I don’t know about you, but I seem to simply wear myself out over Christmas. First of all, I worry mightily over the gifts that I’ve bought. Will they be “good” enough? Did I spend fairly? How will they like them? Were they the “right” thing? The list goes on and on. Can I afford all the gifts that I bought?
Not only did I have all the gift worries this year, but I also had the most difficult time making the pie. I always make the pie and the sweet potatoes the day before, since there is all the gift opening, breakfast making and wrapping paper cleaning to do on Christmas, not to mention the three different dinners I had to make this year. My pie crust rolled out exceedingly dry – I had no idea how it would bake. However, that worked out well, and it ended up being quite flaky – which is how we all like it. This of course, just added to my list of worries until we finally ate it last night (in lieu of supper). It turned out fine, of course.
So, on to today, the “day after”. I’m exhausted, emotionally depleted, and in need of a vacation. Is this how you feel? I tell you, thank goodness Christmas is only once a year. I don’t think I’d survive more than one day. I hope that you had a wonderful day with your loved ones. All in all, it’s more than worth the emotional aftermath. Don’t you think so?
