I love to be organized but rarely am. Christmas always comes so fast. I think I enjoy the day-to-day too much to stop and lay out a plan and prepare. With the help of digital scrapbooking though, I do have to toot my horn over the fact I actually mailed out Christmas cards to family this year for the first time in quite a few years. It gave me a ridiculous sense of pleasure to have accomplished that.
We have been enjoying an early Christmas present. We finally got a Wii. Because our last name starts with Z we named it the Zii Wii. I had been hearing the kids play, but I had never played it myself. One night recently I tried it for the first time and now I am hooked! I think it is so fun, and we had a fantastic, very blessed time as a family, bowling, tennis, golf, etc. One thing about me...I don't appear to be competitive. The truth is though, I am a closet competitor. I love to win. Jack loves to golf in real life so we have had some interesting games. The bottom line is that this has been very good for our family and very good for me. I am sure I am using muscles I haven't used in over a decade.
In other news, last Saturday was a cozy holiday snowy kind of feeling day. The kids had always wanted to see what I would look like with straight hair so that was our indoor entertainment for the afternoon. Having been ultra-curly my whole life, I really was quite amazed and so were they. They feel like they have a new mama. Not sure how long or often I will keep it straight, but it is a fun adventure.
Here is one of me and Molly.
Well, I should go plan. There is a lot to do in these remaining days.
