Monkey Monday





HAPPY MONKEY MONDAY!

Christmas is coming and I've got to hurry

and finish my shopping and avoid the flurry,

of last minute shoppers.


I finally got into the spirit this weekend.....(not the spirits, mind you, but the Christmas spirit. I was even listening to Christmas music all weekend. I hope this mood stays with me. I have a tendency to get a little depressed over the holidays. But I'm going to keep smiling and singing, (like Mom ;-) and put one foot in front of the other and keep on trucking!!! I have a few more presents to get.

Have a wonderful week, in spite of it all!


Peace

I made good headway on my Christmas shopping- I looked at the ads in the Sunday Press.....

I got into the spirit this weekend too.
I bought a cookie-making kit to attempt cookies and we even bought and installed three little lit trees in the front yard. They are on stakes, Kid Two just pushed them into the ground.

Woo hoo!

I almost never get into the season. Even with kids, it's just not my thing.

But the monkey with the santa hat helps. :)

It's hard, Odat. Totally understand. Happy Monkey Monday to you, tooand we'll keep smiling and singing even if there are a few moments that are depressed. It's a balance of sorts, I think, a see-saw...

I hope to get into both spirits and spirit go hand in hand :)

Christmas music is enough to drive me batshit-crazy. I can only handle it on two days: Christmas Eve and Christmas. That's it.

Open Grove Claudia said...

You do inspire, Odat. I'm not there yet.

Oswegan said...

I hope it stays with you.

Happy Day,
