This holiday season I have found myself channeling my brother. The one who takes everything in stride. The one who can easily dismiss things that aren't his concern as actually not being his concern. And mean it.
I have to say, being my brother is AWESOME. When someone says something negative I don't assume that they are targeting me. And even if they are, I figure that is their problem and not mine. Freaky!
Sledding this morning. Comedy of errors trying to find a place to do so.
Dinner this afternoon with family. Relaxed for the most part. Didn't stress out about stuff really.
I am beginning to think that exchanging gifts should be adamantly optional. Not forbidden. But equally fine to give or not to give as the spirit moves you, as time and budget allow, and whenever the heck you want to.
Crap: gotta stop typing
