As a kid, Christmas couldn't come soon enough. As soon as Thanksgiving had passed (and I mean that quite literally --think Black Friday morning), we were begging to bring the decorations out and get a tree to put up and decorate. Overkill, much? Yeah, just maybe.
Now it's not so much waiting for the event, the decorating, or the food as it is waiting for the time off of work. Even in a job you love, the time between NOW (whenever that maybe) and THEN (the mystical time off of work for a holiday) is i-n-c-r-e-d-i-b-l-y long. Not even I'm-a-twelve-year-old-kid-who-can't-wait-to-die-of-asphyxiation-thanks-to-a-pine-allergy incredibly long. It's like the time is moving so slowly that it feels like we're almost moving back in time.
Happy Holidays and (to all you working folks) hang in there. A day off is coming soon.
