The holidays are great, don’t get us wrong! Two months dedicated to spending time with loved ones, overeating, and gift giving? Yes, please! But the holidays also mean crazy travel schedules, people fist fighting in malls for $10 off the latest doll, and long, boring conversations with certain family members. You know the ones…conversations on mutual funds with your Uncle Joe, little Todd’s soccer schedule with your cousin Trish, and how things just aren’t like they used to be with your great aunt Marge. And heaven forbid you’re just out of college, in a new relationship, or don’t have kids yet because here come the questions….what are you going to do with your life? When are you getting married? When are you going to have kids?
