It's Thursday and we're approaching another weekend.
We will not have snow but rain and more rain in the forecast for Friday through Sunday. With the snow melting and being mixed with the rain, flooding is predicted for a lot of places. To be on the safe side, it would be a nice weekend to stay at home.
This time of the year makes a lot of people anxious about everything...getting the house organized and decorated for the holidays...shopping for gifts for family, friends and coworkers and being overwhelmed with what to get and what will make them happy... cooking or ordering the meal and making sure everyone will be able to eat what has been fixed...preparing for a trip either home or abroad and making sure your luggage is not over the weight limit at the airport...THESE ARE MOMENTS and some of them are not enjoyable. Anxiety seeps in maybe over these things and some others...not enough time ...not enough money...not enough etc.
STOP and put the brakes on. Hold them down for as long as you can. The holiday should not be about any of those things. You should not go into debt trying to please people and to make them happy for one day out of the year. If you don't have time to do major cleaning, do what you can and if the guest make negative comments about a "dust bunny", show or tell them where the cleaning supplies are. Let them know that you would be very happy if they offer to help wherever they see a need (ha ha ha). If people are coming over for dinner, announce in advance what will be served. Let them know that they can bring their own covered dish or something to please their taste.
Each MOMENT should be enjoyed and I've created a card for your enjoyment. Take a look:

Take a little time for yourself and enjoy each moment. Life shouldn't be about being overwhelmed and anxious.
Thank you so much for your continued support and beautiful comments.
