We had a very nice Christmas and we hope that you managed to do the same.
After all the work and stress of putting on the Christmas day feast – Italian style, we’ve been taking it easy and just enjoying the holidays and the time off.
It seems as though we require more recuperation this year than in year’s past. Not sure why that is. Another year older I guess.
Our girls are home from college and our son has spent a few days with us over the last week, so it’s been nice. We can even add that the annual family Christmas day get together went off without a hitch.
Everybody “played” nicely and Linda didn’t let her sister-in-law get to her – too much.
There was one emotional moment when Linda’s brother Face-timed one of his daughters and then passed around his phone for some of us to talk to her. Linda got a little teary-eyed because our nieces and nephew weren’t spending Christmas with us. When Linda’s brother saw that, he even had to leave the room for a few minutes as he got a little emotional as well.
It’s been fairly obvious that many of you are taking some time to be with family and friends, or just doing whatever – which is to be expected this time of year. I imagine many of you are out taking advantage of the post-Christmas sales as well.
Prior to Christmas we ran a few posts about surviving the holidays and we’ve also sent out some holiday related resources on a few different occasions via email. Considering that focus on the holidays, we wanted to hear how Christmas went for you.
Please share your Christmas experiences with the rest of the blog community – good or bad.
What sort of challenges were you faced with during the holidays that may have been different from last year or any other time of year?
Perhaps you can share how you were able to cope with triggers, emotions, thoughts and any other affair related issue that came about.
If there is anything else you want to share or have questions about, please feel free to throw it out there!
Thanks and take care!
Linda & Doug
