I should probably warn you that this is going to be a total Debbie Downer post. My life is so insane at the moment, I can't even keep up with my chocolate advent thingy.
I have been boo hooing for weeks about how I haven't been able to find time to do any Christmas stuff and I'm running out of time. It almost took too much effort just to throw some candy canes in my grandmother's old coffee mug.
My twinkle light just came out yesterday. I usually get that out right after Thanksgiving. Not this year and for so many reasons. All the production work took its toll on my early December Christmas spirit I am sorry to say.
As far as indoor decorating goes all I've gotten out from the stack of tubs in the basement is this sorry guy. He's a nonnegotiable. I need to fix his nose though. He needs a new pom pom.
The Mister has been MIA so tree duty was all on me. He's been doing 24/7 old mom care since last Friday and even worse, his best friend was in a serious car accident and is in shock trauma in a coma. Things don't look good. When he did come home he had to go to the hospital. Understandable.
To top it all off, this is what happened to HIS car while I was driving it home from rehearsal at the rink late Sunday night. Some nitwit kid tried to pass me at a million miles an hour and clipped me sending me into a ditch. I'm okay but this is the only vehicle I had that could haul the production team material back and forth from the rink and we have a holiday show on Saturday. That's a problem. Then I have all the wrangling with the insurance companies to deal with it not to mention that even though I'm not hurt, between the big jolt and the stress I feel like I've been run over by a truck. Sigh. I know I have a lot to be thankful for, this could have been so much worse if I had of hit a tree instead of going into a ditch but damn, people.....just damn. I need 2016 to be over.
