As another holiday approaches, I confess to feeling a bit overwhelmed. Getting the house ready, cleaning the house for company, etc. just seems to be a bit much this year. Don't know if it's the menopause dragging me down a bit or I just set expectations too high for myself.
I know I don't need a huge menu. I know my friends and family don't care if the house is spotless. So why do I and millions of other women put the pressure on ourselves that everything has to be perfect? Is it societal? Is it the way we were raised?
It's rare lately that I have both my sons in the house at the same time. I want to savor this moment not be stuck in the kitchen all day. Maybe I can find a happy medium.
What are your solutions to holiday stress?
