You know it was a good Christmas when…..


When the last gift is opened and the last bit of wrapping has been tossed, its time to evaluate the holiday.

When the last dish of leftovers has been sent off, and the kitchen is clean again, its time to look back and see how it went.

This was a wicked good Christmas.

How do I know?

I know because I am completely and totally beat.  My stomach is rebelling at the thought of another dinner.  I don’t even want a glass of wine.  I’m happy that all three kids will be gone by bedtime, that Ellie is at her house, that no one needs me for one single thing.

This must have been a spectacularly successful Christmas, because all that I want now is a an early bedtime and a late wake up in the morning.

Happy “Phew, Glad That’s All Done” Day to you all!

  1. I couldn’t agree more Karen! I love the pre-Christmas decorating, baking and festivities but also love the post-Christmas relaxing and reflecting on what a great Christmas it was. Happy new year to you and your family!


    • Happy New Year to you and yours, Karen! Paul just asked if I wanted to go see a movie tonight, and I answered “NO!” before he got to the end of the sentence! Spending today in flannel pants with a book on my lap!
