Disgruntled Christmas

Merry Christmas! Joy to the world and all that cheer. Instead of feeling full of good will to men, I feel stressed and burdened. So much to do, so many kids, so little time.

I go to work angry because I have so many other things to do and it's just another obstacle in the way to my ultimate happiness. Ironically I can't be very productive at work due to constant interruptions, meetings and distractions. I want to request to work from home but I don't like to seem like I want special privileges. I'd like to cut down on my commute and gas money and childcare. Not to mention frustration.

The other day I felt so anxious about all I had to do, I felt like I was going to pass out. Then I was so happy to see my five year old sing in her school's Christmas performance and that cheered me up. It helped remind me the true reason for the season and God's love for us. I love all the songs about baby Jesus in the manger and the gifts He brings.

On the other hand, I dislike feeling pressured to shop. I hate what happened to the children of Sandy Hook and my heart breaks for those families. I hate watching the news and I especially dislike L.A. news programs. I despise the newscasters' skanky fashions and obsession with celebrity news and crimes. There'ss no end to the bad news shit storm. Put away your cleavage, short skirts and stripper shoes chicks and get to some real news.

This next week, my family and I are on the road Griswold style. Pray that we survive it! We hit the road this morning and just barely made it out of L.A. Soon we will be in rain and then snow. Hooray for winter weather! I can't wait to be back in the Great Northwest!
