I am probably writing this a few weeks ahead of time seeing as my birthday is on December 20th and its not technically even December yet but it’s the same old story every year. With my birthday so close to Christmas it usually means 2 things:
1 – I get a whole whack load of presents in December (thanks Mom! You never let me down)
and 2 – A lot of people won’t be able to make it to my birthday party. Sad Panda.
When I was younger and in school everyone was already on holidays when my birthday rolled around. And now as I get older and make grown up friends, they are usually “gone back home” for Christmas. Or everyone already has plans because December is the busiest month for EVERYONE.
What’s a girl to do?
Have a party anyways when I want and whoever shows up shows up?
Wait until January to have a post birthday celebration? Meh… by then the excitement is already worn off.
Not have a party of any sort?
It’s always a dilemma every year. This year I thought I would think about it early to hopefully have people be able to attend. But now its just stressing me out earlier than normal.
This year will be my 29th. So I will try my best not to fret about it too much. But next year… I’m sending out invitations in July…
