Today was the first day of Christmas vacation. I’ve been looking forward to this day for a few weeks now, but I spent it moving furniture and shampooing carpets. We had some new furniture delivered, and I’m sitting in the most comfortable chair right now, I could almost go to sleep. My house is still in disarray, but this room is peaceful. I don’t want to leave it.
I can’t believe Christmas is in 4 days. I haven’t wrapped any presents yet, so I feel an all nighter on Christmas Eve coming on. I hate to wrap presents because it seems like such a waste! Matthew is really excited this year about Santa, and we’ve been reading about the manger in several stories at bedtime. He has his own nativity set to play with, and I think he is understanding even more. We’ve been trying to do the Advent readings, but with all of us not home at the same time, it’s been more of a challenge than I’d like.
I’m tired so signing off for now.
