Bah humbug

I like Christmas but since we won't be working a full week we still have to do the same amount of work if not more.  It was very stressful today.  I don't know if I can handle another day like this for a very long time. 
I always get a bit nervous/anxious spending time with my in laws.  I've always felt I didn't quite measure up to whatever whoever they thought their son would marry.  It doesn't help that I am overweight and my mil puts a lot of emphasis on looks etc...........
Well I have Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday off.  I will enjoy those days and hope to have a good attitude about going back to work on Friday.

I know, I know.......some folks don't have a job and I should be thankful.  That's hard to remember when you are stressed to the max.


  1. As long as your husband loves you don't even worry what your mil has to say. My first one used to put me through hell because I wasnt her idea of the perfect Italian wife..well duh I am Irish. Once I just learned to ignore it and let it go life became much more peaceful. Enjoy your Christmas

  2. Thank you so much, Judy. I really hope that you and your family can share all of the fun memories you had with your husband. I know it is going to be hard. I remember my first Christmas without my mother. Not the same but close.
    I would love to be eating some of that good sounding food you will be cooking.
