Christmas Hangover

I don't drink. My Christmas hangover is a result of too much stress and too little sleep! The cat has knocked the tree over at least 3 times and is on his way to a night outside in the cold if he doesn't knock it off. I keep finding ornaments all over the house that he snags and bats around all night. Staying up to help Santa get stuff under the tree was exhausting! Top that off with the early Christmas morning wake-up call from Little Man, a sugar filled breakfast of cinammon rolls and a bunch of toffee and other Christmas goodies and you've got the beginnings of what I am dealing with today.

When all was said and done though, it was a nice Christmas. Once I quit trying so hard to make it a nice Christmas, it kind of just fell into place. Next year's motto? Relax and enjoy the season!

The house looks like it has a hangover too. Needless to say we had a pretty laid back day today. Thanks gosh for the PS2 and new video games. Everybody was occupied. Tomorrow? We clean.

One thing to look forward to -- older teenagers don't have many "toys" to assemble late Christmas eve, so you can all go to bed earlier. AND teenagers will sleep in!! ok,ok . . . it's not quite the same as the excitement that comes with young kids (and I do miss that), but we got plenty of sleep.
