Saturday 9 -- Holiday Cheer

1. Does the holiday season stress you out? If yes, how do you cope? Yes, it stresses me out. I never seem to have enough time or energy to get everything done. I cope by trying to forgive myself for the areas where I fall short.

2. Are you ever so busy in December that you have to force yourself to chill? Not so much to chill, but to stay in the moment. I should enjoy who I'm with and what I'm doing, not fixate on what I haven't done.

3. Do you sleep well at this time of year? Well, it's pre-dawn and I'm doing this meme ...

4. Have you ever taken a sleigh ride? If yes, tell us about it. No. I mean, I've never taken a sleigh ride, I'm not petulantly refusing to talk about it.

5. Do you live close to the parts of your family you spend the holidays with? My mom, my kid sister and her husband, and their 2 children are all within a half hour. (Unless it snows a ton on Christmas Eve. One year I was on a bus for more than 45 minutes, and it hadn't even left the parking lot.)

6. What will you have for Christmas dinner? I don't know. That's up to my mom and sister.

7. Do you diet after the holidays? Not really, though I should. I will resolve to exercise more and become healthier.

8. What’s the best part of the season for you? Reconnecting with friends and family.

9. How many generations of your family get together during the holidays? Three

  3. I want a sleigh ride *stamps foot*, LOL!
