It's nice to know I'm not the only one

Anna is feeling that post-Christmas letdown, and it's good to know that I'm not the only one who feels that way. I'm also heartened knowing I'm not the only one who dislikes shopping.

Yeah, I put a lot of work into it this year, preparing early by wrapping the presents and baking. Being sick threw me off a bit, but not by much. I loved watching the younglings open their presents and then going off to church. I like, too, that we're not packing up to go up to Erie. I hate that trip.

I feel so let down because I hate New Year's, I always have. It's just depressing to me, and it's never been a big deal holiday for me. All I can think about are the damn taxes we'll have to do.

Oh, Groovy, New Years is a new start! I don't make resolutions, but it's still a new year and it has to be even better than the last! 2006 better be on the upswing, otherwise, it's the poorhouse for us! ;)

It's disheartening with Christmas being over. I enjoy New Years though. Usually, because of it being so "late", the husband and I are actually able to enjoy it together, and...well...alone. That's the holiday that we try to get away, but this year, we're staying home. Maybe we'll go see Narnia or something.
And, I dislike shopping. I have to agree with Anna about getting something close to a panic attack when I get out with all those crowds. Glad I'm not the only one.

I hate New Years too. New Years Eve means being jolly whether you like it or not, and putting up with drunks. Then there's the crowd in Times Square, which always depresses me. What's the point.

New Years Day--thank God the stores are open!

I hate Christmas shopping, only because of the traffic. I think I did 80% of my shopping online this year. I sort of like New Year's. I mean, what's the alternative? You're going to get older either way, so might as well enjoy it.

The only thing I hate about New Years are fireworks. I never really liked them anyway, and as a kid I was scared to death of them. It seems like such a waste of time to spend money on something that you're only going to look at for a few minutes. Plus the fireworks will probably wake the Branch and Blossom up, which means we WON'T have a fun New Years DAy. Since when did fireworks get associated with every darn holiday? They used to be for July 4th only. Now, Memorial Day, Labor Day, etc, there are stands by the side of the road.
