This weekend I decorated for Christmas. Well, Maybelline and I decorated. I'm tired this season. But the house is looking prettier.
Frosty says hi!
Except there's no tree. No energy to get a tree.
Lest you think this is all about my health (and there's some of that), it's just been a busy season this year. Working more than usual. And prepping for yesterday.
Our church hosts Toys for Tots every year, and this year there were more than 6,000 children. There's live-action singing and dancing for kids while their parents "shop" for their gifts. Santa's there. Drinks and cookies for all. It's a great event. And just about every one of our 3,000 people volunteer their time to make it happen, and happen well.
I didn't volunteer. My entire family did, but I did not.
C'mon. Someone's gotta take care of all of those children of volunteers. I'd be one of those someones.
So if you'll excuse me, I'm going back to bed. The children are all off to school. It's Monday. Time for a nap. The cleaning and decorating fairy can let herself in.
Until I write again ...
