You know what's irritating? When someone doesn't update their blog. Really burns my britches.
Oh, wait. I don't update my blog. Ignore the previous comment.
I know this sounds ridiculous, but there is just SO MUCH GOING ON RIGHT NOW. I know, everyone has a lot going on in December. But honestly? I always imagined myself as this sweet little domestic goddess, working full time, taking care of H, decorating my house for Christmas, getting handmade cards sent out by December 1, etc.
Basically, I was totally delusional. For example, my "holiday" cards are currently sitting on my desk, in various states of doneness. And they are totally photo cards printed from Shutterfly. Also, notice how they are now "holiday" cards instead of "Christmas" cards? Yeah, that's because I'm hoping to have them out by New Year's. Or Epiphany. Or Valentine's Day. Whatever.
I actually drove H to daycare yesterday, on snowy roads, just so that I could drive back home and spend my vacation day doing "mama" stuff.
My resolution for the new year? Lower my expectations.
*Hope everyone had a wonderful December. Even though it was a tad bit stressful (and I'm secretly glad it's almost over), we really did love this year.
**Happy Birthday M + J Cabrera!
