December 26, 2017
We don’t traditionally celebrate Christmas but that doesn’t stop me from being obsessed with the idea of it. It was with a lot of snow that we welcomed Christmas 2017 and it was a really good holiday.
1. No one was sick which was a fucking miracle for this family and has since gone back to our usual everyone is sick (or injured) norm as of this morning.
2. Everyone slept. Poo. Poo. Poo.
3. We spent a lot of time together as a family, we spent a lot of time with our extended family and a lot of time with friends.
4. Your dad and I, although holed up at home with no babysitting services in sight, had some nice evenings together.
It was relaxing and quiet and snowy and fun. It felt like a true break and your dad and I felt grateful to be able to enjoy the time.
Because, (and here is the lesson I have for you today) sometimes you don’t need a whole heap of activities or plans or really anything at all to have a really good time. Sometimes it’s nice to slow down the pace, drink that second cup of coffee (just kidding, you guys obviously don’t drink coffee) and hang out.
There is something really special about taking pleasure in the little things and going at your own pace. Try and remember that next time you feel busy and overwhelmed. A Saturday at home can be as rejuvenating as a day at the spa. Almost.
In the meantime, back to our regularly scheduled shit show over here.
