Well I have lived through another Christmas. I don't think I have stopped running since last Tuesday. I'm exhausted. During the holidays my family becomes the most stuck together bunch in the world.
Now you might think that is normal but the truth is that my husband and I are doing good to get together once a week with one of our girls little on all three and even to see all three in a week at different times is pretty much impossible. There is one that we're doing good to see her once a month and she only lives ten minutes away.
Then comes the holidays and things change quick. Suddenly we are having lunch together then dinner and even breakfast. This goes on for days. I love our girls and grandchildren but all of them at once and almost constantly will wear a person out. Don't get me wrong I love it but by the time the holidays are over Buddy and I are ready to hide in a corner for a few days and recover. It isn't so much being with everyone but the constant running here and there. I swear we must spend more on gas during that week than if we took a 1000 mile road trip both ways.
Buddy and I will now get to relax the next few days and calm our frazzled nerves and be quiet for a while. Let's face it old people get tired quickly.
I did have an amazing Christmas and although all my girls were more than generous I have to say Buddy and Gina really knocked it out of the ball park this year. Buddy got me my dream color printer and Gina, well I'll just have to add a pic. To say she got me a blanket just doesn't cover it. My family is awesome, all of them.
