Okay, I just typed and then deleted a terribly lengthy vent about Christmas and my family. It was therapeutic, but I determined that not everyone would understand my frustration and might mistakenly believe that I was the crazy one, when if fact it is another. I just had a ridiculous conversation with a family member regarding the sending and receiving of Christmas cards...and the person on the line ended the call after effectively making something out of nothing...and that's all I'll say about that. So, there. That's my condensed, watered-down vent.
