I Hate Christmas

I decided not to post anything about the holidays before the holidays because I didn't want to further bum anyone out who was already kinda bummed out.

I hate Christmas.

Well, maybe I don't hate it, I just don't care for it.  Christmas is just....meh.  Why?

I have no children.  This is stating the obvious.  Christmas is such a child centric holiday and I just feel left out most of the time.  I also have no nieces or nephews to dote on (although I'm still unsure if I will be able to muster the grace to dote on nieces or nephews when that time comes)

I don't get any presents.  My family has evolved from presents to trading names to trading gift cards to nothing.   We decided that spending time together was more important than gifts.  The only problem is that we forgot that we really don't enjoy each other's company that much.

I hate the coworker-gift-dance-of-awkwardness.  It's obvious to me that some folks enjoy buying gifts for their coworkers.  I'm just not into it.  If you get me a gift, then I have to run out and get you a gift.  I hate it when someone gives me a gift and I haven't gotten them anything.  Gift giving at the office is like orgasms.  It's best when it happens simultaneously.

I think that the best I can say about the holidays is that they are over and I survived.  I hope you did too!

I hear you. Here's to surviving with as much of our sanity intact as possible.

Glad that's over! Now on to the more enjoyable adult holiday of New Year's Eve!

I have kids and I still hate Christmas. Everyone said I'd start to like it when I had kids and it hasn't happened. So much unnecessary STUFF, so much wasted money... and I find it so annoying to have to return holiday greetings. Ugh. And I didn't get any gifts either... .

Amen. Christmas without children sucks. But, to be honest, Christmas with a gaggle of sugar-hyped, exhausted, screaming children (none of whom are yours but are your nieces/nephews so you have to love them) isn't any better.

Christmas with my family is always more drama and tension than anything else. Here's to 362 long days until the next time we have to suffer through it!

"Giving at the office is like orgasms. It's best when it happens simultaneously."

Brilliant statement!

All the rest...yes, understand completely.

I'm sorry it was so unenjoyable. Hopefully New Years is more your speed. If not then at least it's 11.5 months til it comes around again!

Christmas......I really like the tree and cookies. That's about it. Hope 2012 is a wonderful year for you and please update us on your puppies.

Love your discussion of gifts. Personally, I could care less if I get anything. At this point, we buy what we want when we want it. I especially hate getting gifts that we won't use or don't like from family - ask me for a list of ideas and pick something off of it.

I shouldn't laugh but couldn't help it when you said "we don't like spending time together" That made me smile.

Glad you survived the holidays...as sanely as possible.

It's funny, but the "I don't get any presents" rankles with me far more than you'd think it would. I got two presents this year from family that involved people spending FAR more than they ought to have, and I am horrified and I feel guilty (and even my husband spent way too much and I feel bad about that). So I definitely know that I don't want to be spoiled, and not everyone in my family has the time or resources to get something for everyone...just the thought would be nice, you know? A CARD. A piece of chocolate. A Christmas ornament. Something. Because I buy presents for SO MANY people and I don't get to see them opened and there's never much under my tree and we look like a fake family and it makes me sad.

I get it. Last Christmas I bawled my eyes out. THis Christmas I was just numb - another year without a BFP. Hoping next Christmas I will have a baby in my arms and you too!

I loved your analogy: "Gift giving at the office is like orgasms. It's best when it happens simultaneously."

I laughed so hard, I nearly peed myself!

Only 360 more days until the next holiday. I hope it will be better for you (and a lot of us).

I'm here from Mel's weekly round-up

Without DR DAHIRU a lot of people would have been dead through heart break. My case is not different from heart break, I am married woman with 3 kids and there was a time when i was having problem with my husband because he was having an affair outside our marriage and this was making me feel bad. So i tried finding solution to my problem by reading a lot of relationship tips on the internet and that was how i came in contact with DR DAHIRU contact details and through the help of DR DAHIRU at arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com my husband left the girl he was having affair with and he came back to me and our kids. After a job well done by DR DAHIRU i felt that it will be unfair if i keep this secret to myself and that is why i am going to drop the contact details of DR DAHIRU right now,or you can also reach him via this email: arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com

my husband of 9 years left me just because i could not give him A child, i did all i could to make sure i give him a child, i even went to an extent of forcing him to have sex with me every night but could not work. not until one evening when i was browsing through the internet, i saw a comment on how a woman in same problem like mine was made home by A man called lord amadi . i read about him and decided to contact him for help, i did as he ask me to do but i was still wondering how can someone just bring back my love he don't even know but i keep doing as he ask me to do. i was very surprise one morning my husband came and started begging me to come back to his life. at first i pretend to be angry then i accepted him back. lord amadi also cast a spell for me to make me have children and as i speak right now i am a mother with 3kids. if there is any one out there who needs his help you can contact him through his personal EMAIL: lordamadi@outlook.com. phone: +2349066148726. i wish you good luck

I was married at 32 and immediately tried to get pregnant. When I was unable to conceive I had blood tests for fertility and was told that I had an FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) of 54 and would not be able to have children. Even though the doctors knew that I had been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis since age 25, no one bothered to check my thyroid levels. my TSH was measured at .001. My Synthroid dosage was lowered. a friend advise me to contact a spiritualist who help with fertility with his medicine, i collected his contact and explain my situation to him he prepared for me a herbal medicine which i took as describe by him. became pregnant very quickly, I had a successful pregnancy. I have my baby august 2017. to get pregnant at age 35 with my 2nd child in september 2019, thank you sir , this is his email contact if you require his help babaka.wolf@gmail.com or Facebook at priest.babaka

My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr jeffrey can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr jeffrey . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:

I am very grateful to this great spell caster who brought my ex husband back to me. This testimony is an amazing one and my name is Renato Sanchez. When i came in contact with this man it was also through a testimony written about him and i have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most inner most feeling many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent for almost 6 years and though my ex husband was far away from my kids i still wish someday he will return back to me. This spell doctor i encountered known as Doctor UZOYA helped me with my wishes and i am happy to say that i am back with my ex husband and i am very happy sharing the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. his contact address; driraborspellcaster@gmail.com OR call his Whatsapp number on +1(301)909 8775. thank you so much Dr,UZOYA
