I'm trying not to think about how few days are left of my vacation. I am one of the lucky few that is off from Christmas to New Years Day, every year. My office completely shuts down and I love it! So many of my friends and relatives had to go back the day after Christmas and I think that is such a shame. The countdown to Christmas can be so crazy that I can't see how you could enjoy it if you didn't get this quiet family time afterward.
We've been busy cleaning out the garage, kitchen drawers and cabinets with plenty of time left over to watch movies together and just be still. I feel like our family has bonded this Christmas in an extra special way and it makes me so happy.
I'm so looking forward to 2012 in a way I've never been before. I'm ready, bring it on!!!
