And so we begin again

December was pretty much a blur. Gifts were bought, sorted and wrapped. Trips were made to WI. We had all of F’s children for Christmas. It wasn’t perfect, but we all survived. We’ve watched lots of movies and new DVDs. We’ve been fighting colds. The drier broke and has since been fixed. A mountain of laundry was done. We had an amazing dinner for New Year’s Eve. We did not stay up to ring in the New Year, but did put on funny hats, blow horns and attempt to use indoor firecrackers (total let down). We’ve taken down the lights, and packed away all of the Christmas décor.

I could really use a nap right now.

I still have a few items to get for Christmas – a DVD for F that doesn’t come out until later this month, a scarf to match his pea coat, and table linens for my college roommate, K. We need to do a massive house cleaning – even I agree that things are getting pretty gross. I need to catch up with some friends that kind of fell to the wayside during all of this holiday hub-bub.

All in all I’m looking forward to getting back into our routine and getting over this cold.

Here’s hoping all of you had a great Christmas and are looking forward to a wonderful new year!
