Maybe it’s me.
Maybe it’s sunspots.
Maybe it actually happens, same time, every year.
It seems that things, by things I mean life, should become calmer this time of year. The kids are back in school. Everyone is on a schedule. Vacations and yard work are over. The only anxiety-producing dilemma is whether or not to put Prozac in the Thanksgiving turkey, and deciding when and if we should start our holiday shopping. No big deal, right?
Then why is it that everything from family to finances to work to major life decisions seem to come rumbling in with the force of Hurricane Katrina between now and Dec 31st? Is it just me or does everything/everyone get really bat-shit-crazy this time of year?
I’m just not up for it this year… just sayin’.
Fall is deceptively crazy. It sneaks up on us, and BOOM! I hear you. Great post!
