The consensus is that a three day Christmas is too much. We were able to mesh together all the missing pieces--i.e. the people and their various commitments and schedules. But it was exhausting.
It didn't help that Friday's sniffles warped into a full-blown cold yesterday. I still had a family lunch, dinner and brunch to attend. I tried to enjoy myself, but I couldn't wait to get back home. We returned around 3 PM today.
I've parked myself on the couch in sweatpants and a tee shirt with a pillow and blanket, gypsy cold care tea and a new supply of tissues. I hope I feel better tomorrow.
