Holiday Party - Relax

So, I was wondering what I was going to do today. Originally, I was going to post some more of my Christmas reviews, but I forgot that this was the week my parents were moving. So, instead of writing my reviews, I’ve been packing up my parents and helping with the move. But then, I decided to just have a resting day. This time of year is insanely hectic, and sometimes, we forget to just stop and smell the roses.

So, I decided that I wanted to leave today as a day to just relax, take a deep breath, and refresh. This time of year is stressful enough that I think we can all use some relax time. So, take a break. Watch a movie, grab a coffee with friends, or read a good book. Don’t let the hustle and bustle of the holiday season stress you out. Remember, we wish each other happy holidays. Not stressful beyond all compare, or panic mode holidays, or “do I need to buy any more gifts?!” holidays. So don’t forget to actually enjoy this time of year.

On a side note, I just found out that Google Play is offering a free download of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring for a limited time. I already got mine, and I plan on re-watching it today while taking some time to just “be”. So pick up a copy if you’d like, and enjoy some holiday cheer watching elves, hobbits, wizards, and humans battle it out to save Middle-Earth. J


  1. I agree that everyone if possible should have some downtime to enjoy some quiet or relaxing time. Enjoy!

  2. I hope you enjoyed your relaxation day. :)

  3. I've been doing a favor for a very good friend of the family. I have been watching her 11 month old. 10 hour days. I am so not used to having a baby around. Been exhaused at the end of the day

    1. Reading is my downtime. It takes me away to places and I can tune out the crap around me for a while

  4. Yes, everyone need time to themselves and to just let their bodies recoup.

  5. Oooh! A Lord of the Rings marathon sounds good! Thanks for the link. And the reminder to relax! We have been going non-stop all week long and it gets stressful. Sometimes it is hard to remember to take a breath! So, I am going to sit here for the rest of the evening and RELAX!

  6. Everyone needs to take some time to relax during the holidays. It is a very stressful time of the year.
