What is it Christmas already????

I'm not ready!! I'm not even sure I WANT to be ready for Christmas. I just want to crawl back into bed and hide under the covers till it blows over in its flurry of wrapping paper and tinsel glory. I'm a summer holiday "we're all laid back, don't wear a watch and couldn't give a damn WHAT day of the week it is" kinda person. I'm not quite sure what started my Christmas aversion..I think it just sort of crept up on me slowly and then drowned me in bills and christmas bows. That and the idea of all the cleaning and dusting that comes with it.
I used to love Christmas...but I guess that was back in the days when my Mom did all the work. Everything seemed to happen by magic. Mom I appreciate you SOOO much more are amazing!
I started this post with good intentions and now I am tired just thinking about how much I dread the fuss and drama of the Christmas season. Guess the tree is not going to get hauled out today after all. I'll be a Grinch for a while longer yet.
