Is it just me, or is this one of the hardest weeks of the year? My brain is fried! I can't think straight. I was good this year and have my cards out, packages mailed, and nearly all my shopping done so the preparation stress is gone. All the parties and activities are over but now it is the waiting. The waiting for Christmas day and all of its fun. The waiting for normal life to begin again and all the thinking of all the things you want and need to do in the new year and you can't do it yet or even clarify it in your head. And so I wander around the house attempting to clean it and do laundry but my kids are beyond helping because they are in a stupor as well so it is pointless. And school work, well that is a joke right now, I'm lucky to get 1 hour out of them. So today for example has been filled up with Sudoku, coloring My Little Ponies, and an attempt to clean my living room downstairs that has ended up with me, here at the computer typing instead of cleaning the desk off (forget the 4 loads of laundry waiting to be folded). I know that I am sounding really whiny for no reason but really I wish Christmas was tomorrow and we could have our normal life back. I guess I better go turn on some Christmas music and the lights on the tree so I can get some Christmas spirit back.

It has been crazy! Scream a little bit for me too. I need a release.
The day after christmas, this darn tree is coming DOWN! I don't have the room. It's driving me nuts.
