We had seventeen people over yesterday for Christmas dinner and it was lovely. Over the seven hours they were here I had one glass of wine.
Today I feel like I had twenty.
I slept in this morning, but I’m tired.
Today I have my annual holiday hangover. The holiday hangover occurs when I have had enough.
We’ve been out every night this week. Heck, I’ve either been out or had people in every night this month. I’ve gotten dressed up, made up and worn high heel shoes. I’ve baked, cooked and ordered in. I’ve cleaned the house, scrubbed the floors and stashed away toys. I’ve decorated, redecorated, and put up a tree. I’ve shopped, bought and wrapped. I’ve smiled, laughed and told witty stories. I’ve done just about everything I can think of to create great memories of Christmas 2007 and you know what?
I’m really really, REALLY done.
Now I just want it to all go away.
I don’t want to cook. I don’t want to be nice. I don’t want this Christmas stuff all over my house. I don’t want to put together any more Christmas toys and I don’t want to hear any more carols.
The Grinch has arrived.
Happy New Year everyone.
