I know I've been quiet, but I haven't had anything pleasant to say publicly. So I said nothing at all. I have posts written in my head, but I don't get them out. It's the holidays! Happy face! Whee!
Anyway, 'Santa' made it to my house at about 3:00am today. The boy wouldn't go to sleep until 12:30 AM...yes, 12:30 a.m. Killing me he is. I didn't even get to start cooking anything for my mom's house until almost 9:00pm! I finished at 2:00am. Tomorrow I only need to do the main dish and I'm good to go! My mom had to have surgery so I get to do the cooking this year. Hopefully it turns out as planned.
Also, next time I let Noah open a Christmas Eve gift, I need to make it the easiest one to construct. Suffice to say, my hands are jacked up now from a bungy cord on a trampoline...not single mom friendly at all. More on that later.
Today we watched Santa make his way across the world. I kept thinking, what a great way to teach kids geography! Although, according to that map, Santa came by at 11:30p and Noah would've gotten skipped for being awake! LoL
The ex is supposed to be coming over before 8:00am. I'm debating if I should just try to nap on the couch...again. I'm just wondering if he's going to bring his gifts for Noah with him and if they'll upstage mine. Isn't that weird to think? I shouldn't care, but I do. Oh well. He can help me carry out all the boxes with my food items! It won't be a long visit anyway since we have to leave at 11:00am for my mom's house.
Ok, must nap or will be sleeping in my dinner at the table! LOL
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas everyone.
