I hadn't heard that one for a long time Austen, love it.
I finally realized this year that there is something very wrong with this whole holiday thing in my family and it is going to change. I have the least energy of anyone in the family but I do all the work for Thanksgiving and our Christmas with the kids and grandkids. My DILs do not lift a finger to help with anything when they are here and I'm tired of it. They pick up the loot when they get ready to go home and leave the rest of the mess for me to clean up.
Next year I'm going to suggest we all meet at a motel and reserve a room to have Christmas in and I won't have to clean for weeks before and after. If they don't like the idea Dad and I will take a vacation during Christmas. The free ride is over.
luv and hugs
