It is now snowing heavily in Katonah and everything is beautiful. Our afternoon plans cancelled and so I am going to go take a nap. Got the electrical supplies at HD needed for the extra outlets, etc for work being done next week, got groceries, and ready to not be snowed in but enough snow not to go out. Cars spinning out all over the place. Got the dog into the vet this morning. So far, nothing left but inside chores and netflix. I even made soup from the hambone from HoneyBaked...

 

all is well. will not get to Costco for amex application but so it goes... will do it in January nonetheless.

Good luck with your Costco Amex app! I'm sure you'll do fine on that one. ;)

The nicest thing about "the holidays" is the end of them. i dread them (starting with Halloween), cringe at most of the stuff, and then I am relieved when I have survived New Year's Eve, horns and all. The maudlin emotions in endless print ads, hundreds of hard sell emails, tv specials, some overdone decorating, non stop carols, and the exclusion of those who are not in a good space emotionally is rather terrible for me. And there is terrific financial pressure on many who cannot afford to be generous.

I am in a good situation these days but I know many who are not... and I was once one of them. To all of you who are just surviving, just barely, and celebrating no snow as it means less fuel oil and shoveling and salt purchases... I was there. My greatest joy is to be able to be generous to those who really need it and to make someone's day and create a little space of lack of financial fear and anxiety.

I still find a heavy snow quite magic and the smell of a fireplace inviting, but what was once quite unique and looked forward to seems to have changed for me dramatically. I wish I could recapture some of it, or perhaps just its illusion... I still love decorating a tree now and then and having people over for a special dinner but the drama of dashed expectations has taken its toll...and more and more I hear the same from others.

Am I the only Scrooge on here or are there others who are thankful for what they have but wish that it was not so institutionalized?

I do apologize to any who are offended by this but I wonder how many others here share some of these feelings...anyone with small children who still believe in magic are exempted from this discussion!

 

Amen!

I certainly hope I don't have to pay for the Costco!

New Years is ok. We have some friends over, imbibe a bit, and be generally thankful we made it another year with our health and sanity in check.

So, hanging out with your friends at a little party alive and healthy is just ok?

It's certainly better than the alternative. I do thoroughly enjoy myself, and it's well deserved for sure. Ok may not have been the best word to use
