A bit early, I know.

I don't know what it is. I've never been like this before. Perhaps it's the retail industry's fault. Perhaps it's because this is my favorite time of year. But for some reason, I'm really into the holiday spirit. I can't wait for Thanksgiving, but even more so, I'm really excited about Christmas.

I know it's early. I usually make fun of people who want to get ready early. I usually cringe when Christmas music comes on right after Halloween. But this year, it doesn't bother me. Huh. Weird.

I think my increased spirit is because the holidays are the only time I really get to spend some good, quality time with my family, who lives so far away. And, now that Randy knows that he gets the day after Thanksgiving and Christmas off, I'm thrilled that we'll definitely get to go up north for our holiday visits. So, I'm spreading a little cheer early. I've even begun to make a few Christmas gifts. Cheer and creativity... such a great mix.
