Why is life so hectic around Christmas???? This should be a season that we are able to relax, to spend time with our family, to celebrate the birth of our Savior. Instead, everyone rushes around to buy a bunch of stuff they can’t afford in order to try to make someone they love “happy.”
I feel like I am going in a million directions lately…. Work is unbelievably hectic. We are short-handed and we have two major things going on that is causing an influx of paperwork. Frankie’s dad had surgery this past Tuesday. They went in to remove a tumor that appears to be cancerous, but they won’t know for sure until this coming week. So I’ve had to had someone watch Alyx (thanks guys…. you really helped us a lot!), but it has been an extra 30-40 minutes to drive in the morning and in the evening. Then, we had a meeting on Tuesday and Alyx’s dance classes are every Thursday. I have Alyx’s, my niece’s, both of my sisters-in-laws’, my nephews’, my mom’s, and my dad’s birthdays this month. Which I haven’t gotten cards for any yet! Which reminds me… I haven’t done our Christmas cards yet either. And I guess, at some point I need to think about getting Alyx something for her birthday and Christmas. And the list goes on…..
Hopefully your Christmas season is much more relaxing than mine!
