It is here...

Have you seen it? Do you feel it like I do? Yes, it is already here: the post-Christmas blues. Today was the last day of the holiday and tomorrow I get back to work. I have been feeling low all day. Sure, officially we are still in the twelve days of Christmas and there is the new year coming. But let's face it: Christmas is done and dealt with and New Year is not really (for me at least) a great deal. So I am officially melancholic. I mean more than usual.

Seems like the time did pass all too quickly! Here, though, we are looking forward to the New Year! Cheer up! Blessings abound!

I am okay with it. I had a good Christmas.

It's just always kinda morose if you're not a) A kid, or b) The parent of a kid.

Now to see out the rest of the long bleak winter.

Yeah, unless I'm traveling or visiting with family/friends the holiday starts to go downhill for me by 3 pm on Christmas Day. I think it's kinda natural considering all the anticipation and excitement leading up to that one day. New Year's has never been a big deal for me. So that week in between always feels a bit like limbo.

I find watching those "This is the Year that was" or similar countdown shows help :)

I never got any x-mas feeling this year, so the blues is off too.
