• Holiday Hangover


    Now that the holidays are over, I’m grateful that life is returning to a more normal rhythm.

    The holidays are so chaotic. It seems like Halloween tumbles into Thanksgiving and suddenly Christmas is here and holy shit I don’t have anything ready. We didn’t even get a tree put up this year because we were so busy.

    My Christmas wish for 2016 is to spend the holidays enjoying the holidays and not worrying about a lengthy to-do list.

    The end of the holidays feels like an epic hangover. I love my family and friends. I love seeing them and spending time with them. But oh. my. gawd.

    I ate too much, drank too much, did too much and now I feel drained and just want to hide in my house for a month.

    Incidentally, January is the perfect month for this.

    So if no one hears from me this month, don’t worry. I’m fine. I’m just nursing a holiday hangover.

    Sounds to me like somebody does not like that her jeans are fitting a little tighter than they did in October, and she is lashing out at the world!!! Been on the receiving end of that more than once……….

    You are typical for after Christmas. It took us about two weeks to get over 5 Christmas’ this year. Like I said, it’s been a long long time since I remember working and doing kid things and trying to find time for me. I still have my tennis shoes in a bag due to your Dilley Dirt caked on them. It will probably take a hammer to get it off outside. It was fun for Dad and I to spoil the grands this time of year. It was fun but you are right it’s like a hangover. Love you, Mom
