The Day After Christmas... probably the day I really look forward to from the moment I start preparing for the arrival of the Big Man in Red. I am soo never ready for this holiday, regardless of early I start shopping, planning, or hiding. This is just ridiculous! I have no idea why we do it to ourselves; it seems to be similar to planning for a wedding or similar big event.
The pressure of fixing up the home. The stress of buying the right gift for everyone. And the work that goes into it all is just overwhelming. Some people thrive for this! (I think these are the ones who have arrived) Like they have the reindeer sweaters, the trees are up and lit by December 1st, the gifts were purchased before Black Friday and now its all about focusing on the menu they are going to bake and chef up for the entire family, and most friends. While I am still, on December 26th, looking for any holiday events to visit, they are already planning for the following year.
Yet, I still had a wonderful holiday! Family gathered, and good times enjoyed; my Christmas next year will just have to wait until I am over and done with celebrating this year! I am "just not there yet"! I savor my 26th's the way some cherish the actual day. I look forward to being lazy, watching my kids enjoy their gifts, and having fun enjoying mine; his year takes the cake as I play endlessly on my new Kindle Fire

It was a lovely day over here in "unsure land" hope it was just as wonderful over where you're at!

Who is this Blog For?

This is a blog for all those who are tired of answering those intrusive questions like...
1. When will you marry (or re-marry, if you're like me)?
2. What are you doing with your life?
3. Are you still thinking about children? (maybe they add in the word, "more" especially if you have more or less than the number they think is socially correct.
And my personal favorite...When will you settle down? (Usually asked by the party pooper who believes fun is only to be had by teens or the "still immature crowd").
I don't have the answers, and no one left me a map, so I'm hoping readers do not come to this blog looking for insight. Actually, let this be my disclaimer: I have NO clue what I'm doing in this thing called life. If you're on this ride, you're probably going to get lost with me at some point or another, I guarantee you; but if you don't mind, strap in and let's go!
(if you are completely successful in life, have met all your goals, feel fulfilled in every aspect, or just gave up trying, then this blog is probably not for your reading list; this blog is for those still trying.)
