This is the time of year when my head feels like it might explode.
And I start to stress out over how we are going to move, celebrate Summer’s birthday, send out holiday cards, buy gifts, celebrate Hanukkah, buy and decorate a tree, celebrate Christmas, and on and on.
Now, of course, these are all very very good things. But they must be crushed into the next 2 1/2 weeks. (This is apparently very important in our culture so we can spend the epic long dreary cold months of January and February completely bored with no plans whatsoever.)
To alleviate my stress, I immediately take action and start checking things off my to do list.
Oh wait, that’s not right.
I mean, I immediately go on Facebook.
And that’s where I read the following status update of one of my Facebook friends.
“Bought and wrapped all gifts. Cards sent out. Tree decorated. Off to make cookies with the kids!”
Okay, that’s just not necessary.
Seriously not necessary.
You’re making the rest of us feel like lazy bastards.
