Tis the Season.

I woke up to pouring rain,
which normally I wouldn't mind,
except today I had to move a bunch of stuff to a storage unit.
Moving boxes in  the rain is no fun.

I spent the afternoon taking photos of earrings to list in my shop.
I took the memory card out of my camera,
and put it into my computer,
but I put it in the wrong slot.
Now it's stuck in there,
which means I have to find someone who can perform surgery
and get that card out without wreaking havoc.

I should start doing something else,
but I'm having a hard time getting motivated.
I'm weary.

In reading several blogs yesterday,
I'm realizing that I'm not alone.

I think it's because women carry the weight of all that happens
during the holidays.
Three months of planning,
cooking,
shopping,
parties,
wrapping,
decorating
{sigh}.

All that can really get to a person
if they don't take time out to feel the spirit of the season.

I haven't been taking the time,
so I'm going to,
right now.

I need a blanket,
hot chocolate
and Handel's Messiah.

Maybe I'll even sing along.

I had hot chocolate and listened to Amy Grant's Christmas album.
