So How Do You All Handle The Holidays??

So How Do You All Handle The Holidays??

Every year i go through depression and pain just trying to get through. My kids help as much as they can, but i have a tendency to not want to give up my ability to prepare holiday dinners, as i have for the last 30+ years.

I finally gave in this year and had all 3 of my kids cooked all the sides,drinks ,app.,desert etc plus clean up. My husband only had to cook turkey, and I have to tell it all worked well. I had a lot of pain so what I thought would bother me didn't, it actually felt good.
