I have decided that I am against Holidays. And this is why:
Husbands get a day off from work. Kids get a day off from school. And I get a day off from, what exactly? Solitude? A quiet house that stays clean? Getting to do what I want instead of being on call to five people?
To me, a holiday means there are more people in the house eating, making noise, quarreling, and otherwise making work for me than there would otherwise be. Now that all my kids are in school full time, Holidays are a pain in the rear end.
But I'm not bitter about it, or anything.
And please don't try to make me feel better or solve it or try to talk me out of it. I'm just sayin'.
That is all.
