I am a creature of habit.
I prefer to do my chores on specific days; just like I prefer to organize my blog by specific topics for specific days.
Holidays totally fuck up my routine.
However, I can deal with that by having certain routines in place for holidays – like when I get the Christmas cards out in the mail; when I have finished the shopping, etc.
Life has kicked the snot out of my holiday routine, and the holidays have kicked the snot out of my day-to-day routines.
I feel like I am holding on by the tippy tips of my fingernails – and those are getting ready to splinter and break off.
I know, truly, that I have a lot less to deal with than many others; but I am about at my personal limit.
I know “this too shall pass”.
It is one of my favorite reminders for when I am overwhelmed.
But “this” needs to get its ass in gear and start passing.
