December 2nd and I'm already battling the holiday "blues". I'm not really blue as much as I've been watching the cooking shows and holliday shows on TV and I start getting intimidated and overwhelmed because my decorations are not going to be that perfect or creative. My turkey will not be that moist or golden brown... worse yet, I don't even make a turkey dinner for Christmas. The holidays movies on the Hallmark channel where everybody falls in love and has the perfect relationship and the perfect holiday while sipping the perfect cup of hot chocolate. Perfect relationship? Heck, we're not even on speaking terms right now. So, I can give in to this feeling of failure and imperfection which seems magnifed from December 1st through January 2nd -or - I can stay away from the Hallmark channel and the Lifetime channel on TV - get myself together and enjoy the bright lights and Christmas music that always make me happy. I'm not giving into this "perfect Christmas" garbage this year. I won't!!
