I think the excitement and joy of the season has about worn me out…but it’s a good worn out! I’m sleepily contented, albeit a bit bleary eyed. Yesterday morning I was cleaning up after making Jack a pb&j. I grabbed the jelly and put it in the cabinet-fortunately remembering that it went in the fridge instead. So what did I do? I put the jelly down, picked the peanut butter up, and proceeded to stick it in the freezer.
So I need a nap.
But I’m just not good at napping! I wake up terribly disoriented and have a hard time falling asleep at night if I nap. But lately I’ve been having a hard time falling asleep at night anyway…Oh darned if I do, darned if I don’t.
Did everyone have a good Christmas day? I’m loving that we are still in the midst of Christmas…day 4 in fact. 8 to go. Right now I’m debating the whole taking-down-of-the-decorations. I love them, and at the same time I’m ready for a fresh start. Clean slate. But I’ll miss the lights on the tree in a terrible way. So I’m just not sure! Might give it another day or two. Or 8.
Santa bought our family a totally unexpected gift this year in the way of a Wii. I’ve always been anti-video game, but I have to tell you that I’ve had a change of heart with this doo-dad. Cold Maine Winters equal stir-crazy children, and this particular system is going to go a LONG way in getting that pent up energy out of the way! And we’ve already had some terrific family tournaments-it’s actually bought us all together in a really enjoyable way. And it is excersize…let me tell you!
I’ve worked up quite a sweat myself…between the Wii and the hula hoop that I received (totally requested, mind you, and terribly fun) this momma is going to get into a shape of some sort!
One gift that I would like to share is a picture of my grandfather that my dad made a frame for, so I can proudly display it on my eventual “gallery” wall. (And Grandma…that’s a reminder to you to send those pictures mom mentioned to you!) 🙂
Grandpa was at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1933; he played trombone in the Texas Tech band. I love so many details about this picture! I couldn’t get a decent “full on” shot, but here are some snippets.
Anyway, my current plan is to gather family black and whites, and maybe a few pieces of colorful art, and fill up a wall in my dining room. I’m quickly realizing that I need more wall space in this house-there are too many good things to adorn my house with! It’s hard to pick and choose!
Well, time to wrap this up and tackle a bit more of the Christmas aftermath. And debate a little more on those decorations. We’ll see what happens. 🙂
