Default It's over .... the holiday

Is anyone else VERY glad the holiday is over?
How very, very dreadful.
I KNEW if I didn't talk I would be criticized for that. So I tried to talk and, of course, didn't finish one sentence in 6 hours because I talk so disgustingly s-l-o-w-ly and have trouble finding words. That's called stupidity.

I smiled so much I was told I have a stupid smile.
I give up.

I know exactly how you feel. I'm so so glad it's all over but in reality it's only beginning. It's not dreadful it's just how we feel sometimes. And I certainly know what it's like to find words. I'm having a really, really hard time in that area and it's not stupidity. You try to say things that are "right" and try to be so careful that you can't think what to say.

I hope today is a better day for you. And I bet your smile was beautiful.

Jingle,
That's exactly how I feel. I pasted on a smile, even though I am about this far from inpatient treatment, and I didn't say much at my family gathering either. I was just so happy to get home when I saw my apt. building. My family for some reason can't (or won't) understand why I am the way I am, and they think I have a bad attitude when I am just simply struggling to even be around people etc. I am so, so happy Thanksgiving is over. Now, the next hurdle is Christmas. Hopefully, I am doing better by then, because it was h*ll yesterday.

I am glad that its over too. I am so tired that I can't stand it. Made a mistake of getting up at o5:00 to go to Wal-Mart. All the sale items had been bought by 5:30. Apparently people had been there since eight the night before and had already put them in their carts and waited till time for the sale to pay. That is totally unfair . Plus a lady RAN OVER ME with a cart. I now have a strained back and bruised ankle. She couldn't see over her junk and ran right over the top of me when I was giving the greeter lady my receipt to check it off.

Unhappy

I am definitely glad it's over! I did all the work, so didn't have time to talk with everyone. The only saving grace is the grandkids kept me away from everyone, what little time I did find. I just wasn't up to it all, I guess.

Now, Christmas......

Default doing all the work...

Dear Boopers:

Why don't you try having a "pot luck" meal next holiday time? It's too much for one person to do all the cooking for a holiday meal - the varied dishes that are brought to the festive table for a pot luck meal, are fun and delicious. And it gives every person part of the responsibility and puts each guest "on the spot", not just you! I always felt that cleaning the house was harder than doing all the cooking, but I had to do both. That is why I suggest that you try a pot luck approach next time.

Wink Thanks

Thank you Shirley,

I have very much been thinking about this. I am going to try and do it all again at Christmas but then I am going to tell them I can't do it anymore alone. So, I am going to suggest a potluck just like you said. I think it would help me so much as it took a week for me to recover after Thanksgiving. Still, I am struggling.
So, thank you for the suggestion and I do plan on landing it on them at Christmas!!
Take care,
Linda

It seems to me that I have a sweet/sour relationship with holidays anymore. I still get excited about them, but afterward I usually just feel disappointed. I sure wish I could enjoy them more.

((((jingle))))

<---hands idealist a fortune cookie.
hope it's a good one.

take each day one step at a time. it's ok to say no.

booprs...potlucks are great. a fun thing is to sk each person to bring copies of the recipe, i always hated loving a dish..then trying to rember who brought it later to ask.
