- At least all my gifts will arrive on time, and I managed not to overdo it on the gifts. Everyone enthusiastically agreed to keep things simple and mostly buy just for the kids this year, which relieved a lot of pressure off of me.
- With all the shopping I have been doing for others, I’ve been able to find quite a few neat things for myself too. I don’t feel bad treating myself at all. I definitely deserve it after the year I’ve had.
- It may be winter and the holidays may be a bit depressing this year, but at least the weather is cooperating. If it weren’t for the snow already on the ground, I’d have thought we were heading into spring. I have my fingers crossed the sunshine sticks around for a long while.
