I don't want to assume what everyone celebrates, but I did want to talk about what your plans are, particularly with how you are feeling, or how you may be feeling.
We celebrate Xmas. I usually make everyone's gifts and do food baskets for extraneous local friends. I quilted some advent calendars in Nov., and boy I'm glad I was on top of it b/c I am super unmotivated since getting pregnant. I'm not sick, or even extremely tired, but I just have zero motivation. I had my plans for the food baskets and they get kind of detailed with a theme and and all.
I could care less right now.
Also, the family we get together with are all in very diff. places right now that aren't conducive to anyone having time energy for much of anything holiday.
So my new plan is: Make homemade choc. Panetone bread and not whole baskets of goodies.
Make the cookies I planned on making for hubby's work.
No more xmas crafting aside from little things with my kids for their sake, not mine.
And the big one I just made a decision about tonight; is to order xmas dinner from a restaurant. This will be the first time for me to do this and I'm actually very excited to just relax. No stress, no huge food shopping, no energy out-put, just eating and enjoying. The rest of the fam. was totally down with this!
As far as anything else, we've decorated inside the house and will take the kids to various activities. But I don't even care if we get our outside lights up this year. I'm in total chill and reserve energy mode. I kind of like it.
Besides who knows how I'll be feeling in a couple of weeks, or even a week. I'm five weeks tomorrow and things could take a turn at any minute...especially that 6 week mark.
So what'cha thinkin about?
