Happy Hectic Holidays!
I was just trying to figure out how I am going to finish my shopping, get the house in order for company that's staying the week and attend all of our friend's holiday gatherings, when a text comes in this morning inviting us to yet another one. My tendency is to ask if they could possibly change their date (they are very close friends) to January and then I realize I have already postponed many appointments, meetings and dinners to the first week of January. OOPS! From a catering standpoint, our busiest time is December so we are very thankful for that. It's all holiday parties all the time with a few weddings sprinkled here and there. It's a festive time of year and that causes everyone to want to dress up, go out, eat good food and drink delicious adult beverages. HOWEVER, it's also a time of worrying about getting it all done and wanting it to be over so one can relax. Which are you? Are you completely organized so you have the entire month to attend parties and not worry or are you like me, running from party to party, picking up gifts on the way and hoping somehow the house will clean and decorate itself while you're away? Either way, reward yourself by picking and choosing what is important to you so you don't go on overload like so many of us do at the time of year. Having a new granddaughter this year, I realized that I can't do it all and if I do what's important to me and the family, we'll all feel better. The parties will most likely happen every year so maybe next year, you can go to the ones you missed this year and vice versa! And on that note, we hope to see you at one of those many fun parties!
Be safe and have a wonderful time this month!
