Jip, just feeling very blah and tired. I guess it is expected after the very busy year we had. Work wise it has been hugely stressful and very very busy. I also found the decisions regarding Mr L and keeping him back very emotional. I am tired, run down and exhausted. Working late last night certainly did not help .I am also spoiled in the sleep department and Mr L waking up last night in absolute terror (something about a snake - he somehow is very scared of snakes and lizards and crocodiles) and struggling to fall asleep again.Grade 1 also kicked my whatsisname this year, but I think once we have been through it the rest will be easier to follow.But I know by now that every year around this time I take ans emotional dip - I just think the year gets too long. Does anybody else feel that way?
I have no inspiration for Christmas preparations and I am totally happy that we keep it as low key as possible. Same for holiday issues - we still have not made a real call on if and what we will do or any agreements with the in laws around December/Christmas whatever. The only thing we do know is that we are not going where we planned to - yes, we still want to go there, but next year when we know without a doubt that the boys are water safe. This year, I am too tired to worry if we go away and what we will do. I am totally happy staying home but I am under no illusion that the holiday will get very long for 3 little people and a break in space can be a good thing.For now, I am looking forward to spend time at home, organizing and so forth.
Same for my birthday - no inspiration here. We have our Bookclub's annual Christmas dinner on the evening of my birthday which actually makes it lovely to spend an evening with 10 friends for my birthday without organizing anything. Hunter is totally ok that I go and the two of us will do something special the weekend before as well as with the kids.
I had a whole post in the back of my mind about being a working mom as yesterday was just a total mess up of circumstances resulting in me not getting much work done (thus working so late last night) and driving to school and back twice during the course of the day, just and hour and a half apart. But let's leave it at that and get on with the ever mounting piles of work.
BTW - glasses still not found. Now he keeps saying something about the TV - we have looked everywhere there, and pulled back the cabinet, but we shall do it again tonight.
So anybody else not really into the festive season mood this year?
