A couple of school concerts
FINALLY getting the kids passport applications done and mailed
Mailing off the only Christmas gift I had that needed mailing
Receiving our annual Christmas cake from my Aunt in Jamaica
Already eating ALL of the annual Christmas cake we got in the mail from my Aunt in Jamaica
Making an ugly Christmas sweater
Indulging in Spirit Week at each kids school – (Every day there’s a theme they have to dress like)
Finding (too large to match the rest of the display) plastic toy animals mixed in with my African wicker nativity scene
Watching a 1970’s Christmas movie
Getting to the end of a really good book – And then starting another
Deciding to stay home and be lazy all weekend
But then …
Going to Church and really appreciating the spirit/vibe/nature of the Church we attend
Eating out (aka not cooking) both on Saturday and Sunday
Finishing a knitting project that’s been languishing
Getting new (bigger for a bigger project) knitting needles and new yarn
Going to the mall to do some shopping for an older family friend
Falling in love with a new Bath and Body Works scent
Getting a quick 20 minute massage
Wondering if I should go back and get more of that same scent so I have extra in case they discontinue it
Getting roped into a work holiday pot luck lunch; complete with ugly Christmas sweater and gift exchange
Finalizing some plans for trips we’re taking early next year
Just some of the things that’s been happening since my last post on Dec 11th.
This was a no frills post because I’m in a take it easy mood at this point.
Really hope you guys are not all stressed out.
