Stark Raving Mad for the Holiday Season


So for the past two years I have not really celebrated the holidays, too much family illness and death.  Oh boy, am I suddenly making up for lost time.  I have already decorated my house, my office, have my tree up and working on the outside decorations for X-mas!  I can't stop myself and it feels good.  I am so happy to be happy about something.  Life has been quiet, my son is staying with friends and things have been quiet on that front. I even went to the gym last night and plan to go tonight (haven't been in over a year). I am excited to cook and make a beautiful table for Thanksgiving and I feel I have much to be thankful for.  But seriously, the Christmas Tree is up!!!!!   Just wanted to share something light-hearted for a change.

Good for you for finding something you enjoy! I'm happy that you're happy! It's all about taking care of ourselves and staying sane. Hugs.

My alanon group uses that month's step as the topic (step 1 jan, step 4 april) in the first meeting of that month - it seems to work out well. We'll be using step 12 on Dec 1st as our topic.

That sounds good. I need to get through Thanksgiving first.
