Holidays

The holidays are over. Tree is down and wrapped up for next year. The gifts are almost all put away. The wheels are in motion to get things back to normal. Dealing with two sets of divorced parents is not easy. Having to be here and there, expected to have the beans in certain places at certain times. Doing what you can to make people happy. I am not sure that is what it is all supposed to be about. The stress of family, getting the right gift, meeting up with friends, doing this special activity or that one, and the biggest one when people give you gifts that you have not bought gifts for! I think my house was a bit more Christmasy when we were taking the tree down.

Nothing like the holidays to spread some cheer. I am already formulating a plan for next year. It will just take some convincing to get wifey on board.

NYE right around the corner. Plan safe.

Tomorrow is my first awkward Tuesday. Yeah.

I hear you loud and clear about the running around stuff. We just tell our parents to go eff themselves and sit in the house all day on Christmas because it just sucks so much. I hate the stress, and I hate that I end up hating my family on Christmas if I have to run around and see them. We do Thanksgiving with some, Christmas Eve with some, New Years Eve with some, we have our big holiday party to get everyone together and then Christmas day we tell everyone that Christmas is just for us. It's glorious.

I've been considering moving in with my boyfriend for the sole purpose of "having Christmas at my house" and being able to stay home.
