We had our mission trip, it was great, the kids worked their butts off and I think had fun in the process. I am glad that I can make that happen for them. My dining room and kitchen are a mess because i dumped everything last night, I was SOOO tired. Thankfully its still all here today, you can do what you can do, and i was tired and hungry when I got home (I didn't get a chance to eat dinner, I just wanted to get everything done and go home - I guess I could have but chose not to).
That all being said, here comes the holidays.
I wish I could skip them. I just don't want to celebrate this year. Can we just skip to December 26th and be done with it? I know that is so not like me, but really, seriously, I just don't want to. I want to get Phyllis gifts because I love buying her stuff (I realize that I shouldn't but I do!) and I'm not sure how to change my attitude about it, or even what's my deal, I just don't want to. Maybe its because my life is busy enough, like I need more tasks? I don't know. Maybe it's all the money that's going to be spent or that winter is coming... a combination of the three... just praying that my attitude changes.
but on a bright note, my walk in closet for all my stuff is almost done, Muscle Mike got it going when I was gone. It's not fancy but I wanted practical (and relatively cheap) and it exactly what I wanted and instead of drywall on the outside, it's pegboard so I can hang stuff (Ridiculous I know, but that's what I wanted!!
Trying to remember... It is not always when we have something that we celebrate.
