I’m at work this week — grateful for two days off at the end of the week. Years ago I worked in the newspaper business and never had the day after Thanksgiving off. I’ve saved a vacation day so I can have just a bit more time off this week. There is so much to do. Sometimes, I wonder why we do holidays — they just create more work!
Thanksgiving isn’t even over yet and I’m already stressed about Christmas. All the activities, all the presents to buy, wrap, ship. Time to take a breather this week and realize that the holidays are meant to relax, not to stress. I’ll be considering things to drop off our list this year to make it a more peaceful celebration.
