I never thought that I'd feel this way. Especially with all the blogs out there setting the scene for Christmas. It feels as if everybody is blogging about the tree, the shopping, and all the other preparations. Many blogs have even put on a Christmassy background. It makes me feel like I'm looking into another world where Christmas is about to happen.
I started looking forward to Christmas about a month ago but now, there doesn't seem to be the same feeling of anticipation. I probably could have done more to help it but I didn't. I chose not to get a tree because I didn't want to have to stop Aaron from destroying it. So, while I'm enjoying the Christmas carols that I play repeatedly for Aaron, thats about the only thing we've done in this house. I'm kicking myself now for not getting a little tree. Yes, I know, Christmas is more than just about a tree but it helps.
Out and about, nobody talks about Christmas. The shops aren't decorated in any way. There was one store with Christmas carols playing but that wasn't enough to bring any mood to the place.
Maybe its the fact that I don't have a big family reunion to look forward to. This year, my parents will be in Brisbane, my brother in Canberra and we will be in Kuala Lumpur.
I shouldn't just sit here and moan about it. I need to do something. Otherwise, it will be a whole year before Christmas again!!
Here is a photo from last Christmas. Aaron couldn't even sit up back then.
