The Holidays :(

I love the holidays as much as the next person, but I'm not ready for them yet :(
I have recipes to find (and try). Weight to lose, gifts to buy, cards to write (and send), decorations to hang, cleaning to do :( Since Mr. P works crazy hours (and more around xmas time) I will have to do most of it on my own. Since my parents are split, we have to evenly distribute holidays between 3 families so that means 3 Thanksgiving dinners, and double booking Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I spend so much time driving over the holidays I end up upset. Any tips? 
I've tried to limit visits but then someone ends up mad that you didn't show up. I'm a people pleaser so I never feel right saying NO.
Oh and did I mention my birthday is in there too? I can't wait until January already.

  5. Hi! It's taken nine years but we've finally worked it out. We do Thanksgiving with my family then Christmas with my in-laws. I'm a people pleaser too but along the way I realized that I'd rather spend quality time with one group than have perfect party attendance. I wonder if anyone really likes spending time with me when I'm all stressed out and cranky (and SICK from eating too much).

    I'm a new follower from the FMBT blog hop. I hope you can stop by to visit and follow us too.

    Good luck working out your party schedule and have a great week! :)
