I'm just not that into you

Dear Christmas,

I'm sure if you read my blog, I have a post about you kind of like this every year.

I hate to break the news to you, but I'm just not that into you.

My tree is all up and decorated and pretty, but I've decided I don't even care. I said after all the time it takes to put together it was going to be a full month, meaning until the day after New Year's this year, but I know it's coming down the day after with serious thoughts of just skipping the whole process next year.

Maybe the fact that I've been sick and am still trying to get over a cough has something to do with it.

Maybe it's because until this weekend, I've been getting up early and going to events every weekend that I just have other things on my mind.

I know the fact that there's been some family drama has played it's part.

I don't think it's the fact that I have been making Christmas decorations since May or June and was anxious for Hobby Lobby to actually get their Christmas supplies out.

The fact that it's supposed to be 70 degrees on Christmas day doesn't help.

There's like one present I'm actually excited to give this year. I even told my brother we could skip the annual gift card exchange.

This all actually makes me quite sad. Christmas should be a happy and magical time. From the reaction I've had on Facebook, I'm not the only one in this boat.

All that I ask is that you be kind to me this week. Please be kind.

Audra
