Holidays are exhausting.

I’m a creature of habit and like my normal routine.

Holidays are everything but normal.

Too much food. Too much to drink. Not enough rest. Not enough sleep. A lot of people. A lot of entertaining. Constantly on the go. Exhausting.

After a holiday, I much need alone time. I need peace. I need quiet. I need time to rest, relax, and sleep. I need to cleanse my body and my mind. I need to recharge.

I’m not a fan of the holidays.

Holidays are a time to celebrate and spend time together. We only get together a handful of times a year. I try my best to enjoy them, participate, and contribute.

I try to maintain balance and be selective. But holidays are a lot. We overdo it.

Truth be told, I’m a homebody and enjoy being alone.
