oh yeah, the home tours make it look nice and calm and all decorated, but let’s get a little dose of reality, shall we? My kids have had a snow days for the past 2 days with the weather, and my plans have gone out the window with the in and out and close the door! and mom I have to go to the bathroom now and the snow pants zipper is stuck and the UPS man almost fell on our driveway and says we need to shovel and what are all those boxes with the arrow smiley face on them and can we have more cocoa and can tom and dick and harry and sally come over to play and can we make something for our teachers and where is my boot and Landon is unplugging the Christmas tree lights and Mom! we’re out of milk and Mom! why are you in the closet with all the treats the neighbors sent over?
Not a present is wrapped, trying to get the rest of Christmas cards out today, plus packages out for family serving missions, make the yearly calendar for Grandma, old appliances on Craigslist so I can park the van in there again so I don’t have to scrape, taking my husband out tonight for a surprise early Christmas present: TRON 3D and Bonzai burger, but that means I have to shower and actually get ready and smell good and get everything ready for the babysitter. I realize I put most of this on myself and I’m not complaining, and I sure as heck probably shouldn’t be taking a few minutes to post, I’m feeling kind of fake looking at all of these calm and beautiful pictures on my blog and just wanted to let you know that as much as I try to plan and be organized it’s usually more downright C.R.A.Z.Y. around here than not.
