I am thrilled to say that it is finally here. The kids are finished school, I am finished work, the Christmas shopping is done, all the cards are written, all the field trips are complete, the school parties, concerts and events are behind us and the teacher gifts are given
I am finished and I am done.
I absolutely loved the Christmas holidays as a kid. I have to say, though, that I love them even more as a parent. I have the next seventeen days with no school lunches to pack, no meetings to attend, no school e-mails to answer, no lost library books to find, no morning rush to slog through and no torturous last minute trip forms to fill out.
And all I can say is…yippeeeeeeeeee!
All that I need to do now, once my vacation alert is set, is to enjoy the fun, the freedom, the joy and the family time that is Christmas.
What a feeling!
