Monday hit like a ton of bricks. I realized I had been coasting through the month of December, just doing the bare minimum on cleaning/laundry/bills.
Like most years, I am inside, staring down a cold and snowy January, determined to get my act together.
So, while I dig out from under my lazy Christmas (and dig out from the snow!), here are a few highlights from Christmas 2009.
This is Christmas Eve, right before Mass. For the THIRD year in a row, we have been stuck up in the "loft" of the church. It is actually where they intended a choir to sit, but you can't see anything in the actual church from there. It's a little bit like listening to church on a radio...all talk no action, which also results in some very restless children. We have decided we will need to camp out the night before to actually get seats next year.
