Christmas 2006  
I feel as if I'm behind on my Christmas shopping because I haven't got everyone their gifts yet. Isn't that weird? It's not even Thanksgiving yet and I'm having Christmas anxiety.

Honestly? I don't really want to do Christmas this year. I look forward to the companionship and seeing my family and hopefully even enjoying a day or two off from work, but I don't really want to do Christmas presents and trees and cards and singing fa-la-la-la-la. The commercialization of Christmas is absolutely depressing to me, because I've outgrown Santa and I can't just coast through the holiday anymore.

I'm getting sucked into the retail vacuum. First I'll be a sales leader, than a manager, and suddenly my entire career will be retail. Christmas for three months every year - nearly four - is going to drive me batty if the rest of my life is like that. Who wants to spend one third of their life thinking of chestnuts roasting on an open fire?

I am going to see Happy Feet tonight at the IMAX Theatre downtown. That should be fun. Maybe it'll help cure these Christmas blues, at least for a few days.

I have started to make gifts for this year. I have decided I am not going to get sucked in to the whole retail must buy everything this year. It should be about hanging out and enjoying everyone instead of how much you are pressured in to buying/getting. (at least that is what I am telling myself right now)

Have fun at Happy Feet! :)
