i do this to myself every time. i have this vision in my head, and i don’t get things done i want to do, because i do not have them exactly as i have planned in my head. then i get annoyed, angry, frustrated, the usual. my head is really not a forgiving place to be.
anyway, that is how it went down for watch the polar express on our holiday bucket list.
time was crucial, we were running out of time, we had wrapped up the basketball tournament and were on the last night before christmas eve. we were grouping have a ‘hot chocolate bar’ and the ‘watch polar express’ together into one night of fun.
you see, when i added have a hot chocolate bar to the holiday bucket list, i pictured it to look like this:
mine wasn’t even worthy of a picture. i laid on the couch and the kids popped some hot chocolate cups in the kurig and grabbed the redi whip out of the fridge and most likely squirted it in their mouth. im am not certain of that why you ask? oh that is because i was asleep on the couch as i had fallen asleep during the polar express.
this holiday season has kicked my butt, well leading up to it i should say. between basketball games, work, more work holiday sale i am just done. getting sick for 4 days didn’t help either, i just couldn’t muster up the energy.
but you know what? we did spend an entire evening together at home. we did snuggle in on the couch and i am certain that the 4 biggest blessing in my life believe. the christmas spirit was there and that is a success with whipped cream on the top.
now, to finish up that holiday bucket list.
