Every year, I tend to get the holiday dread.
This is something that is sort of counter to what all the people else is thinking.
While gas oil furnaces are making houses cozy plus people are trimming the tree, I’m wishing I was anywhere else. It’s nothing up-to-date really. Like most children, I loved Christmas plus everything about it. But when our parents divorced, that was sort of the end of our Christmas happy. This was mainly due to the fact that our mom now viewed me as the hired help. Plus, she would have the gas furnace just blasting as I was up in the frigid attic getting down decorations. It was the worst. I would be dripping with sweat while moving furniture, lifting boxes of decorations all because the Heating, Ventilation and A/C heating was on the crazy setting. Since then, I have pretty much dreaded Christmas. You’d think it would be peculiar now that I’m an adult with our own family. But no, every one of us still have to make the trek to our Mom’s plus deal with the Heating, Ventilation and A/C thermostat setting from hell. This still hasn’t changed. It was so bad this past Christmas that I had to keep knocking down the thermostat setting on the gas furnace. But Mom would come right behind me plus pump it back up. It’s her condo so, I just gave up. However, this actually struck a chord with me this year. On the way south to our home, I just told our wifey that if our Mom wants to do Christmas, she’d do it at our house. That was just the last Christmas that I’m not going to enjoy because of too much Heating, Ventilation and A/C heating plus bad memories.
