I've lost my grinch

Gift box
This hasn't happened for many years. I'm not sure what it's about. It's spooking me a bit. It's about the holidays. I'm actually looking forward to them! Not just accepting that it's that time, but completely getting grade school giddy about it!

Other than this pesky health issue, I am incredibly happy. Last time I felt quite like this, I think it was my birthday in 2005. Only...that was a weekend, this has been going on for about two months now and just keeps me all warm and smiles.

I have decided to only celebrate the joy of the holidays this year. I am not going to stress. I've been working on some gifts that may or may not get done. For those presents I do need to buy, I'm not going to drive myself nuts trying to find the most clever gift. I want to decorate my home and my office area so that I'm happy to be in those places, amid pretty lights and sparkly bits.

I will have a tree this year and I will enjoy picking it out and bringing it into my home. Then I will spend an evening with wine and decorations and either a holiday special on TV, or a jazzy holiday CD. I will light candles and I will prepare a Yule log that will adorn my table for the season.

I will not let grumpy things to spoil this for me. It may mean that I'll have to ignore, forgive, and laugh off a lot, but heck, that may just be the key to it all anyway.

First up, Thanksgiving. I cannot wait!

EDIT: What? Just because I had a minor meltdown yesterday doesn't mean I won't rebound in full today. I am made of optimism. I just forget now and then. Why do you keep looking at me like I'm slightly mad? I thought I'd proven that to y'all by now. I'm starkers (stark raving mad, and frequently nude). All the most creative sorts are, you know. It gives us our edge.

Meltdowns are normal when your hormones are in flux from plumbing problems. I had them too. YUCK!!

I was making a play off of Stark Raving Mad, and didn't realize 'starkers' mean nekkid. oddly...it all works!

See, I love Christmas holidays because I do them *my* way. :) Sounds like you've found your way. Go you! Good to see you writing again, btw.

I'm feeling the same lately. I get so freaked out every year because Christmas is also birthday season, and I have so much to do I get overwhelmed. But the past few years I've been cutting back on gifts, and giving more handmade things and spending more time baking and less time shopping, etc. I tend to feel happier about the holidays now because I choose to do the things that I can enjoy and not worry about the rest.

Also, I always thought that "starkers" meant stark raving mad too, and not nekkid. Maybe it can mean either?
