We only have 5 more shopping day until Christmas. I want to cry. This year has been so tight. My family has decided to only buy for the kids and there is a $20.00 limit per kid. I'm very glad were are doing that. But you really can't buy to much for $20.00. I want to do so much more but we just don't have the money to do so. I hope the kids understand that it's not about the gifts. I want them to know that we love them and we wish we could do so much more. I wanted it to be a fun filled family time. Singing, eating, playing in the snow. Together as a family being happy is all I want for Christmas.

I am still not in the Christmas spirit at all. This has never happened to me before. I love the Holiday. I get right into it, but for some reason I'm sad I want this sad feeling to go away. I'm listening to Christmas music, watching Christmas movies, and even drove around with my son to look at Christmas lights just to get in the mood. It's not working, what do I do??????????? I just want to cry, how sad is that. My son goes to his fathers house for Christmas Eve, I think that has a little to do with it. Oh where oh where has my Christmas spirit gone???

Man I wish I could help. My only suggestion is to pray. Christmas is really tight all over. Vonnie and I had the same thing. Everyone had $20 and not a penny more. There will be some upset family members this year but they'll live. I will pray for you and your family.
