I am slowly recovering from the familial visitation rights called Thanksgiving.  My father, stepmother, brother, sister and nephews came to partake in the annual feast with my husband and kids. We had a really great time. But I don’t think I can do it again so soon.

I just got a call from my sister-in-law who warned me that Christmas is just three weeks away. Now, I know that my husband just put up with my family for a week. I barely made it so I’m not even sure how he survived. We started tasting wine at noon.

I think the holiday spirits are going to be enjoyed earlier and earlier ’cause I really don’t know how I’m going to pull it all off – gracefully. I know I can pull it off. We might all end up enjoying the three day meals in the loony bin but I can pull it off. It’s the “gracefully” that kind of upsets me in a way.


More on keeping up the holiday spirits later….
