Great new word

Abulia- Loss or impairment of the ability to act or to make decisions.

You guessed it. My whole family, mostly my mom's side, can not make a decision to save their lives. Where's Easter? That's usually a no brainer. But when are we all going to get together?Who should bring what? What time? We've exchanged emails for days trying to iron out details.

However, with abulia comes great freedom. If no one makes a plan or decision ahead of time, we're all allowed to fly by the seat of our pants. When the hubby and I decide, at the last moment, to go out to eat, we can almost always count on mom and dad to be able to join us because they haven't made dinner plans yet either. And there's nothing like those spur of the moment get togethers. If there's anything my family knows how to do, it's party!
