I do not see why this blog should not go All Christmas All The Time for the rest of the week. After all, Friday is Christmas, it’s practically here! (Said in a Boris Karloff narrating How the Grinch Stole Christmas voice.)
At times, I fear, the Christmas spirit eludes me. Today I spend some time stressing and obsessing about all I need to get done before the end of the week. Then I stressed over the fact that I was stressing, because, dammit, I’m supposed to be enjoying this! I LIKE Christmas! I like to give presents! I thought I had planned better than this. I hasten to add, I am not completely without the Christmas spirit. I get it in spurts and try to enjoy it while it lasts.
As I pointed out yesterday, it is difficult to talk about my gyrations preparing for Christmas without giving away key points about presents I may or may not be giving (already I’ve said too much). However, those gyrations (that word is so descriptive of my life) are the reason I am posting this later than I like to and why I did not write something earlier while at work (on a BREAK, I hasten to add). Oh, I know, I could stress about Christmas and still write a blog post. In theory at least. The fact is, I did not.
After work I had three stops to make. I can mention one, because it did not involve anything Christmasy: I went to The Medicine Shoppe in Ilion to pick up a prescription. Of course, there is also no need to expand upon that, because as I have often observed, people who go on about their health problems become tiresome (I know, it almost never stops me, but I try to keep it short) (I said TRY! Sheesh!).
Where was I? Oh yes, a brief shout-out to the Medicine Shoppe. I called in my prescription renewal to their automated line last night and my prescription was waiting for me after work this afternoon. How cool is that? They are also super nice there.
After the Medicine Shoppe, I made two more stops that were Christmas-related. They were relatively successful. I would love to go on, especially about the second stop, BUT… Perhaps I will revisit the subject in January. In the meantime, I continue to chase that elusive Christmas spirit.
