Piglet, how stressful for you! When I was working I loved the holidays, but getting ready for the holidays was hard! No matter what, I always seemed to be behind. But when the day came and we were all together it was all good. We love our families, but they can make us just a little crazy-just come here and vent and know you have a sympathetic audience!So tomorrow is my last day before I am on vacation until January 7th. I can't wait. Just so much to get done before I am out of the office for 2+ weeks. We are not going anywhere. Just lots of Christmas and New Year stuff, cleaning and spending time with the kids while they are off.
I finally got all of my Christmas shopping done. Well all but a few things. I went shopping with my mom for like 5 plus hours on Saturday. I was so behind. that was the first day of shopping. I can't wait for the kids to get there gifts. They are truely spoiled.
My mom had a rough day on Sunday as did I. She was trying to get all of us together to get pictures taken. Her friend was going to take the pictures for us and we were going to go them at a local garden store that has a whole scene set up. My brother wouldn't cooperate and my sister was blaming my husband for stuff. We were being flexible but originally asked for pictures early enough so DH can watch our local pro football team play. It was all fine and then my sister said that she can't do it at that time because her daughter works until 2:30 and said "I hope (my DH's Name) would put (my nieces name) over football". We are tick of at her. My bother just said he works but never said a time that might work. I said we could do any time before 4 as we had Christmas at my dad's. I was not the issue they all were. I called my mom and she was crying that none of ever want to spend time with her and don't call. This really upset me and I really wanted to lay into my siblings. I call my mom almost every day on my way home for work and though I don;t get to her house often I invite her to do stuff with us. Like we are going the the Lion King play in August with her. It was just a rough day.
