I'm not a mathematician but I am pretty sure (and my nerves will attest) that we just spent 15 hours in the car together. Wow. That's a lot when you have two children who are potty-training, two extroverts, two introverts, a compact car, and too much stuff.
I love my family and it was wonderful to get to see everyone. At the end of the holidays, I can say if I had to do it all over again for and with the same people I wouldn't hesitate.
Let me add one closing thought, though. This year, as I did last year, I resolve to continue to pray about a way to make it more about JESUS and less about eating, shopping, gifting, etc!
