Slight Turbulence

Bring it on, bring it on, bring it on. From here to the eyes and the ears of the 'verse, that's my motto. Or at least it would be, if I start having a motto.

The Day After Christmas

Leave a comment

It’s the day after Christmas. Everyone is calm. The initial thrill of new things has worn off. Probably due to a lot of eating and a lot of socializing and a lot of staying up later than usual. In exchanging season greetings via text with friends, who I wish I could see more of, someone commented that I hadn’t been posting to my blog in a while. That prompted me to challenging myself to pick up my random musings again.

The DH had to work today and KidC had already declared he wanted to do “absolutely nothing” today (he’s gotten hooked on Fringe via Netflix). The girls played to my lack of preparation and called my parents, inviting them to the movies and lunch. I tagged along for the free food and entertainment. That, and I really did not want to straighten tissue paper and flatten boxes for future gift wrapping needs.

Reflecting on the season I must admit it took me a bit to get into the “holiday spirt.” I looked at decorating as a chore. I considered gift shopping a task list to get through. I wanted to get through all the motions as quickly as possible. Fortunately for me, everyone else around me, my co-workers, my friends, my family, were cheerful and bright and full of joy.

Tonight, in the quiet of KidC getting through another season of Fringe, KidA working on her Trevi Fountain Lego structure, KidI creating tricks on the Indo Board while watching The Princess Bride, and the DH at the fire house, I am happy and content.
