Christmas is coming.
Oh my. This year--please, please forgive me--I think I'll skip Christmas.
Ok, ok.... At least I'll be very bare bones about it.
See, there's just too much on my plate right now. You know, the whole my-life-is-up-in-the-air thing. I mean, if our house passes inspection, we'll most likely be moving to a rental house the week after Christmas. Escrow closes around January 7th, but I've a feeling we'll be out of here sooner.
At least we've decided we'll just rent something nearby this winter and then make the Big Move in Spring or Summer. At least, that's our plan. Who knows? Plans have been known to change. But you've gotta have some kind of plan, otherwise all you have is fog. And trust me, in 2007 I've experienced way too much fog concerning my future.
So Christmas will be very, very non-complex around here. I've never really had problems with saying "no" my whole life (some people just are like that). And well, this will horrify some of you whose blogs are already oozing Christmas crafts and gifts and anticipations, but mostly I'll be ignoring Christmas this year. For just one year. The only time I've ever skipped 'Christmas' as the world knows it.
I think Jesus will understand. It's everyone else who may have a big problem with it. But oh well. You've gotta know when to say when.
And today, I'm saying when.
