Well just over a week into my ‘vacation’ and I’m about ready to go back to Van. Or at least for the holiday part of the vacation to start. More couch lounging would be nice.
It’s typically on day fourth of the parental visit that I start to get the eye twitch. Coupled with holiday madness, it’s just not good for business.
I feel as though I have not seen the Boy at all, which is kind of true. He’s back in Toronto working, went back yesterday after what seemed like a very stressful holiday lunch at his parents house. In less than three hours we opened presents, and had lunch/dinner for 20 people. He’s coming back tomorrow, and then we’re going over the river for a day and a half, back for a night, then leaving Sarnia and up to Niagara on Tuesday to drop siblings off at school and squeeze in more family visiting. Then that eve we’re back in Toronto and have plans with my friends…and then New Years…it’s never ending.
We have one day – New Years Day – where nothing is going on and then I leave the next day. Oi and vey.
I think I’m grumpy today because I hate the consumerism of Boxing Day and I was forced to go out this morning in what was described as a “tea date” and then turned into a little mall madness. One needs to be prepared for that shit. Plus, my sweet n’ low stash was out and to brave that type of crowd without my morning cuppa Earl Grey did not make me a happy camper.
Well, at least there is some good music floating about, and tomorrow is a new day with more leftovers.
