Okay the reality it’s the season of stress, spending and gluttony. There is so much to do in these short days its hard to just enjoy it. That’s the problem with coming from big families, so many people to see, so many people to buy for, so much freaking food to eat.
I will do what I can to keep my plate empty. I am not gaining back what I worked all year at keeping off! As for the shopping, Brenda and I took on Black Friday like a Army ready for war. Each store a battle, the only battle we lost was sleep! We were pretty successful this year!
I do enjoy the trill of black Friday and the savings. So I think I would really go no matter what. But I would really love to spend the day in Clinton or Old Forge and go on sleigh rides and such. But its hard, I need that marathon shopping and savings to survive the season. We buy for so many people its crazy.
Last year we wanted to stay home on xmas. Everyone was mad at us. David, I, Tyler and Emma are a family too and yes we are part your family. So they expect their all family at their Christmas celebration. We ended up just running from house to house each day and then on the 26th everyone came to our house, through out the day, to see the kids toys. I had a hard time understanding that since we wanted everyone to come to our house to begin with, but I have come to learn that being an adult will mean you never understand a lot of life.
So this year we are debating Santa coming a day early. He would come the morning of the 24th and we would enjoy the morning as Christmas morning. We would have all day to chillin’ in our PJs and play with our gifts. We have no place to be till 4pm that day. Then on the 25th we would have a slow relaxing morning before going to more people’s houses for celebrations.
So is it wrong to do that, everyone is going to have an option. We will be right and we will be wrong. But bottom line what is best for my kids ?? When my parents divorced santa had come a day early so if does that for divorce I would think he could do it for us to keep world peace!! lol Ahh the stress of the holiday. Drink and be Merry!
