Being honest, would you take time to spend a holiday vacation with just your immediate family? You know, the ones who live under the same roof?
Yeah, I mean not the WHOLE family, just the everyday ones. I know the holidays are family time, but does it have to be all of them, every time?
Let me just take a risk for all of us and say NO! Love ya, mean it, do not want to spend the holidays with “y’all” or better said, “ALL y’all.” I know; I am evil. I just hurt someone’s feelings, and the ones who are most hurt are the people who secretly agree with me the strongest.
They may even be a little jealous that they did not come out with it first.
I am not trying to get out of Family Vacation with the WHOLE family, just saying we should not feel guilty for reserving some time just for us.
Even if just for a few days, away from the normal routine, but with the nut jobs we see everyday.
Yep, they are crazy ,but they are family and we love them. And in the right environment, without the day-to-day grind to weigh us down, they are so Ossum to be with.
