Need a Little Christmas?
I'm having a hard time getting in the Christmas spirit. Normally I would be cleaning and decorating, feeling the peacefulness of the snow fall, and be prematurely excited over the coming holiday. So far this year it has been quite stressful. It's difficult for me to relax with my husband being laid-off. I'm afraid to go shopping in case I need the money for bills or groceries.
My kids are wonderful. They bring so much joy to our lives. I love working, which for me is knitting and crocheting. That takes my mind off of things for awhile, but I need to find something else to help me destress. I may dig out my yoga mat later. There's too much ice on the trail for a good run. Maybe Santa will bring me a treadmill some day? Exercise usually helps, as long as I am consistent at it.
So, how about a little Blog Therapy?? And a BLOG GIVEAWAY!!?!
I've never done a blog giveaway, but I have this cool vintage Christmas apron that I showed you in an earlier post. I'm not promoting my shop or asking you to tell me what your favorite item is, or anything like that.
To enter to win this lovely vintage Christmas apron, please give me your advice on the best ways to destress. Leave a comment on this blog and be sure that your comment links back to your blog, or give me a way to contact you if you win. I will pick a winner at random from all the entries on this post on Saturday, December 13th. Thanks for entering...and be sure to tell all your friends to stop by and enter too. And thanks for the blog therapy!
