Holidays and Me

To say that I am not really great at holiday time would be an understatement. I guess it has something to do with being shuffled about between houses and states when I was a kid during the holidays. Like I was some package, put on  plane and sent some where else.

When the kids were small I really tried hard to get back into the holiday ‘spirit’ but it was really difficult. So many things that really did not help and made it worse for me. So, it is not surprising that during this time of year, I retreat into myself and sometimes don’t really peek out until well after New Year’s Day.

Sunday, there is a Christmas party for Doug’s work and this year it is at a bowling alley. Which is fine with me, means I do not have to get dressed up for anything. Yay. I am all for that. Meaning that I do not have to get new clothes for this event and I can wear jeans, because it is a freakin bowling alley. LOL.

So, if I disappear for an extended period of time, it  is because of that.. Ciao!
