Post Christmas, Pre New Year

Oh, hello! I am here, having made it through Christmas, Boxing Day, and the assorted cat sitting duties that came before and after. Christmas is a lot of work, isn't it? Even with ours being fairly low key, there are still presents to wrap, food to make, etc., etc., etc. And somehow our house is a disaster throughout the Christmas season. I see photos of other people's supposed Christmas disasters, with a bit of wrapping paper strewn throughout an otherwise clean room, and I think, "Really? That's as bad as it got?" In our house, there's recycling piled up, laundry piled up, dishes piled up. And sprinkles pretty much everywhere. How do they end up everywhere? I swear they can walk, or maybe fly.

But it was a good Christmas, mess included. We got a lot of things cleared up on Boxing Day, and that felt good. I still have a list of things which need to be attended to, but that's just the general state of my life. Now we are taking advantage of J being off work until the new year and are spending some time doing family fun type things together. Today we went to the cinema, and tomorrow we'll head for one of favorite palaces, where there are always special Christmas things going on. Our weekend looks pretty typical, but then we've got New Year's Eve and New Year's Day fun planned. I hope to have a little more time to take it slow before Genna, and then we are back to normal life. Time is flying.
