Everyone needs some alone time. It may be hard to carve that time out but it will be a blessing to you and others.
I don't know about you, but I feel like I lost this past Christmas season. There were so many things to do. There were cards to fill out and send. Phone calls needed to be made. Presents needed to be bought and so on. All these things were good things that I wanted to do so others would know I cared. They were good things. I think next year I will start a little early. That way I can carve out some solitutde for myself. (I should have planned that for this year!)
You and your family all need some time to slow down.
