Thanksgiving and Christmas, New Years are wonderful events to celebrate really. I love all the food!!
The only ones that enjoy holidays:
The ones in denial (or la la land)
The functional (??) families
I loved the holidays at my grandmothers with the wonderful smells of her kitchen and joking with my aunt, laughter of my nephew....later talking to my sis-in-laws over coffee, playing cards with my mother-in-law and husband. Now, it's gone. S*** Jess is right, memories are bad things!!!
I used to love the holidays. Good food. Good people. Everyone could set things aside for the holidays. Any disagreements, problems.. anything would be put aside, swept under the carpet until the holidays were over at least. Then the time came where the holidays didn't even matte.. I didn't, the holidays didnt. no matter how much I cried or begged them to just be happy for me.. just for the holidays.... it all came crashing down.
Now.. I dont know where 'I'm going, who I'll see... what fight or issues will arise this year. It's always something... Will I be able to handle it?
