Supercharged Stress

Everything is more complicated around the holidays.

I read a meme the other day that said something to the effect of "there's my everyday anxiety, and my fancy holiday anxiety". That sounds about right.

I don't have any official anxiety, but I feel like I'm busy all the time and always feeling behind. And in December, that certainly doesn't get any better.

Everything has the added bonus of the holidays.

It's not just a road trip, it's a road trip during the busiest time of year.

It's not just shopping, it's holiday shopping.

It's adding Christmas cards and wrapping and decorating to the everyday cleaning and organizing. It's adding obligations to the everyday schedule. It's adding extra cooking to the daily meals.

I hate to be the mom who complains throughout December and longs for December 26. I really do love most of what the month brings. Yes, it's stress. But it's GOOD stress. It's stress that makes the month what it is.

Supercharged stress makes for a superspecial holiday.

And the rest will be all the sweeter when it's all done.
