This Post is Not About Chicken

(Though I am feeling a bit chicken about beginning the Christmas season.)

The whirlwind of activity has begun. We have an event or family get-together scheduled for each of the next few days. Physically, all of my Christmas preparations are complete. The lists are all done. Each item is checked off. Emotionally, well, I guess I'm as ready as I'll ever be.

I just need to take a deep breath.

The introvert in me is crying out for a quiet, routine day at home. A regular day with three healthy kids. A day without all the extra stuff, fluff and razz-matazz of the season.

My goodness, I need a hot bubble bath and an uninterrupted night's sleep.

Deep breath.
