I think I am going a little nuts in this house right now. I think I need to start a new trend of recital and kids parties in January when life is slow again. Wrangling a three year old through a two hour piano recital was a mental workout. We exhausted all snacks and art projects in the first hour but the recital just kept going and going. Next time I think I will see if Q can go play at someone's house while we go. As a child I remember a slow calm progression to Christmas with my mom. Now by the time I was in school I was the only one at home so maybe that was it, but one school Christmas program and we were done. Mom seemed to never be rushing around frazzled.
Girlfriends I was frazzled yesterday. Not a vision of my mom at all. I think we have busied up the holidays too much but maybe that is just my homebody self resisting all the trips here and there and all the squares on my calendar filled with writing that I am fighting.
I have a desire to just stay home and play Christmas music and clean house and bake lots of cookies and finish wrapping my gifts and not feel rushed. Does anyone relate to this?
