How did you get here so quickly? I wasn’t expecting you for another few months. Or at least weeks. Your too prompt arrival means that the countdown ticking is getting louder and louder and I don’t think I’m quite ready for it.
I always have mixed emotions when it comes to you, December. You bring around some of my favourite weather and holidays, but I have to get through the avalanche first. Like the blizzard that supposed to come tomorrow, I’m buried in schoolwork and studying instead of snow. How I would love to have time to frolic in your December-ness! Instead my advent is spent simultaneously counting the days until my last exam and until Jesus’ birth. Alas!
December, I look forward to enjoying you after the 21st – but by then you’re already almost over! You better save the best for last or I’ll be sorely disappointed.
If I had a spare moment, I would pine for you like some love-sick heroine by the window. Maybe instead, I will look through the Christmas light-lined window at the snow and then back to my studying. I look forward to spending time with you more completely in 2 1/2 weeks and please, have a glass (pitcher?) of eggnog ready for me.
How do you feel about December being here already?
