Christmas Chaos and Post-Christmas Depression

I don't want to sound ungrateful because I'm totally not, but Christmas is always such a let down. You spend all this time looking forward to the big day, planning and wrapping and imagining, and then the day comes and it's awesome. Then you come home and it looks like a bomb of wrapping paper, cardboard boxes, and little toy pieces exploded in every room of the house. And you've got all this new stuff and no where to put it. I told Curtis we needed to donate half of Sean's toys to charity before he got all the new ones, but he decided to not listen to me (big surprise) and now Sean cries for an hour every time we ask him to clean up or threaten to get rid of his toys. Merry Christmas to us.

Al in all it was a great holiday with family. I got three things I really, really wanted, and my super generous relatives gave me enough money to pay off a speeding ticket I got a month ago. Not exactly what I want to spend it on, but when you act like a child you have to pay like an adult. Sometimes being an adult sucks!

My handsome (and not angry about the speeding ticket) husband

We were stupid enough to get out in shopping traffic to eat lunch the day after Christmas. Dumb, dumb, dumb. But I hadn't taken photos in days. And my future sister-in-law had given me a beautiful scarf and the background was awesome, so I asked my husband to shoot a few.

I feel the exact same way about Christmas.... the day you plan for, wait for, and get so excited for comes & goes so quickly...and then nothing.... I always get the blues after Christmas for some reason..... the weather is so dreary this time of year too..... need a tropical vacation right after the holidays I think!!! Love the scarf!!! Victoria has excellent taste!!!

I love your outfit!! Just beautiful with that scarf! I know exactly what you mean about the letdown that comes after Christmas. Only never let it be said that I'm not ahead of the game because I always start to feel it a couple of days *before* Christmas! By the way, I always make my son throw out the old to make room for the new and I tell him nothing he gets on Christmas day will go anywhere near his room until its done.

This is Curtis...to clear my name let me say that I am all for donating toys to charity. My reason for stalling had more to do with the fact that we had walked in the door 5 seconds before you said that and I was not going to do it right then. Now I don't feel like a Grinch, so I'm glad I cleared that up.
