The two littles are still napping and I curl my feet up under me in the chair, pull the blanket up under my chin, and stare at the colorful lights on the bare Christmas tree. Feeling motivated and energized the kids and I took all of the ornaments off both of the trees yesterday and packed them away for another year. But when it came time to take the trees to their resting place I just couldn't bring myself to do it. The glow of the lights just too inviting.
Normally by this time I am itching to get my house back to normal. Not only would the Christmas trees be packed away but my winter decorations would be down to the bare minimum as well. This year I am hanging on just a little longer. Enjoying it just a bit more.
Soon the boys will be home from school. Homework will be done. Snacks handed out. Then off to swim classes we'll go. Ever on the move.
For now I sit in my chair enjoying the glow.
