This is the first time I've had a chance to just sit and open my laptop since Thursday night. I'm not used to all of this social activity, but it's silly for me to write a pity party post since it's all self inflicted! Friday evening we went to see Amy Schumer and it's been all downhill since then. Four family Christmas-related events, two of which were hosted at our house. Plus Christmas shopping, then packing for my California trip this week. I swear Christmas has just got to be a thousand times more stressful when you have to travel on top of all the inherent craziness! I wore this outfit yesterday for a Santa breakfast, last minute shopping, and then Christmas dinner and gift exchange with the immediate family. I honestly didn't mean to wear this for dinner also, I wanted to dress up a bit, but I didn't have a choice because I quickly ran out of time!
I say it's self inflicted because it's my choice to write this blog post for you a half hour before the linkup goes live. It was my choice to book the trip to spend the week with my family. It was my choice to ask for my father-in-law's labor to renovate my bathroom starting this week while we were out of town, prompting me to have it cleared out before our trip. It was our choice to offer our house for the two family events this weekend.
So, although I'd be lying if I said I wasn't deathly tired, I really cannot complain. I should be thankful I have these choices and all of the loved ones that want to spend time with us during the holidays. And I'm thankful for all of you that care what I'm wearing when I'm up to my eyeballs in commitments and tasks! That said, hope you all have an awesome Christmasweek!
