Planning for a Holiday Plan

The holidays are becoming more and more real now that Thanksgiving is just a couple days away. I'm so excited - just love the holidays!

This year the holidays are going to be more of a challenge than usual because now we live so close to family. Since the onset of my chronic migraines and Fibromyalgia my husband and I have been living on the East Coast too far away from family to be expected to travel. Now there will be all kinds of invitations to go and do...

I've made a vow to myself and now to all of you in blog land that I'm absolutely not going to overextend myself this holiday season. There will be no staying up and out until all hours. There will be no crazy foods, or crazy schedules. There will be no drinking. There will be no pressuring myself to buy tons of gifts and spend money we don't have. There will be no guilt. There will be no spending all our holiday time with family and friends.

I'm going to make a plan with my husband while we're driving up to Minnesota for Thanksgiving to ensure that we have time for just us this holiday season in addition to the down time I'll need.

This will certainly be a challenge but I am very committed to doing this right so that I can actually enjoy the holiday season that I love so much. Any advice?

  1. Make sure you follow your plan, stick to it, and get some rest! I always say I'm not going to over do it, and I always over do it, and it takes days to recuperate! This year I am actually ahead of the game plan, and just may have it under control. I sure hope so.
