Darn. I missed Christmas again. Partly because I lost my calendar for awhile. But I should have been reminded by all the decorations appearing right after Halloween. Factoria Mall was really decked out and Walmart and others were selling Christmas trees in plain sight. Duh. I have been wandering around in a stupor. Thanksgiving came on its earliest date so perhaps I am not the only one surprised by the premature cycle this season. At least I did not have to buy presents and send out Christmas cards. I expect all the Christmas decor will be replaced this weekend with Valentine promotions. Time is speeding up for me so I am consoled that it will probably seem like only a month before next Christmas rolls around.
