Socks, the orange and white domestic short haired kitty.
A guenia pig that has yet to be named.

Good outlook QTOFFER, I'm with you. The winter months are always more stressful...its a fact that people suffer depression and stress more-so during the winter months. Part of that just has to do with the lack of sunlight, or exposure to it. Go to a tanning booth once in a while during the winter months. The goal here isnt to cook yourself and get a tan, but a tanning booth can offer the same benefits as being in the sun...it aids in the bodies production of Vitamin D which, a lack of, has been linked to depression and stress. Its a great boost and you can feel the difference. Try it!

I almost dated a psychic.....

She left me before we met.

Don't let the masses control how you celebrate Christmas. Only do the parts that have meaning to you. If your friends are so stuck up that they need presents to stay your friends, maybe you need new friends. Within your family, you have the ability to influence attitudes, by displaying them yourself and proposing alternate activities that have more meaning.

Well, I have decided to cut one thing from the baskets I am making (0ne less thing to bake) And I am going to use the krustyz pie crust mix instead of making it from scratch. That will ease the burden a bit. My daughter has been such a sweet little helper with the cleaning, a 5 yr olds help is better than none I will try to keep myself from going crazy, but there is still that underlying hum of holiday stress. Just 4 more days...

Reading these posts has helped me realize that I'm not as stressed/bad off as I thought I was!

Hang in there everybody, and remember to enjoy this time for what it is - try not to let it drive you crazy.

I had enough leftovers to last for days, then an idle conversation turned into a Dim Sum cooking demonstration for my mother in law. I'll be in leftovers for more than a week!
