Bah humbug

I am in a not so Christmasy mood. I don't know why but I am. And nothing I do seems to change that.
I don't want to see pretty decorated trees, sparkly Christmas lights and Santa. I don't want to go to Christmas parties and exchange gifts.
Every year I REALLY look forward to going to my annual EGA Christmas party with the annual handstitched ornament Chinese gift exchange. I pick out my pattern way in advance of the party and have my ornament wrapped and ready to go at least a month before the party.
This year I have not only NOT MADE one, I am not going to the party at all. Don't wanna. Not interested.
And I was going to my annual company Christmas party this year despite my bah humbug mood until someone changed the plans for the party. Nothing big; just a little tiny itsy bitsy thing. And BOOM! Not going. Can't make me.
I am not even interested in going to see Christmas lights, one of my absolutely favorite things to do. I don't even have a ooh or an aah in me for them.
What is up? Anyone else feeling this way?

I'm not in a Christmas mood either... but I think that I will stitch maybe a little ornament and maybe it will change my mood...

It's the same for me too. Though I have decorated-I really can't wait for it to be over. I hope it gets better for the both of us.

I hope things get better soon. You're probably exhausted from all the hard work you did this year getting the Stitch for a Cure tree and other things done. You need a nice relaxing vacation where you do nothing but stitch or whatever happens to make you happy.

Big hugs!

I am not thrilled. It seems like everything is getting done last minute.
Snow gets me in the mood, lol. we have had a little not much. I sure hope it doensn't snow the day before Christmas, or I am in trouble, lol.

I haven't been in the mood either, I think its been stressing me out figuring out how I'm going to sort my budget out for this holiday season.

You should try to go to your EGA party maybe that will help. I'm sure there's an ornament you can whip up in no time!

Wow, you sound really Bah-Humbug
;-) There's still a few weeks before Christmas, maybe you'll feel better about it.

My company's Christmas party was last weekend. I haven't gone in a few years... and this last one was really tacky, I heard. I'd rather just stay home.

Well, the party is over! The place was dirty, at one point I thought the guy who was our waiter was going to throw the food at us.
The food was OK but with a little ok and the party was NOT the same without you there!!! EVERYBODY asked after you and we ALL missed you terribly and next year I hope you get over the BH and come join us.
I do feel the same way you do but I think it is cause we have freight day Thursday before Christmas and although we are only open till 5:30 we can NOT go home till EVERYTHING in the store is put up and zoned.
I usually decorate the tree at 9 o'clock that night. Does this mean I will have to do it early? HA! I will be so glad when this season is over and if God is willing I hope to find a different job not working in RETAIL ever again.
Hang in there darlin' it will get better or not. But one thing is for sure ~ it will end for this year anyway.
Hope to see your shinning face real soon.
God Bless ~

I also feel this way and haven't decorated either and could care less. I don't know why.

We'll leave for Lapland (a cottage) for Xmas; so I am not able to imagine what it will be like this year. My DH's sister and her family will be there too. No need to prepare anything really... so my Christmas mood is also not here.
