I know I've been nattering on about Holiday Depression for weeks, but the dreaded monster will not go away, just like my freaking migraines. Here is a list of things I've done and not done so far with the holidays. It's become a balancing act. Also, I've really been trying to do the "one day at a time" type thinking when I feel overwhelmed.
I put up a small fake tabletop Christmas Tree instead of a real one.
I did manage to get my Christmas cards addressed and mailed in a timely fashion.
I skipped the Christmas reception in the lobby of my work building thrown by the building's management company. It was after work and I was too knackered to deal with it.
I did all my holiday shopping online.
I'm deliberately not listening to Christmas music in my car.
I only brought potato chips to my work's Christmas potluck.
I'm still not sure about baking Christmas cookies this year.
