I'm in a really foul mood today. My husband could only laugh during our conversation this morning after he said 'boy, you really are in a bad mood today!"
And it makes me even more in a bad mood to think I'm in a bad mood during the holidays!
I love this time of year. All the decorating, the cookie baking, wrapping packages, celebrating with family & friends...
...well, family I guess. Because apparently most of the people I know are too busy. Too busy to even RSVP for a holiday get together. Not sure why I try to have get together's. I think this year's will be the last. I've never lived somewhere where people don't really care about getting together over the holidays. It's kind of hard for me to wrap my head around.
I hate that excuse. The 'I'm so busy' excuse. I hate it.
Once in a while we all need to give that excuse. But all the time??
I'm tired of people telling me that they're more busy than me because they have more kids than me, or they work more than me, or their kids are older than my kids, their kids are in more activities than mine, etc. I could give you a million reasons why I'm busy.
The thing is - we're all busy. Everyone's life situation is different. That's life. But if you don't stop and take the time to spend it with friends, especially around the holidays, then you're missing out. What will you have when your kids are out of the house and there's no more soccer practices to run to, or band practice, or PTA functions??
Take time to spend with friends during this holiday season. Even if it's just once or twice. Have a cookie swap, exchange ornaments, just get together.
