This year, with 4 preps, and more work than I can handle, the holidays feel like they are coming at my like a bullet train.
Thanksgiving – lovely, but a blur. Birthday – yes I am now 48 – was also lovely – treated to dinner at Sake Bomb, lots of lovely gifts, students singing happy birthday, lots of facebook greetings – but a blur.
Now the tree is up. The Advent wreath was made. The boys hung up outside lights – and that is as prepared as we are. No cards, no gifts, no meals or teacher gifts even planned. YIKES!
Somehow – we will get to the important day with the most important stuff done. But I miss those years when it was more leisurely – sigh.
