    Skip the family holiday dinner. Stop by for dessert or just coffee and then head out quickly.

    I don't mean to be flip but year after year, there's bemoaning about Christian holidays and religion because fundie relatives are so tedious.

    So do what my husband and I do: don't go. Help out at a homeless shelter instead. If you have a job, offer to work so others can have the day off. Walk dogs at your local  shelter Or, ask the people you do like to not invite the miserable people. Spend the day with people who don't celebrate Easter. Or have holidays at YOUR place and control the guest list.

    Everyone has tedious annoying relatives. And for all we know, they complain to their friends about us, which is fine because I don't deal with mine in situations when I'm stuck with them for hours. I simply don't put myself in that position anymore.

    Anyhow, my mini rant is over -- I hope your relatives behave themselves and you have a nice time. We'll be having a wonderful dinner for two with flowers, wine and a decadent dessert.

    Life's what you make of it.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
