I am exhausted

I love Christmas time and everything that comes with it. But I must admit, I am tired. I know I am not the only one that feels that way...I hope...


  • Cramming all the wrapping paper and boxes into a garbage can way too small.
  • Finishing off all the goodies so they won't be able to tempt me on January 1st...ya know..."I am going to be skinnier day!"
  • Endless amount of pine needles to vacuum from my now dead Christmas tree.
  • Finding places for all the new toys to hide...
  • and parting with old toys to make room for the new ones (my kids really hate the DI because it takes all their toys away...really, I am just addicted to getting rid of unneeded things ;)
  • Coming down from sugar highs.
  • Affording enough batteries to power all the toys.
  • Catching up on laundry that has stacked up.
  • Figuring out things for the kids to do while they are home.
I am sure there are a lot more, that is all I could think of for now.

**Without sounding like too much of a downer...I am so grateful for these things because it means I have people to take care of...

Enjoy your New Year and put down that cookie! Or mail it to me!

that does sound exhausting... doesn't sound like there is much at all to be happy about... how do people go about with such smiles on their faces during this time of year when everything produces just about as many problems as joys...
or maybe it feels worse because we expect to be happier.

LOVE the update. :)
There always does seem to be two ways to look at things... And I don't think it's possible to always have the bright outlook.

Have you been spying on me??? You took words right outta my mouth! I'm so glad I have someone to commiserate with :) Oh, and good luck trying to take a cookie away from me!

So, so true!! We have yet to do the DI sorting gig. Maybe tomorrow (I have been saying that for days)... I have a feeling Brecken isn't going to like it either. I love all the Christmas pictures below. Your kids are just the cutest!!!!
