Just for today

Well here it is the first day of the last month of the year.  Did you survive Thanksgiving?  Did you get any great deals at Black Friday?  How about today with Cyber Monday?  Me, I haven’t bought a single Christmas present yet.  This is how I am every year and I don’t see it ever changing.

The chaos of the Thanksgiving Day weekend had me in a complete and utter fog yesterday.  I actually napped which is something I never do.  And even with a nap I was unable to keep my eyes open past midnight last night.  And I am usually up until at least midnight regularly.

Before my family got here I cleaned my house from top to bottom. ((looks around)) Although you couldn’t tell by looking at it now.  Toys laid out across the sofa, breakfast and lunch dishes still left on the table, several pairs of shoes and socks laying around, and what looks like dried apples from a package of them my son opened this morning strewn across the floor.  The leftovers are taking up too much space in the fridge and I don’t think I could bring myself to eat another piece of turkey.  Think I will just throw everything left in a baggie and freeze it for a dinner plan at a MUCH later date.

The kids are semi back to normal today after staying up late and eating foods that I would usually never even buy.  So now it’s time to get ready for Christmas.  I have been out to the garage and contemplated getting out the decorations but decided it can wait just one more day.  Today I just want a plain day with no planning, no decisions, and NO CHORES.  The snow that was so beautiful on the ground yesterday is now almost melted and gone and this mommy is feeling bad because I had forgotten to get the kids some snow boots therefore they didn’t even have a chance to play in it.  I know there will be more but still feeling guilty just the same.  So instead we turned on “Frozen”, made a huge fort with every pillow and blanket in the house, and enjoyed the warmth of the fireplace.  Just for today…
