I'm Exhausted and the Holidays Aren't Even Here Yet

Okay it has been a very long week. My youngest daughter had her Holiday Dance show which took up two evenings if you include the dress rehearsal on Thursday night. After the dance show I had a holiday party to attend which I enjoyed very much, but had to leave early because my older daughter and I were volunteering on the Polar Express. The Polar Express was exhausting. Some of the moms do it every year and I honestly don't know how they do it. Today my mother-in-law and sister-in-law came to have a nice early holiday dinner with us. We always do Christmas a little early with them.

They just left a little while ago. We had a very nice after noon and the girls are excited about their gifts, but I'm exhausted. I cooked a big dinner and cleaned up the whole kitchen. Luckily my husband helped and the girls or I don't know how it would have gotten done. The dinner was really good and luckily there are leftovers which should make the week easier. I was worried about these au gratin potatoes I was making for the first time, but thankfully they were a big hit. A few people had seconds so that was a relief. I really don't like trying out recipes on company, but luckily it worked out.

This week looks to be even busier. The girls have things going on a school that I need to attend and well then there is Christmas Eve and Christmas. I love this time of year honestly I do. It's just that I end up feeling I'm being pulled in too many directions and there just isn't enough time to get everything done. Oh well there is no way around it. I'm just simply going to sleep all day on December 26th.
