Is a nice quiet day off! I’ve been so tired these past couple weeks since I’ve been back to work. The baby has been sleeping for longer stretches at night, sometimes for as long as five hours. Unfortunately, his wake up time has been around 4am. He usually eats and tries to go back to sleep, but of course Mommy can’t get back to sleep!
I’m so thankful to be back at work, making money so I can do things for my family, but I still feel as if I’m not on a schedule. Okay, in addition to being an introvert, I’m also a very regimented individual. From my college days I learned that if I didn’t keep myself on a strict schedule I easily fell behind and didn’t feel complete. I live by schedules (even on vacations, much to my husband’s chagrin), but it’s the way I’ve learned to live!
I also feel that Christmas is more for the children to begin to understand the true meaning behind Christmas. I don’t need my family to spend their money on a bunch of gifts for me or use their free time searching for a perfect gift. I would much rather spend time with my family, watch the children enjoy themselves, and “celebrate” my son’s first Christmas. After all…He is the reason for this day, right? Merry CHRISTmas
