OMG, I did the family holiday thing and on the surface it sounds like such a perfect Holiday. I came home, my Sister and her children and husband came home. My very elderly Grandparents came with my aunt and uncle. We ate Turkey and Ham and sweet potatos, mashed potatos, stuffing, and corn and a nice salad.
But I have to say, this killed me.
My sisters children and somewhat annoying, (bless thier hearts) and she seems to have no energy to marshall obedience… I am worried about my sister as she seems sort of depressed.
My poor brother in law happend to very accidently see me essentially nude as I headed to the shower after my 5K…
I could have cared less, but he was mortified….
My Grandfather is very chronically ill and just seems a bit sad. My Grandmother, on the other hand is sharp as a tack. She is more up to date on current events than I am, and the stress of taking care of Grandpa is showing on her.
I got to leave on Friday and was so tired, I could not make the 5 hour drive home. Instead I took a 2 hour nap outside of Washington DC…and I woke up this morning tired, and spent the day at work tired.
Gotta love my family, but I could have skipped that get together.
I do get to skip Christmas. Thank heavens.
