Day 3- Christmas is over

The day after Christmas. It always seems like a downer of a day. For at least the last two months, we have all been planning for and buying for and talking about it and then what seems like the blink of an eye, it is over. The surprises have been broken, the presents have been opened, the food has been eaten, the family has been seen. Now, especially when Christmas is in the middle of the week, life goes back to normal, we go back to getting up early and going back to work. Well, for us, tomorrow is when that starts because today we are driving back home after visiting said family. What will we do now with what we got? Will we try to lessen the clutter from before Christmas so we can find a spot for the new items we got for Christmas? Will we work on cultivating friendships that we caught up with during this season or will it go back to the status quo?
What about 2013? Will we make resolutions for the new year that we are sure to not keep? We made it through the end of the mayan calendar so we should make a change… What should change in my life? How do I make that change into a habit? Something to think about.

Day 2- Merry Christmas

I really would rather give than receive. I got a really nice gift that is way too much money. I feel like I should bring it back but then that would make D feel bad. I love it, don’t get me wrong but I don’t need it. I have enough, I am blessed with my family and house and all that we have.
Merry Christmas and let’s try to remember the real reason for the season – Jesus’ birth!

Christmas Eve 2012

This is my first post of the week in my challenge to post once a day for a week. Let’s see how that goes.

Christmas Eve and Christmas in general, you think of happy times and happy kids and presents and happiness… ok, happiness in general, or at least it should be. Today we have spent the day arguing with our 6 yr old

and threatening more than once if not 3 times that we will call Santa and tell him not to come out our house this year.

We have gone visiting to our friends and her friends homes bringing chocolates and gifts and we just get attitude no matter what we do. We bought her a new dress and we get attitude as we leave the store, and when she tries it on, she insists on wearing her leggings that have a stain on them, which is why we buy her new tights.

We go to her friend’s house so she can exchange gifts with her friend and we get attitude when she has to clean up to leave.

We came home and got a snack and we get more attitude when we want to do Christmas crafts but they are not “her way”.

Well, Christmas eve will come and go and I suppose Santa will come anyway, even with all the attitude. We should teach her a lesson and leave all the presents downstairs until she freaks out in the morning. Well, I can’t do that.  I’m sure it will be a smashing success even though, it has not started out that way…

Merry christmas to all and to all a good night.
