I did something a bit unusual the day after Christmas. Or rather I didn’t do something.
Usually, I take my tree and all the trimmings down like clockwork each December 26th. However, I left the tree up and out to enjoy for a bit longer this time.
It seems as though the world is speeding ahead (already) to looking to the New Year. I’m instead enjoying the last few days of 2018.
Things felt so rushed the week before Christmas and right up to the big day. I like having this time after to slow down and relax.
I like eating cookies for breakfast. A lot. My sister-in-law brought a little surprise Christmas gift for me (and my other sister-in-law) on Christmas morning. I really liked this fun gift: And my other sister-in-law brought us her “good” sugar cookies (as my boys refer to them) and cherry chip meringue cookies (my favorite!).
I really like eating cookies for breakfast. However, I did not like the number on the scale this morning. Time to give the cookies for breakfast routine a rest. Until next Christmas.
After Santa’s visit:
Between Christmas And New Year’s Day
I really like the slower pace of this week even if it’s hard on all those type A personalities out there. My poor husband is a bit confused by the wife who always takes the tree down the day after Christmas, not doing it this year.
How do you spend the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day?
