Sometimes I wish I were a night person. Our kids still go to bed early. The house is quiet and still and it’s a perfect opportunity to get things done! I can’t tell you how many times I have thought to myself, “I can do that tonight once the kids are in bed!” But then the time comes… despite my best intentions, I get in my pajama’s, crawl into my warm bed, turn off all the Christmas twinkly lights, and go to sleep!
The good new is, I am wide awake in the morning! (Especially after my coffee…) So while the house is not cozy and dark with twinkling Christmas lights, I do have the beautiful morning sun coming through the windows and a warm cup of coffee to sip and I can get to work. It’s so nice now that the kids are older and I am able to simply shut the door and say, “Go play!”
All that to say, the presents are (70%) wrapped, and we are one step closer to being ready for Christmas!
