I worked from 10-6. Work wasn’t too busy…just playing catch up and tying up loose ends. When 4 o’clock came around, I was a bit surprised. I had no idea where the day went. I got some packing and other things done in between work stuff.
After work, I used up some leftover steak and made some steak fajitas. Nobody really ate any, but I sure enjoyed them. It was one of those days where everyone snacked all day and no one was really in dinner mode. Plus, Nate was out to a movie with Garry and Cindy.
Then I sat on the couch with the kids. Peyten picked out Max and Ruby to watch. Marked popped some popcorn for the kids. Peyten sat on my lap for a while. That rarely happens. She was being so sweet. Giving me kisses. Feeding me popcorn. She didn’t scream or hit me once, lol.
The next thing I know, I wake up and the kids are all in bed and it is 8 o’clock at night. Mark put the kids to bed and I was in la la land. I was just in one of those “my body is completely giving out in all ways” modes.
December has been stressful. Financially. Physically. Mentally. What other ways are there? Anyway, Christmas, work, kids, family, just everything. It has been insane. Am I complaining? Oh, not in the least. I truly enjoy it all.
But, today I was done with work…for a week. And Christmas is over. And the only thing I have to worry about is to pack and gear up for our trip tomorrow. I can handle that. If I only have one task to worry about, my body and mind were saying “ahhhh”. Seriously. I don’t want to think about anything in the next 4-5 days except where I am at that one time. Spending time with family.
My body gave out and I crashed because I knew it was time. Relief. And you can’t have relief like that, if you don’t have the crazy before it. I like extreme relief.
