Slow Motion

Chug.chug.chug goes the mommy running out of steam.  Things have really slowed down around here, and I feel simultaneously relieved and bored.  Does that ever happen to you?  I feel like one of my kids – so eager for a break, and then dully staring at the walls, wondering what to do.

What have we been doing?  Watching movies, going to the library, reading, playing on the computer, generally just hanging out as a family.  Daughter H14 surprised me today and made all the kids lunch, told them to get dressed, and then took them ALL (toddler included!) to the neighborhood park to play.  It’s actually nice and quiet in my house right now!  I promised her some of the secret Christmas chocolate stash upon their return.

Husband, toddler, and I will brave the crowds for a few last-minute items today, but other than that, more relaxation is on the agenda for today.  And tomorrow.  And the day after that.  Etc, etc, etc.  Isn’t vacation awesome?
