Getting in the Spirit of Things

November 29th, 2011

Since Marcel and I won’t be home for Christmas this year- we are really scaling back on what we are doing in terms of gifts. We had agreed that we wouldn’t buy gifts for each other because this year has had so many extra expenses, but there are a few things he would really like, so I’ve decided to surprise him with them. I think he has similar ideas for me as well, although he hasn’t come right out and said it.

I find myself trying to get into the Christmas spirit- but so far, other than a little twinge here and there, I’m not feeling it. It’s hard to believe that in two days the first day of December will be here. Less than one month til Christmas..

As it is now- Marcel is scheduled to work both the 24th, 25th and the 31st and 1st of January. He said there is a slight possibility that they will not have to work, but he won’t know until the 15th or so. I’ll make the best of it no matter what, but it would definitely be more fun having him home since most of my local friends will be gone for the holiday season.

What about you? What are your holiday plans?
