Journal Your Christmas, Day 27
Most Christmases are pretty low-energy for us. This year, I decided not to plan very much, figuring that would keep things every more low-key. WRONG! It turned out that with an open schedule, we succumbed to the temptation of “just one more quick get-together” and before we knew it, from 4 pm on the 24th to 5 pm on the 26th, pretty much every waking hour (and there were many more waking ones than there were sleeping ones!) was filled with some kind of focused activity. By the end of the day on the 26th, we both had splitting headaches and were thoroughly exhausted. It felt so good to sleep for 10 hours last night! I desperately needed to recharge my batteries, so I also spent most of today just tidying up & clearing off my desk & playing catch up. Tonight, I will dream deep dreams of snowflakes falling from the sky, accumulating in large quantities. Tomorrow morning, I look forward to venturing out into the snow!
