Ahhh getting back from holidays is a little sad, but kind of refreshing as well. I feel like I crave a little routine, as referenced by my nearly eating my husband's head when he suggested we go to the store in the middle of the day yesterday. It was naptime!
So we're all back to normal in my house, Christmas has been taken down and kids packed off to school. And, after taking two weeks off, I went to work out today and nearly barfed. Christmas food was not good to me.
Fun story time though! So I usually get really good Christmas presents from my hubs. He told me that it's because he's so Scrooge-y the rest of the year that he makes up for it at Christmas. I won't say that I agree because that would be mean of me. WINK. So I get excited for Christmas because I love love love watching my kids dive in and because I know I'm going to get something good because my hubs has excellent taste.
Of course, my husband only shops online. Which has never been a problem. Still, he ordered all of my stuff a couple weeks in advance and then kept tracking it to see when it would get to our house. For some reason, the packages kept getting delayed, but they were guaranteed to get to our house on Christmas Eve. I host a party at my house that day, so I was home waiting around for packages while cleaning and cooking. Still nothing. When everyone went home and it was time to open Christmas PJs, my entire Christmas -- we are talking 11 things -- didn't make it. So my husband called UPS. That's when we found out that the driver had just marked them all undeliverable and went home for the day. Awesome.
Luckily, I really do love Christmas for the kids, so we made the 25th all about them. My husband literally went to the distribution center to pick up the packages on the 26h because there was no way he was sending them on the truck again. SO I had a late Christmas, but it was totally OK! He did good and I'm decked out in all of the pretty things he picked out for me.
Want pics? OK!
I also got a ton of AWESOME Freaky Friday submissions over the holidays, so I'll be back on Friday with those. Meanwhile, I have work and episodes of Downton to catch up on. My husband also got me a swanky pair of noise-cancelling headphones so I can ignore my kids while watching. No, I haven't seen the Christmas Special... but I know it's sad. Don't tell me!
