~The Day After Christmas Blues~

To say I am feeling a bit depressed today would be an understatement.

I can’t believe that Christmas has come and gone..poof..just like that.

All the time, preparation, and anticipation that goes into it just to have it gone in one day. death of Christmas 2015 blues sadness
The presents that took hours to wrap were all tore to shreds in less than 30 minutes.  A first week of Christmas break already gone.  I had stuff planned…what happened?

My husband returns to work tonight and my dad left this morning before the sun even came up.  Probably due to the fact that he didn’t get much rest the past 2 nights.  Not only because my house is noisy but also he had a cold with a cough that would just not let up no matter what remedy I fed him.

My house is a disaster and I have no desire what. so. ever. to clean it up.  The sun is shining but it’s so cold that none of the snow is melting.  I should take the kids sledding or something but it’s literally only 18*F outside.

Can I just go back to bed?

Oh yeah my husband is sleeping because he has to go to work tonight and I have kids…no going back to bed for me.

So I blog…

My teenager even had wrestling practice to return to today and will be leaving for a match for a couple days….IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE WINTER BREAK.

My kids got a new gaming system for Christmas, and my husband is sleeping so if I even want to watch tv it has to be on my iPad with a set of headphones in my ear.

I bought some adult coloring books but hate the pens that came with them and it’s just too damn cold and snowy to go to the store to get some colored pencils.  I know….whaaaaa!   I should be grateful for the Christmas day I had yesterday…and I am…guess I just wish I could have a repeat button.

New Year’s Eve is approaching fast…2015 went by so fast that even as I was looking at pictures from last Christmas it seemed like it was just yesterday. happy birthday
This is the last month that I will have a 5, 4, and 3 year old as my mini monster B will be 6 in a couple of weeks.

I look forward to our 2016 adventures.  The new plans is which I plan to carry out with my health, happiness, and marriage.  Getting back in the saddle of a regular blogging routine.  Getting a list of projects put together in an actual list and getting them completed.

In the meantime….for just a moment…I am going to stare at my 5, 4, and 3 year old with the Santa of 2015.

  1. It does leave you feeling a bit empty the next day doesn’t it? All the time getting ready and feeling the Christmas spirit and poof gone just like that as you finish your meal and sprawl out on the sofa.

  2. It’s a lovely picture you shared with your adorable children. The melancholy feelings that come after Christmas pour over me too. I loved those moments of magic as no one fights, everyone plays, and everyone’s bellies are full and the mood is content. I find a good book, a cup of hot chocolate, and my electric blanket cure my after Christmas blues. Wishing you better days ahead. 🌟

      1. It’s understandable Christmas is fun but also sensory overloading. We’re taking some down time to enjoy a movie and get back to some quiet activities. I find the full moon affects starting to wear off a little more today. 😊

    1. So far so good. Hubby just informed me that he’s sick again with sore throat and body aches … He worked last night so I’m sure it was miserable for him. I’ll be off to the store to stock up on airborne, vitamin C, and flu medicine. Think I will keep the decorations up until New Year’s Day…they’re just so pretty


    1. You somehow got planted into my spam folder so I apologize for the delay in response to your comment. 2015 went by like the blink of an eye but it seems like ever since I turned 21 they always have. I took my stuff down after New Year’s as I wanted to enjoy it just a little bit longer. Now it looks so damn bare in here.
