Ok, here's the weekly update of the Square Toothed/Mountain Man Christmas Project:
I am emotionally exhausted, physically in the gutter, and ready to tuck into that "long Winter's nap" as soon as humanly possible.
Where's the joy? It's there, but just wedged between rush hour traffic, people who make it their life's calling to create problems where none exist, and Walmart.
Walmart? (You may ask.) Think about it--can you imagine a worse hell that Walmart in December? (I can't.)
However, there is hope underneath it all. At the end of each day, we gather as a family and read a Christmas story and then sing a carol. There is joy...
...even in the bleak mid-Winter.
How do you manage the stresses of the holiday season?
