Christmas is over. Now I do what every person does after Christmas, put together toys, listen to kids beg to open this or that, eat gross amounts of leftovers, clean and wallow in depression.
What? You don't get depressed after the holidays are over? You are strange.

I always get a little depressed after the holidays, back to the daily boredom, no more holiday magic, wishing I hadn't eaten that much and knowing I have to pack all this holiday crap up, gets to me. Add to that my husband still hasn't had any job offers, I assume because of the holidays, and it is more then my little pregnant head can handle. I am worried about everything. Bills, insurance, the cost of my perscriptions, my doctor's appointments, the list goes on and on. Not great for someone who is pregnant.

My kids had an amazing Christmas. They received so many lovely gifts and some I even love. Amazingly only one is loud enough that I want to smash it into a million pieces.
That itself is my Christmas miracle!


  1. I am right there with you on the depression front...
    The thought of having to pack up all of these decorations and return my house to boring-blah is just too much to comprehend at the moment. I would rather sit lazily in my favorite chair, cover up with a good blanket and read one of the books I received from Santa. Oh! And I am almost done eating my left-overs. New food this weekend!

  2. I'm sorry about the post-Christmas blues. I'm hoping the new year will bring all those HR people back to work so they can hire your husband!

  3. I don't get depressed but I do get a bit manic about getting on with it... the day after Christmas I am ready to undeck the halls and toss out the tree... it's weird, because I am also the person who begins playing Christmas carols on Thanksgiving and is out shopping for a tree on December 1st!

  4. I get depressed around the holidays too. Before / during / after. Take your pick, my dear.

    Sending good job-gettin' vibes your hubby's way. Hopefully we can do the "new job dance" together soon.

  5. I love, love, love how clean it all looks with the tree down and open space restored. Forgive yourself your anxiety...happy new year.
