Getting real.

I just wrote, posted, shared, and then deleted, a silly and very fake Christmas letter.

Why do all that?


Because I'm tired. This last six months has been wonderful, exciting, fantastic and LONG. And I am zonked.

How zonked?

Too tired to talk on the phone. THAT is how tired I am.

But it's a good tired. Just so's ya know.

Very good.

But now, it's a week before Christmas and I have to do a few things. Like bake and decorate and anticipate and all the festive stuff that needs doing.

And what else? Oh, yeah, SLOW DOWN.

Slow down.

Intentionally do not work on my book.

Turn off Facebook. 

Ignore Twitter ( I do most of the time anyway), the news, email and just about anything that isn't tangible.

Watch cheesy movies and play Christmas music. Bake again, because the kids ate the "I'm going to get ahead of things and bake 3 weeks before Christmas" baking.

Oh, and count my blessings. 

Why? Because, like the old song says ....

    1. Hugs back!!
      I'm so looking forward to just relaxing...said every mother ever.

  2. I get it. I'm there. A few days before you. Meet you on the couch. :)

    1. Can we meet on YOUR couch? I'll bring the chocolates.

  3. I'll miss you if you turn off FB, but your sanity is much more important than my redhead fix. :-)
    Merry Christmas!

    1. Maybe I should just set a time to ignore it? Not turn it off altogether?

  4. I'd miss you if you turned off FB, too. Merry Christmas!

  5. Slow down?

    Nay, matey. He who falls behind is left behind.


  6. And THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART for getting rid of the security "sign reading"!!!!!!!!
