Here’s the thing… I am crazy.
I like to think I’m pretty laid back and easygoing but really I am type A to a fault and maybe a little bit OCD. I need everything in my life in order and on a schedule or I go completely batshit crazy. If I make a plan (and I always make a plan) for things to go one way and they go another, I shut down. This is perhaps how I end up losing it so frequently. My brother says I manufacture stress, just pull it out of thin air. This is true. My sister says I’m dramatic like Kim Kardashian. (My ass is too small for this to be true.) I think I just like to know what’s going on and when. Also I am controlling.
Can you tell the holidays are going well?
The thing about my family is that they refuse to tell me what’s going on when. When I asked my dad for a holiday itinerary he said, “You know me better than that.”
So here I am buzzing around like a lunatic trying to figure out how to spend time with my family but still (selfishly) do everything I want to do on a normal day off. These two plans are not meshing well.
Anyway, I had decided before this holiday season got under way that I would be the calm one, the positive one, the happy one. Instead I’ve been the craaaaaazy one.
So. Here we go. I will calm my ass down and just go with the flow like I set out to do from the beginning so my family doesn’t try to have me committed.
Mitch said she’d get me a hot pink straight jacket.
