Monday's Random Musings

Mrs. Nurse Boy here.
It feels so good to be home, back in a routine, and all of the Christmas clutter put in it's proper place. I am delighted when everything has a place. When it doesn't, I become just as scattered as my clutter.

Since it is Monday, I will share some random thoughts regarding the last two weeks. Some "take aways," if you will...

**Nurse Boy and I cut back our spending this Christmas for various reasons. Apparently, we forgot to send the memo out to all of the grandparents and aunts and uncles. I present to you, EXHIBIT A:

I call this Christmas barf. All over my family room. If you look closely, you can actually see the greedy delight reflecting from Bruiser's eyes.

**Every year one of the kids must have a Christmas meltdown when they are coming off of their sugar high. EXHIBIT B:

It all started innocent enough...




Sweet Pea being not so sweet.

**How did our parents ever travel for long trips in the car without a DVD player? I gain more respect for them every time we venture out of town! Man, I LOVE that DVD player!!! It is a must have for a long trip.

**As crazy as the holiday season was, I love it when we get to spend quality time with the kids without all of the regular daily distractions. I get to marvel at how much I love each one of them. They really are great kids. It brings me so much delight when a friend or family member feels the need to tell me how good my kids are. I need that reminder. THEY need that reminder. Raising them is a job I(we) take very seriously. Unfortunately, we are not perfect, nor are they. It was good to hear it so many times over the holiday. (I do realize that I will pay for posting this. I am sure it will be a rough week since I am enforcing everything I let slide over the last two weeks :0)

**It was refreshing to spend sometime with family and friends that we don't get to see enough of...EXHIBIT C

Here's to a happy, healthy, productive and BLESSED New Year!!!!!
