Yep, for some things, I can be a Christmas Grinch. I was thinking about the Christmas Ornament Exchange Party we had last year. It was fun. So then I was thinking about doing it again this year. Then I thought again.
Last year, I only knew a limited amount of people. Now I know a ton of people. Some of those people I know but don't particularly care for. Some of those people I only know at work and I don't care to know them outside of work. Not because they are bad people, but because work is all we have in common. Then there are people who I would like to know better outside of work.
Then I have family, old friends, David friends, and David family. Of course, David's family lives out of state and so do some of my old friends, so that is kind of a bummer.
The real problem now, how do you choose some people and not others? How do you not hurt people's feelings? What if I invite two people who hate each other or something? Forget it.
It seems like a hassle coupled with a burden wrapped in a bother.
