I'm dreaming of a white Christmas!

But I know I'm not going to get one. I just want to ski! I need to move to Colorado. Anyway, Christmas is two weeks from tomorrow. I never got into the Christmas spirit this year. I blame it partly on the fact that it been an average for 60 degrees for the last few weeks (except two days of bitter cold last week). I have a tree (though it's not decorated yet, hopefully tonight!), Christmas lights, I've been Christmas shopping, but I'm still not there. I don't think I'll be really into it again until I am done with school. It's hard to get all into Christmas while studying for finals and writing papers.

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
So since I'm not dwelling on Christmas, I will move to New Year's. I'm actually not looking forward to New Years this year. Mostly because I don't want 2006 to end. 2006 was a really great year for me. I made the best of a really crappy ski season last year and got some decent days in, I bought the condo, got a promotion and a decent raise, I got married, I survived a 40 hour trip to Aruba, more importantly I spent 8 days in Aruba, I had a really great summer and got some good beach days in, even my most hated season, fall, wasn't bad. And now it's over. 2007 will not be as good. I'm not getting married. I'm not going to Aruba. Who know how often I will get to go skiing and go to the beach. I'm not forseeing any promotions next year - which means I can look forward to a possible cost of living raise, and that's about it. There are no tropical vacations coming up. In fact there are NO vacations coming up. And I don't even get any time off from school this summer - After I go back in January, I go straight through till NEXT DECEMBER. God I hate school. But that is a different blog. So 2007 is guaranteed to not be as good as 2006. I don't even want to celebrate the passing of 2006. Plus in 2007 I will turn 26! ugh.
So, I have no desire to celebrate the passing of 2006. Nor am I feeling very Christmassy. Bah Humbug.

I say we have a memorial service for 2006 on New Years eve. We can mourn its passing.
