Every year I find myself drawn to a simpler Christmas all the way around.
My mind seems so full these days-I hate that little panic feeling that can creep up–it’s creeping up right now. For me, it’s not getting “it” all done…I know I can eventually. It’s getting it done and enjoying doing it, instead of feeling out of sorts and frazzled. I think it’s because last week was a complete wash around here-poor Janey wasn’t feeling well, and I ended up taking her in to the doctor’s office-what I thought was just teething was also an ear infection. And then the medicine I have to give her makes her have an awful stomach ache. EEEK! It is funny how much things change from when I had a baby nineteen years ago. I just wanted the plain pink amoxycillin!!!, none of this fancy new stomach-ache inducing antibiotic which just trades one problem for another. Anyways, she is feeling so much better ear-wise and finally, finally, took a good nap today.
Here is our tree in the upright position. The needles are pouring off of it already. Not for lack of watering, just because it was probably cut down in October. Everything is so plain but I love it.
