Can't wait for the" joyous" season to be over & done with.
too many expectations placed on this one day by society. this time of year we all expect things to be perfect because that is what we are programmed to think and if it does not live up to the television idea of a "perfect christmas" we of course get discouraged and think something is wrong with us.
well, anyhow i hope your day gets brighter
Agreed, I do it for my GKs, that gives me pleasure, they grow up so fast.
kids do grow up fast. my baby is 30. i love the holidays but i know for some it is the most stressful time of the year. christmas is not about material things it is about family-whether by blood or choice.
