The four day weekend is a done deal. My husband and I laid way low. We could hardly talk for turning it into a fight! All I hear is babbling about FAMILY FAMILY FAMILY and we have seriously messed up individuals in both of ours. Managed to avoid all of them. Turned my phone off. Took walks, raked leaves, raked leaves and then some more. Low on cash, so didn’t cook up anything fancy, but we did cook.
Bit too much bickering. No one is ever right, we’re both tired of dealing with broken relationships with parents, siblings, etc. that are beyond repair. Wasted arguments about nothing are the worst. If only I could sleep for more than three hours at a time, my attitude would improve. Trying some new pills; promising but they act fast and not for long….
Watched three good movies. I’m doing better planning for Christmas…all the ad and shows devoted to the shrine of FAMILY depress us totally. Bad memories come flying back….in dreams, in questions people just ask to be polite, whatever. All I want for Christmas is a CLEAN MIND, no buying into this idea that purchasing power and A FAMILY means anything other than you have more money than I do, and (I hope) a nice family. I dislike shopping more than shoveling. Unrelated to the fact that the money is GONE.
And how was YOUR Thanksgiving weekend, and plans for Christmas & New Year’s? At least here you can be real about it…..
