Can you relate? I sure could over the holidays! There I was happily waddling along with all my ducks in a row when BAM! Holidays.
Each little duckling here represents some aspect of my life that was out of control: the kidlings hopped up on christmas wishes and sugar cookies; my vicious cycle of comfort food/guilt/more comfort food; no time for writing or reading (this alone can send small children and animals running for cover in our house). Well…you get the picture.
Things are calming down now. The whirlwind is over and sanity can resume (as soon as the Christmas and New Years Eve decorations come down). I really need some prevention tips, though.
How do you all keep your sanity during the holidays? Do all the festivities energize you or drain you?
