I'm having a hard time keeping up with things and, even worse, with people! I'm stressing out more and more about the coming holidays, not knowing if I'll be able to be with my family on the day we'll celebrate Christmas. Since we're a HUGE family, we rent a place the weekend before Christmas to celebrate all together. It's a giant mess full of love, of fun and of excitement, very tiring, but I love it! I wouldn't like to miss it, but since it's the busiest time of the year for me at work, I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it or not.
I'd hate not to be there, but on the other hand I have to do what's best for me. If I create more stress by trying to be there at any cost, that's not good either, right? Last year I even got terribly sick while I was there (sinusitis), probably just because my body couldn't handle the travel in addition to the stress it was already under... NOT a good way to enjoy the holidays, believe me!!
Anyway, I will call my mom tomorrow, talk to her about it and try to make a decision by the beginning of december. Wish me luck!!
