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?

    I am enjoying quiet too! My boys are playing at my Aunt’s house and it was just me and my girl this morning. Then she went to a friends house to play so I could do some last minute errands. Now she and her friend are here… outside playing. I refuse to leave the house again until sometime after Christmas day. If it isn’t here we aren’t eating/unwrapping/just plain having it!!! Enjoy your down time too, and way to help H14!
