Post-Christmas musings

Usually I suffer from post-holiday sadness. You know the feeling - all the work you've put into the holidays and it's over so quickly. But this year I'm not feeling that. It was a great time and the day seemed to last forever. Now, the only sadness I have is that my house still needs more cleaning (and will for days to come, I'm sure. Next year someone get me a post-Christmas maid! LOL).

I was horrible about taking photos yesterday though. I hate all the photos of kids opening their presents, so took only a few. I wish I would have thought to get photos of the kids with all their grandparents, but I totally zoned it out and enjoyed the day without much thought to the camera. Darn it!

Went post-Christmas shopping today and didn't find much. I need a new tree skirt but paying $15-20 for one still seems steep to me. I'm hoping some will still be left when the prices go down even more. I did buy a few rolls of wrapping paper and some kid makeup things for Carissa's birthday party favors, all at 50% off.

Sometimes its great just to relax and keep the memories for yourself - (enjoy the moment) - instead of worrying about taking pictures.
