It’s a crazy time of year for everyone.
As you can probably guess, since I haven’t posted for several days, our family is no exception.
A couple days with the grandparents, activities to fill a week off from school before the holidays.
Forget about the writing deadlines I have. I just pray I will find a way to make the assignments happen. I usually do, but this month there’s so little time left. I keep telling myself 1,500 words is “do-able.”
Even though I committed to trying to keep things manageable, it’s almost impossible when you have two religious holidays AND a child’s birthday to celebrate in one week’s time, this time of year.
So I find myself here at the computer before bedtime, trying to figure out how I’m going to make the birthday and the cake and the gift-wrapping and the writing happen without my head exploding. (Not to mention the all-important anniversary of my first date with D., which happens to be tomorrow night).
So how will I manage to calm my brain and turn it off until tomorrow?
With this –
“Mommy, you’re better than peanut butter and jelly sandwiches AND you’re better than Barbie and the Twelve Dancing Princesses!”
No need to worry about my holiday gift — it came today when I wasn’t expecting it, and that will help me with the perspective on the rest of the madness that is to come in the next few days.
