In the land of broken ornaments

There is a big chip missing from my new Frosty the Snowman music box. Strawberry's miniature moose snow globe shattered to a thousand pieces. (Colin threw it out and even though I told him that it was blog worthy. ~phewy) These broken ornaments seem to symbolize the spirit that I am lacking.

You can read about how I have been feeling at Mommy Blogs Toronto.

HUGS! Hope you are feeling better!

So it's pathetic fallacy when the weather reflects the character's mood... what do we call it with ornaments?

I couldn't agree more on commercialization taking the fun out of the holidays. Hope you find a happy groove soon.

We have a broken ornament graveyard that gathers under the tree each and every year. I feel your pain!

PS: I read your post over at M.B.T. yesterday but for some reason, I had trouble commenting...I enjoyed it, though. Sorry you aren't feeling the spirit this year. If I FedEx'd you a Gingerbread Latte, would that help? :)

will cookies make you feel better?? :)

My mom gave me a box of Christmas ornaments when I first moved out of her house and I smashed every single one of them. I was absolutely devastated...it really put a damper on my holiday spirit.

I hope you're feeling a bit brighter soon. Off to read your post at MBT...

I'm sending you some Christmas spirit over the internet. I don't have much to spare, but I'm always willing to share what I've got. It's the season of giving, right?

I hear ya' - I wish I was a kid again - when Christmas was fun. BTW - I only buy non-breakable ornaments now - I was too heartbroken over the one that got wrecked.

I finally found my Christmas spirit yesterday. Here's hoping you get yours.

I'm off to read your post...

Oh no. And I know you are normally a holiday lover! Wishing you a spirit filled Christmas soon! The lack of white stuff sure doesn't help.

I'm with you....I've just been through a cold and stomach bug. Total suckage. Hope you're feeling better and that you enjoy your holidays. :)
