It’s a dark and dreary night. I’m spending my second night home alone. My wife is out of town for work. It’s still one week away from my daughter coming home from college. My son is at his house. I’ve done nothing really Christmasy this year. Last year at this time we were at Zoo Lights at the National Zoo and then went out for dinner. This year, as mentioned above, I’m alone. The dark and dreary weather matches my mood. I can’t seem to get in the Christmas spirit this year.
I dressed up as Santa for work yesterday and had multiple kids get their picture taken with me. It still didn’t get me in the mood to celebrate.
We have our work holiday party tomorrow. Usually, I would be looking forward to some time with coworkers having fun instead of working. I’d rather have a snow day and stay at home alone.
Our Christmas tree is up and next to the couch where I’m writing this. Still not helping.
It might help if all this rain was snow.
It might help if I didn’t feel ill about leaving the house every day.
It might help if I wasn’t alone so much.
It will help when we get in the car and head toward Kentucky.
Only 9 days to go…
