There is something about Christmas and holiday time spent with your family that really tugs at your heart strings. Add in 3 (yes 3) engagement announcements to that potent mix and you can get yourself a wee bit worked up. This is precisely what happened to me. I was thinking about the big 3: engagement, marriage, and children. You could say my biological clock went into overdrive.
When in fact just a mere few weeks prior to this vacation, I had been thinking about how cute puppies are and how even though I’d really like to have one, my lifestyle is just not stable enough to be able to take care of said puppy (I travel too much). Then I start thinking about children? I’ll call it a moment of brief holiday insanity as clearly if I can’t even handle an adorable puppy, I probably should chill out on even thinking of the big 3. Perhaps I should start with a plant.
