Holiday Relaxation, Single Style
I had three holiday events to go to last night. I made it to two. Today I had another holiday party to go to and I just decided enough was enough. I stayed home, didn't shower all day, got through a lot of clutter-clearing I've been meaning to do for a while, and watched really bad movies the entire time.
I think I had bad movies on my television non-stop from about noon to 10 pm. I did not answer phone calls, only dealt with a few emails, and otherwise I am just now writing my blog but not doing anything else strenuous. Lovely!
Being single can be fantastic sometimes. You get to do what you want to do when you want to do it. Don't get me wrong - families are great, I'd love my own. But I'm really trying to savor my single time now, because one of these days things will change (as they always do) and I'll be looking back and wondering I didn't appreciate being single more when I had the time to myself.
Consider ways you can cut out extraneous socializing and just enjoy being with yourself this holiday season.
Side note: Why on earth do so many people schedule parties during the holidays? Don't we have enough going on between Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Year's? Maybe people could shift their scheduling and have more parties in February, which is one of the most gosh darn depressing months of the year what with the cold and Valentine's Day. I like that. February parties...as long as the parties had nothing to do with that horrible Hallmark holiday, of course. Just a thought.
