*whew* Thank goodness that’s over!
Christmas IS my favorite time of year. It is an amazing opportunity to rest, recharge and reconnect with family and friends. It is a time to celebrate the birth of our Savior. It is a time to enjoy good food, the cutest decorations of the year and PRESENTS! *giggle* (sorry, channeling my inner 9-year old)
Monday we go back to work; the kids are back Wednesday. On one hand, I’m ready to go back. The kids are getting stir crazy with only boring mommy & daddy for entertainment. And mommy needs something to do all day but pick up KIX cereal and bananas off the floor.
On the other hand, I love being home. This is the only time of year I see so much of everybody. During our regularly scheduled craziness, there just isn’t time to sit on the couch and watch a movie together, or play a playstation game together unless we schedule it.
Munchkin is sitting on the couch, practicing her cursive in a notebook. She’s ready to go back too. She’s excited and curious to meet her new math/homeroom teacher. She’s been reading like a true crazy-viller.
Princess Crybaby is currently wearing her coat. Not that we’re leaving; she just wants to wear it. She’s got her cup in her hand and she’s dragging her ride-on whateveritscalled around. We should have gotten her a wagon.
Coach is playing his online game. He’s like a level 75 super-hunter. I am a wimpy little level 22 (almost 23).
And yours truly is sitting on the couch, touching her blog for the first time since…well, before Christmas.
So, while I’m glad the cooking, endless cleaning (because you never know who’s coming over) and wrapping and cleaning up presents is over, it’s been simply heavenly to rest and recharge.
Tonight is New Year’s Eve. As a family, we are setting goals tonight. Wellness, family time, and whatever else we think of. More on that later.
For now, toodles!
