Timing is everything

Saturday, November 24, 2012

I should have left well enough alone, but I didn't. Last night after finishing up my Spark stuff, before shutting down the computer, I checked my Facebook page to check in with friends and family. I didn't even see it coming and I got sucker-punched. Right in the heart.

So, it really confirmed my decision to start a new holiday tradition.

Had a wonderfully relaxed non-traditional Thanksgiving Day at the coast. Decided to come home a day early to our own hot tub, our own food, our own bed and pillows . . . there really is no place like home.

Let it go.

    I've chosen non traditional holiday's for years, but then not having any kids has made this easy. My family is used to me being the odd one out!
I hope you survive the sucker punch!

    Sorry about the sucker punch. I am with you on nontraditional though. Always have been. While others stress about the holidays I hardly ever feel the stress. Last year we had lobster for Christmas dinner. Honestly it was no more costly than the turkey feast, easier to prepare and clean up, and no tempting leftovers to munch on. One year we went to Maui, drew a tree in the sand. No gifts no muss no fuss. Our family has grown since then, but we do that again in a heartbeat if it weren't for our ailing dog.
Anyway, hope the " punch" hasn't left a bruise. Breathe deep!

    Sorry to hear about this, but despite the sucker-punch, you ended up in a good spot. I sometimes think non-traditional holidays are the ones I remember as best--this year hubs and I decided to kick back and let the drama roll over and around us, but not "on" us. So we did. And it was good! Sounds like you did, too. Take care and I hope you find peace in letting go. emoticon
