Since I didn't do anything special for the holiday, I can't figure out why I had post-holiday letdown today. It turned up even before I found out I wasn't going shopping after all, so that wasn't the cause. Maybe it's just in the air. The cold, gray air. But there were geese in the cold gray air this evening, too, which cheered me up just a little bit. I'm thinking I might make some popcorn later, which might cheer me up a bit more.
One week to December. There's little time left for this year to redeem itself. I don't expect that it will.
