Post Christmas Doldrums

We're in the slump between Christmas and New Year's when we mostly lie around and play with our new Christmas gifts. I'm planning to hop over to the MLA. Geeky Boy has a birthday party today. We have a New Year's party to attend and then it will be back to work and school.

I definitely enjoy the lack of schedule but I'm so not used to it. My life has be a relentless schedule for the past 3 months. Last night was the first night I slept well. I'd toss and turn, thinking about stuff I needed to do, worrying about the kids. I just haven't been able to wind down, plus I've had the virus which seems to be going away now. It was the kind of virus that sapped the energy out of me, but not quite enough to be incapacitating. I'd get up in the morning and by noon, I'd feel like I needed a nap.

I think one of my resolutions for the new year is going to be to relax a little. Do less. Enjoy more.
