Bad Christmas Attitude

Only two shopping days left, and I still have five presents to buy. And Saturday I'm baking one of the Food Network's butter cookie recipes for about 10,000 people. Okay, not 10,000, but, say, 9,000. Oh, okay ... for about 35. Still, a lot of people! And that really leaves me with only one day left to shop. Oh ... no!

Every year when Christmas is over, I sigh a big sigh of relief. It's over! Yea! I can move on with my life again! I have such a bad attitude today, and I hope it goes away by Christmas.

Bah. Humbug. And several heart-felt pffts. (I promise to work on attitude adjustment tomorrow. Really I do. I'll get better, you'll see.)

Things will get better Zed. I'm in a similar situation but just buying the cookies. To be announced as home made of course...

maybe if you think of all the Christmassy things it will get better. Like lights, christmas colors, smells of cookies, play some christmas music. that will get you in the mood again. It always helps me.

i have the same attitude but it always works itself out by christmas day. thank heavens, 'cause otherwise my family would be getting coal in all their stockings. this time of year is so high-pressure i don't know how we get through it without doing each other in. but we survive, and christmas day is always lovely. just keep that in mind to keep yourself going until the big day

Same to you Mel. Big pffts and a Scrooge face in return. :)

Sans it's just that I told everyone I was making the cookies and that's what they're expecting: homemade cookies. Me and my big mouth. lol

I'll try Teri. But it always works itself out by Christmas eve/day. So only a few more days of being cranky. :) Are you going to your friend's in Collingswood for the big day?

yep, traveling through the woods to Collingswood.

that's what happens when you promise something. I've learned to not say anything and surprise them with my goodness. : )

I'm so going to hell because I have no Christmas spirit left in my body today.

I don't know what happened to it.

It's just gone.

Muppet Christmas Carol always gets me in a Christmas sort of mood.

And you're sending cookies my way, right?! Right?! If not, then I'll be the one with the bad attitude :)

Thanks for your encouragement everyone.

Teri, never ever ever promise. Never. haha!

Java, mine just disappeared too, in a flash, but now that I'm officially done shopping (whether I'm done or not, if you know what I mean), I'm feeling better. I might just be personable by Christmas. It could happen!! Sing Jingle Bells--that helped.

Sushiboy, I don't know that movie--is it a movie or a song? (Yes I'm pathetic.)

Amy, whatever you sent over helped a bit. I might not even smack anyone today. :)

Mixednut, that was adorable. I want each and everyone of those furry babies.

Teena, can I telepathically send cookies? Mmm. Aren't they good? :) If you really really really want cookies send your address to my email:

Look, just get me the same thing as last year and quit your whining. Cookies? Make me some too? Please?
Never mind. Happy Holidays Zed! Hope you get some good R and R time.

Thanks Dale! I hope you have a peaceful, fun holiday as well.

And just keep cutting those snowflakes okay? One can never have enough. N-E-V-E-R!
