I'm Definitely Having A Blue Christmas!
I'm sitting here in a blue funk. I don't want to do this anymore. My house is a mess; it's hard to clean from a chair. The kitchen is a disaster from yesterday's all-day baking. Tonight my 6 year old is going caroling with 8 of her friends and then back here for hot chocolate and cookies WITH parents in tow! But my 6 year old refuses to do her chores. She's parked in front of the TV. My 31 yr old daughter stays in bed all day, everyday. I'm broke. I don't even have money to buy wrapping paper for the little bit I do have for Christmas. There won't be a stocking for Gracie cause there's no stocking stuffers! And the thing that is bothering me the most is that I can't send the Christmas package to my granddaughter in Ohio. We have a special bond. I raised her the first several years of her life and she trusts me. But there won't be any Christmas from her Nanny. And that is tearing my heart out and bleaching my soul.
When will this end?
