What a week. I can’t believe how busy I have been. I’m getting ready for the holidays. My house is all the decorated. Every room and corner of the house has been decorated and ready for the holiday. Today, I just finished my youngest son’s room. He will be back from college in a few days. I can’t wait to see his face. It looks festive. I just put a small blue tree in front of his window, a pair of nutcrackers on his desk, a bowl of candy, and a cute snowman on top of his TV. He’s so spoiled.
Yesterday, I did some of the groceries for the party, and the menu has been selected. I always have two activities one on Christmas Eve with the entire family and the second on Christmas Day with the kids and grandkids. My shopping is almost done, only one gift left, my husband. Then, the hard part is wrapping all of them- that’s a challenge.
I feel the happiness of the season, but at the same time a little stress out. Usually, the holidays cause all this mix emotions. The memories of my childhood always present, especially my mother. This is the time that I missed her the most.
I have one more week of work before my Christmas vacation will start. The school has a two week of vacation, so I better rest and enjoy the time.
I’m getting ready for bed; tomorrow will be the start of the countdown for our vacation. We will start the week with a potluck, then on the Tuesday exchange of gifts, and the rest of the week with candies and lots of sweetness. It’s fun and that’s one of the reasons I love my job.
I want to hear from my readers. How everyone is doing at this time of the year? Are you ready for the holidays? Because I think I’m ready.
See you soon.
