Did you guys have a great Christmas? Hopefully you got everything you wanted. I did pretty well. Thankfully Drew didn’t give me a printer again (yes, Drew got me a printer TWICE) and I got some good loot. My favorite being a gravity blanket, a Google Home Hub and this coat. My kids made out big time with enough presents to cover our house in glitter, slime and teeny, tiny parts for a year.
Anyways… does anyone else have a little bit of a Christmas hangover? Not the one with the bad headache and dry mouth (although I had a little of that too) but just being bummed out that Christmas is all over. Just like that. All the prep and present buying, decorating and baking, wrapping and planning – and it’s all done. I can’t help but being a little sad that it’s all over.
It didn’t help that our house looked like it was ransacked this morning. As I approached the living room, I debated turning around, hiding my head under the covers and pretending the mountain of wrapping paper was just an illusion. Since that wasn’t an option, I had a mild panic attack and then let my OCD cleaning habits kick in. Two hours and two trips to the dumpster later, it looked somewhat normal in our house. Fun fact: I get an odd sense of satisfaction and joy from taking piles of crap to the dumpster. Yeah, I already know I’m a weirdo.
