What doesn't kill you makes you stranger...

Holidays are the perfect time to dust off the family dysfunctions, rehash childhood traumas, and revisit old insecurities. Isn't it odd that you are obligated to spend these days off with individuals who just so happened to crawl out of the same gene pool?

Sorry for the cynicism. It's not that bad, really, and has more to do me than them. There's so much to be thankful for - including the fact that the holidays only come once a year. ;-)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Cynical or not, I have to agree with your take on it.

Solidarity in cynicism! Take care, dear!

Thanks, dear. Now I need a holiday to recuperate from the holiday!

Ah-ah! But it serves as a timely reminder of just how lucky you are to be able to have 364 days free of them!

Too true. There's no drama like family drama! :-P

Oh, dear. In Merrie England, there's another month to go before our one big family-obligatory holiday. I do hope my two boys don't feel like this about it :-( Though I have had to extract a promise to be civil to each other for the *whole* day.

Here Thanksgiving ushers in the holiday season, rife with obligatory get-togethers of all varieties - friends, family, coworkers, etcetera, etcetera, ad nauseum - that lasts until New Years.

It's not that bad, really. I'm just tired. :-P For me, it's the extended family and all the associated baggage that's such a drag. My immediate family is a different story.

I hope y'all have a good holiday, and your boys get along all day! ;-)

Is 'traumatized' in some way a form of 'stronger'?
Oh, right, you said 'stranger'. I'd agree with that.

It's so true. I'm getting stranger all the time... :-)
