I have a bad case of the Christmas blues.
In years passed, I have forced the traditional Christmas experience on the family. It just doesn't work for us. I am tired of feeling disappointed that things are not as they are "supposed to be". They are the way they are and it is time I adjust my holiday expectations. So this year, we are doing things differently. We have opted to take a few days off and head out of town to the beach. Just Matt, the kids and I. No tree. No presents. Just good old family fun. We will walk in the sand, play at the playground, swim in the heated pool. We are going to do the things Waverly & Oliver love to do.
