Well, my BFF Caryn and I have been comparing notes:
her family came for the whole week after Christmas while
I stayed home alone with hubby for the holidays BUT
we were both fell in a slump afterwards...AMAZING isn't it!
There is something about the holidays and expectations
whether they are met or not than can trigger melancholy
like ghosts of Christmas past and those yet to come.
Will our family ever be unified or will we be together again?
Both extremes seem to tug at the heart strings; so a few
tears are shed as we lament our life's situation whatever
it is...seems silly, doesn't it? To cry over what you don't
have or what you do have. I do think women are crazy.
Breaking free from slumps is not that easy as I've tried
writing and writing, crying then talking with others, but
sometimes you just have to give your feelings a voice,
own them, then get disgusted with all the wasted energy
AND MOVE ON into the NEW YEAR. My latest resolution!
