Where's My Jingle Bells?!

Here we are going into our second week of the Christmas season (so I think) and no tree up, no decorations out yet, shoot we haven't even put away Thanksgiving stuff!! Been busy? Uh yeah. I've also been sick, still recovering from the nastiest bout of recurring shingles I have had in quite some time. I KNOW this is due to stress.

Between caregiving responsibilities and finishing this last week of school for the fall semester I'm stretched. I still have let's  see: One online quiz (25 questions), two online exams (50 questions each) due by tomorrow at 6 p.m. Then I have my final accounting test (counts as final exam) on Tuesday. After that I'm basically done until January 12.

Yes, I'm tired and stressed. I've done everything I can to prevent it. Also the stress of the holidays - who's going to visit, who's not going to visit. Let's all please stay well!

Last year Dad and I were both hit with that superbug virus and I think that was the most scared I've been since I began caregiving. I was so afraid I wasn't going to be able to take care of Dad. Plus, we got sick right before Christmas, I mean, right BEFORE Christmas Eve. So we had to postpone everything we had planned to celebrate. We had to wait at least a week I remember to have our holiday meal, had to leave decorations up longer, etc. Maybe that's what's wrong with me. Un-needed worry?

So far I've watched "The Grinch," "Christmas Vacation" and "Elf" to try and get myself in the spirit.. Hoping somethings going to help soon or my main celebration may be here with you guys.

Who has some ideas to help me? I need them!

Hope everyone is having a good time so far this Christmas. We normally love the holidays and I feel I'm holding Dad back. That's the last thing I want.
