Why is it that when I come to the end of a vacation all I have is a pile of regrets? “I shoulda done this. I shoulda done that.” Why can’t I just be happy that I sat on my rotund posterior and played City of Heroes all week?
Actually, I’m not too much into the “crap, vacation’s over” mood. It’s Christmastime, fer Flying Spaghetti Monster’s sake! We gots parties and singing and shopping to do!
Last night, we went to our church Christmas party and sang carols and listened to the handbell choir (which both of my uber-talented kids are in). It was tons of fun, especially watching the little kids sing their hearts out on Rudolph and his reindeer games (“like Monopoly!”) and getting prezzies from Santa Claus (or a reasonable facsimile thereof).
I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season. Don’t stress out over everything you feel like you have to do (half of which you really don’t). And remember to take the time to stop and listen to little kids singing. OK?
