This is it, the last night before family arrives for the holidays. I just got off of work. I go back to work at 6am.
I tend to "WIG OUT" , "STRESS OUT", "FLIP OUT." and generally make those around me want to run away for the night when it comes to crunch time before guests. This year will be different.
I've had a list that I've been gradually chipping away at. Only so much you can do when you're gone during the day. I'm thankful my daughter took care of a bathroom and the livingroom. But there is much left to do before I feel comfortable, as well as laundry and a sinkful of dishes(?). I have 6 productive hours in which to complete it before going to bed at 10:30. The computer is getting shut off as well as the phone.
I will remain calm. I will be pleasant to be around for the next 36 hours. The stress that I have felt in the past was created only by me and no one else. Isn't going to happen tonight.
Not gonna happen
