Week of Thanksgiving and the Near Future

Happy Monday y'all!

Man this week is the launch of the annual holiday crazy schedule.
The kids are out of school for the week.
Family has flown in for Thanksgiving, more coming for Christmas.
The struggle of juggling both my family and my husband's begins.
Two words Christmas shopping. Have I even started?
Now I'm just waiting for the first family feud to happen as it tends to happen every holiday. I'm betting that there will be at least one loud mouthed fool, that NO ONE can handle.

This is the first Thanksgiving that we've been home for in 5 years as usually the holiday comes and goes too quickly to travel. Since we moved back home this summer, I feel like the stress is loading on thick and the longevity will be greater than what we've "dealt" with for years.  Needless to say....I will be sure to keep the comfort foods FAR from me as I probably could sit down and eat an entire pan of brownies. Don't laugh, I've done it before.

This year, as an older and mature 27 year old, I am putting my little family first.  I will of course try to work through everyone's schedules, but ULTIMATELY it's about my kids. If things get hairy, we can go home and just do our own thing.
I refuse to get tangled in the drama, stress and will remain in control.

I will also be making sure that I am pushing play each morning on my workouts so that I can keep my stress levels down to controllable. When did I become so uptight and controlling?
