It really doesn’t feel like that to me. I really don’t know when the last time I was in a Christmas mood was. It had to be before my grandfather got really sick. It was always our tradition to go see whatever new release that came out on Christmas. I knew he was getting worse when he didn’t want to go. I think the last movie we went to see on Christmas was the first Sherlock Holmes one. Even after he passed away I didn’t go I just stayed at home. This year I’m bringing the tradition back. I’m going to see Django Unchained and maybe Les Miserables too. So shopping this morning wasn’t so bad. The grocery store was pretty empty. I also got a surprise visit from my niece and nephew. He’s only 5 months and he weighs more than his sister! I’m pretty sure it’s because he’s a greedy little thing. When he’s hungry he screams until he turns red and starts choking on his spit. He would be a good advertisement on why not to have kids. I love him but I was glad when my sister came and got him.
