I started to feel that last night before it was even over. Trying to chill today & work on projects.
WE appreciate all that work, I promise you.Very depressed and feeling under appreciated for all the work I put into it (although, I really do most of it for my own pleasure). Just upsets me when people don't take the time to look at everything and just want to drink/eat.
Well, the turkeys are up outside now but the inside ghouls will stay for another week. Not looking forward to climbing the ladder and carrying boxes. Did get 4 dinner parties out of the holiday, however.
Til next year...
I'm planning to put Christmas lights up this weekend. They won't get turned on until Thanksgiving night, but I don't want to be outside freezing. We decorate a little more for Christmas than we do for Halloween. I took it as a compliment this year when one of my kid's friends said that we have more indoor decorations for Halloween than his family does for Christmas.There always is a bit of a letdown after the big day. Thanksgiving for us was in October, so I don't have that to look forward to, but I do like Christmas, but in much more moderation. I put up the christmas lights as soon as the halloween stuff comes down, but that's only because it's better weather now for it. They don't get lit until the last weekend in November, and then I start decorating the house. it's not the same though. Christmas is so much pressure. Halloween feels more intimate to me, it's just mine. No one expects more than a Jack, so whatever else I do is amazing. Christmas you're just required to do the tree, and decorate, and everyone does lots so yours isn't special. And that's to say nothing of gift pressure. It's nice, but it's not the same.
