As I'm reading through other blogs this morning, I see that it's not just me that's feeling that after-Christmas letdown. Like someone let the air out of your tires feeling. I know I've already whined about it, but really, where did the time go? I feel like I still need to wrap presents and shuffle around looking for that "one more" gift for someone. Then I look under the tree and see all the presents unwrapped, and remember that there's no more shopping needed, except of course with the gift cards I received as presents, and I can't wait to do that! But, seriously, every year, there is this ho-hum feeling between Christmas and New Years, like I'm floating somewhere, not quite sure what to do. School starts again January 2, which is coming WAY TOO SOON. Our vacation time gets whittled down more and more every year, but seriously, January 2? If I actually drink on New Years Eve, I will have only one morning to sleep off the hangover!! That's not fair! I have spent these last few days spending gift certificates, working out till exhaustion at the gym (too many Christmas temptations that I didn't say no to), and visiting family members that I didn't get to see at Christmas. Since Kenny is back to working, I've been watching some of the new movies we got and completely avoiding the last bit of masters work I have to do. I also committed to making a quilt for St. Judes, and the fabric has been purchased, but I haven't started it yet. My point is that I have plenty of things to do with my time off, and I'm not complaining about the time, but I am just sad that Christmas is already over. Can we do it again?

I always get the post-Christmas blues. You spend weeks and weeks (or in my case - months and months) preparing and then ::POOOF:: it's over. How depressing is that?? Now the tree needs taken down and the decorations put away...sigh.
