It has been a long week. I am mentally tired which makes my brain think I am physically tired. I have tried to recollect the last time I just did nothing for a day....nein, nyet, nada absolutely nothing. And I can’t.
Call it seasonal blues, call it holiday overload, and call it down right crazy when you try to cram in an extra 12 hours into an already overloaded 24 hour day. Socializing, being merry, and worrying over presents, “Did I get the right one?”, “Will they be happy?”, “I paid how much for that!!!!?????” and so it goes on and on and on.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am not a Grinch (and I’m not complaining..I’m just externalizing my feelings, yeah, that’s the ticket!!)....although some may disagree. I love the get togethers, I love seeing people that I have not seen all year and I do enjoy watching the family on Christmas morning. I just dislike the rush, the shopping carnage, the madman I turn into because I feel I don’t have enough time to do all the things I should. I get impatient, irritable and loud when it happens.....albeit; I am learning to tone it down a teensy, weensy bit.
