Etc, Family

I’m glad the holidays are over

I don’t mind the holidays in which gifts are not involved. There’s so much pressure during Christmas time, don’t you think? Buy gifts, write cards, do your duty and divide your time amongst various relatives. The stress and business of the holidays oftentimes sucks the feeling of goodness in the heart. Or maybe it was just me this time of year. Such a sucky feeling.

Most of the time I can turn my mind to the positive bits of the days, but the darker annoying bits have been sprinkling through my consciousness. Alas.

The last three days before today were nice though. I got to spend time with my sister and my cousins and we just hung out and took turns holding the babies. Babies are so cute! It’s funny how at ease I am with my cousins’ kids. It’s probably because they are the babies of my cousins. But even besides the babies, it was great spending time with my sister and my cousins. It doesn’t seem like it’s been a year or so since I’ve last seen my sister. Time just flies.

Tomorrow I go back to work. Just for two days. Yah!
