Struggling to get through the morning today. Johnny has bronchitis, Molly's cold is still lingering and now I have a cold. This is the year of the never ending colds. We have been sick off and on since the beginning of October! It's really starting to put a damper on my Christmas spirit. I'm grateful that I had the sense to get shopping done early this year and we did finally set up our tree, but the house is a mess, my kids are grumpy and I'm exhausted, so I'm not feeling any holly jollyness around here.
I'm hoping we finally start feeling better by tomorrow and I can get my Christmas spirit on. I promise my next post will not only be wearing a bad awesome Christmas sweater, while dancing to Brenda Lee's Rockin' Around the Christmas tree and sipping on eggnog, but it will smell of fresh pine needles and sugar cookies. I'll get this family into the Christmas season even if it means taping my eye lids open and drinking all the caffeine I can get.
