it takes noticing them and sometimes it means creating them yourself. emoticon
