Hi all! I am in US and live with my in-laws, spouse and 1 kid (pre-schooler). I get so stressed everytime a festival comes, because it seems to me to involve a disproportionate amount of work for me. There's a lot of cleaning, and cooking and preparing sweets/prasad, and cleaning the pooja room and setting things for pooja... I've lost the celebratory spirit, and it all just feels like a task. Rest of the family just chill out, eat, enjoy... while I still have the cleanup to handle. So much so, I have started abhorring festivals And I've completely lost the meaning of the festival in the mundane tasks (even if I try to sing bhajans I like or something like that during the preparation) I admit that I am not a superwoman like many people. I don't really do elaborate stuff - but even the basics are stressing me out From the other not-superwoman-s out there, how do y'all deal with this (besides getting rest of the family to pitch in - which is just not going to happen in my case)? How can I get to enjoy all this at least a little bit, again?
