Christmas is nearly over

December 26th, 2014 at 12:49 am

It's early Christmas evening. The day is winding down. Kind of makes me melancholy. All the excitement and planning and it is almost over.

Like about every Christmas, I get something like bronchitis. I think it has to do with being asthmatic. Yesterday was not a good day. I'm feeling better, but still have a ways to go. I was disappointed to miss Christmas Eve service last night, but somehow didn't think it would be wise to go for both my sake, and the other people in the congregation.

We had a low key Christmas, relaxing and nice, with a fine dinner. We opened presents and I had the luxury of reading a mystery this afternoon.

The paper had a bunch of ads for after Christmas sales. I know my email was blowing up with ads. At this point, I'm not sure there is anything I could use even if I felt like shopping.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

    Hmmm, because you get sick at the same time every year could it be allergy related? I've heard that real trees are covered with mold and spores.

    I often get melancholy on Christmas Day, too. It can be so anti-climactic. All that build-up, for a day that always has its bumps and warts, like any day. I think my favorite holiday is New Year's Day, because I just love a fresh start!

    Wowitsawonderfullife, I wondered the same thing about the tree, but last year we didn't put up a tree and I still was ill. I think it is just job stress and lack of sleep and I just fall apart.
