December Daily – Day 27

Calm

Image Complements of The Graphics Fairy

There is an incredible quiet to life now. There is nowhere to go and nothing in particular to do. Life has slowed down. It is the idle time as we await the New Year. I have used this time to clear some of the clutter from my house as well as complete some chores that have been neglected. I thought that I would use a lot of this time to journal but I have really used it as down time. It is nice to have down time but I think this also creates some feelings of guilt. It is often difficult to slow down especially after the rush of the holiday. I do think it is important to take time for yourself. Try not to feel guilty about it.

Birthday

It is also my husbands birthday today. Wish him a Happy Birthday if you get a chance!

December Daily – Day 26

Culmination

I feel a mix of relief and disappointment and complete OVERWHELM. The holidays were amazing and my family was so very generous. Now, it is my job to figure out where will I put all of these new items. My daughter wants to open every box and immediately play with the toys ranging from painting projects to slime and the dreaded GLITTER component. I did use today to clean the clutter from the table and organize some of the items. I put half of my daughters toys away on some advice I received from a friend. On a rainy or boring day we can peruse the box looking for things to do and new toys to play with. This will help to remind us of our Christmas blessings many times during the year.
