Moderately Confused (12/28/09)

Christmas 2009 was exhausting for me, with four straight days of merriment spread across the greater Chicagoland area. On the 23rd, my fiance and I braved rush hour traffic as we drove to her mom’s house. The next day, we visited her grandparents and her father back to back. Christmas Day was spent eating brunch and opening presents with my parents. Finally, on the 26th, we attended a funeral service for my great-uncle. The whole experience was dizzying, but also satisfying in that I got to spend time with family. Unfortunately, some people have to work over the holidays. With that in mind, I’ll temper my complaints and instead raise a glass to the baristas, clerks, cops, nurses, and other brave souls (Santas included) whose days are spent serving others. Merry Belated Christmas; you’ve earned it.
