Some of the best days, at least in my book, are the ones that follow Christmas. I know a lot of people feel a big let-down after Christmas but for me I find these days comforting. Partially because I find Christmas overwhelmingly stressful (Did I help my children create lasting memories? Am I over-doing the gift giving? Am I under-doing it? Did I forget someone's gift? Where did I put __________? You get the idea.) and partly because I'm a creature of habit. While it's fun to have a change I find great comfort in the day-to-day happenings.
And so, in the days that imminently follow Christmas, we get to enjoy all of the lovely gifts we received (and gave) we don't have a lot planned (everyone is still re-cooperating!) and our days are slower and plan-less. Just what this mama needs!
