What has Happened to My Post Holiday Blues

This question may sound odd, but I'm truly asking myself....Where are my blues?

You see ever since I was a kid, I would get bummed out on Christmas night...All the excitement was done....No more Christmas movies or music....All that buildup and poof..It's over...This got a little better as I got older...I still had New Years to look forward to...Then at the end of New Years Day the blues would kick in...

But this year it's different....I don't know why, but I got just a slight twinge of the blues X-mas night....But it passed quickly...And honestly New Years I felt nothing...No blues at all.

I'm not sure what to make of this, or why it's happened....Am I growing up...Was I just so busy being Santa, working, feeding guests, hanging lights, and all that other stuff, that I just didn't mind it all being over and done with...It's not like I had a bad holiday season...As a matter of fact, it was great....Am I nuts? Am I depressed that I didn't get any post holiday depression? Is this insanity my new form of the post holiday blues? Should I just go get a beer and shut up?

The beer sounds good.....Maybe it's this blogging thing. Maybe blogging has given me a new and improved outlet for my insanity....I can't believe that in some strange way, I'm missing my blues....WTF!!!

Yeah, I think I'll have that beer....On the bright side The New York Rangers may have gotten out of their funk tonight with a 4-0 victory over the Penguins...
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish basketball team won their 44th consecutive home game tonight 73-67, over Georgetown....And this Ohio State, Texas game is turning out to be one hell of a game....
Me and my insanity will catch ya later,
The Beeze.

Blogging helps me escape from the daily grind, but insanity still is around. I would get much the same way as a kid after all the buildup of the holiday season. As adults, time goes so much more quickly which probably explains some of this, too.

Yeah, I know you're had that beer after posting this! LOL!

i don't know Beeze..i can't personally say i've ever experienced the blues after a holiday. it's usually a bit before christmas for me, that's when i lost my parent's. but i've always had my son & hubby & all my crazy dago familia!

as for my blogging, it in no way helps with my sanity. it adds to my insanity HA, it's all part of my job & my job is insane at times.....;0 fun as hell but totally insane LOL! like any job!

Blues for not being in the blues ... now that's a classic. But for the people in St. Louis, they would love to have the Blues back to what they were.

CK, I kinda figured that your blogging may add to your insanity...Ha!

frank, very true about the fans in St. Louis...I think the front office has gotten things going in the right direction.
