About 5 years ago we started this new family tradition of going to Las Vegas right before Christmas. My brother and his girlfriend fly from NC and join us there.  This year there are 11 of us going and I am looking forward to it in a way.  I love for my family all to get together like this but this year is particularly stressfull for me.  I have not worked too much this year and that is what I pay for the trip with and pay for Christmas presents with.  Because of the economy and the nature of my job things have slowed to a crawl at work.  Hubby said we couldn't afford to go because we had just come home from a vacation in Florida when everyone started talking about it but I was determined to go so I put it on our credit card.  Now that bill has come in and I am having to put a bunch of christmas presents on the credit card (which we never do) and I'm thinking maybe it wasn't such a good idea to book this trip.  However my parents are getting older and with my dad's health scare this year we all felt it was important to go and I didn't want to be left behind.  So here I sit this morning having an anxiety attack just thinking about all the stuff I still have to do.
