Why do I do this to myself???
I am beginning to freak out. I have not been home for an evening since, well I honestly can’t remember. My tree is up, but has no ornaments. My house is a pit. I haven’t had time to make the presents that need made, nor wrap the ones that I have bought.
We have done some very fun things, but I’m beginning to lose my mind. Between the many parties, church services, meetings, theatre classes or performances, and kid commitments, I hardly have time to take a breath.
This week we had a family Christmas party, praise team practice, church, served dinner at another church, vocabulary class, word study class, allergy shots, physical therapy, Christmas caroling with theatre kids, Boy Scouts, a production meeting for Mulan Jr., an advertising committee meeting, birthday party for E’s friend, Winnie-the-Pooh waitress, work Christmas party, and I babysat overnight for my darling baby nephew. Are you tired? I sure am.
Tomorrow we have to be at both church services to sing, and the boys are supposed to spend the day with their Sunday school class (making/eating lunch, crafts, and then caroling at a nursing home.) We can’t. I have to seriously put my foot down and just say no. The rest of our week is as crazy as last week. We need a day off (OK, at least an afternoon). I don’t think I can physically or mentally do it. Thank God that we get out for Christmas break on Friday.
