First and foremost...the horrendous clean-up! It literally looked as if a tornado hit my living room...and the boy's room. I am certain everyone...especially those with kids...can relate.
Then, it is trying to find room for all the new toys, clothes, gadgets, etc! Every year before Christmas comes, I go through my closets and make the boys go through theirs to get rid of any old and un-used clothes and toys to take to Goodwill. Although...there still never seems to be enough room.
You see...we live in a shoebox. That's what I call it anyways...."Our Shoebox". We are actually looking for a bigger place after the 1st of the year. Now with 5 of us (including the pups), this place just isn't cutting it. Unfortunately though, with a bigger place...will come bigger bills.
Next...it's kind of depressing to me how we all spend so much time and money planning for this big day...then it's all over in the blink of an eye.
Another downer that comes along with the holiday season is the season for fevers, runny noses & sore throats...all of which I woke up with today.
However...I don't want to end this post without saying that I did have a GREAT holiday despite the stress & headaches.
I was surrounded by loving family and Santa was too good to me and the boys as usual.
