Once again, I have been in a slump the last month-ish. But as I type (Monday night from work) I'm feeling better than I have in awhile.
Now, what on earth has caused the recapturing of my Christmas Joy?
Was it finally getting that picture of our Santa standing next to our jackolanterns?
Was it the phone elimination interview that I finally got scheduled for December THIRTIETH? probably not.
Was it getting a calendar/system in place for next year at last?
I don't think so.
Was it finally finding a use for the TWELVE DOZEN cookies I'll be getting at the church MOMS party I have this Friday? not quite, but I will be glad to take them all to my work party on Tuesday!
Was it deciding that all cards would be sent out after New Year's in an effort to destress my Advent? maybe.
Was it the decision to stay in the job I have and adjust our family schedule by moving bedtime an hour later so I can be with the kids more on my nights off? well, that helped.
But, the biggest reason that I'm happy tonight is that instead of spending the 15 min I have with the kids after their dinner and before I leave for work doing Kinder homework. I decided we'd catch up on all that later so that the kids could watch these......
For Sugars the boys each had their own video too!
Then, right as I was needing to walk out the door Sonshine comes up to me holding this and asking me to read it with him. "Please Momma!! Please! Please! Pleeeeeaaaassseeee!!"
(yup, hardcover with a $.89 price tag. This is a favorite book of MINE!
It was SO worth being late to work!
