I was going to snap a simple picture for a Wordless Wednesday post and then I realized I had too much to say (as usual.) So instead I thought I’d give you a little tour of our living space at this very moment. Let me warn you, it’s a DISASTER ZONE!
This is my poor kitchen. . .
. . .which as not seen much action this week. In part because it has turned into a dumping ground but also because I simply have not had enough time or energy to cook. I haven’t baked. :( I haven’t had time to whip up dinners or post some real ideas on GreenLiteBites. Two things that I absolutely LOVE to do.
By the way, my favorite part of the picture is the ketchup bottle left out from the last dinner I did cook.
Sad, I know.
Moving on to the Living Room which has become the Christmas wrapping station.
In a way it’s nice because every night the little guy and I wrap a handful of presents for the family. I’ve been involving him a lot on the giving side of Christmas. He’s helps us shop, picks out the wrapping paper, tapes and his favorite part, of course, cuts the paper. Why do kids LOVE to do the the very things that freak us out a little. It’s funny.
The one "person" who seems unaffected by it all is Irish. . .
She is still in the same position as I type this. It’s her spot. :)
Me? Well, I’m just going to keep smiling. . .
As I wrap up this year is it going to be crazy? Sure.
Will my house return to a normal state of only semi-messy? Of course.
Are my pants getting a little snug from being out of my routine? ohhhh yeah.
But who cares?!?
Life is good.
The craziness will subside. I will get back on a normal routine. In the meantime I’m enjoying myself. What’s the point of all the year end celebrations if all I do is stress about my messy house and tightening jeans. I will do what I always do and it will be fine as it always is. One day, one choice, at a time.
I hope you have (or are having) a WONDERFUL holiday. I’m not sure when I’ll be posting again. I have to put makeup and do that messy hair, then it’s off to work and tomorrow we travel to PA for Christmas. I may tweet now and then but more then likely I won’t be back on the blogs until Sunday.
Until then. . . have a great one!
