The fun of Halloween is over and now the dread is setting in. The dread of the upcoming holiday season. I used to love the holidays but over the last five years that love has turned into a serious case of dread. All the planning and coordinating of schedules, followed by dealing with "family" that I would rather avoid can be taxing. This year I can add to the mix the death of my sister and the dread is compounded. I wish I had a skip button that would allow me to bypass the holidays altogether. Simply writing this paragraph has me in tears. So, here is my second warning that this year the holidays may be too much for me to handle.
