“Bah Humbug!” This morning my sister Sheila called and said, “I don’t have the swine flu but I have the “Bah Humbug” bug.” Hmmm… perhaps we should form a Bah Humbug Club…. cause I’m feeling the same way.
Perhaps it’s because the weather here is sunny. Maybe it’s because I don’t have my Christmas shopping done, which I usually like to have competed by the end of October. Possibly it’s because this year my budget is tight. Perhaps it’s because I’m getting older and all the “foo foo” isn’t as important to me as before. Oh…. Bah Humbug!
I’ve always been one who as advocated simplifying the holiday season but has never be able to follow my own council. I do get a bit better every year. This year I’m cutting back to brass tacks… no “foo foo.” (except for the cute metal star hanging on my front door my sweet friend Stefanie brought by.)
Hmmm. Maybe that’s the reason for the “Bah Humbug,”… no tensile, no tree, no lights. I think what I’ll do is pack up my things and go visit my daughters who are masters at the “foo foo.” Their homes are decorated to the hilt and is so inviting. Hmmm… holiday spirit… ya think?
If you’re feeling the way I do this year perhaps we should form a Bah Humbug Club and get to the bottom of this miserable state. In the mean time…Christmas shopping still needs to be completed, so off I go.
Insightful Humbug Nana
P.S. Perhaps… I need to get off my humbug duff, look around and just be grateful for what I have… my family and friends. Maybe the “Bah Humbug Club” could be one of service. Hmmm…. brilliant idea?
