I am looking forward to today, though, and looking forward to the week to come. I’m just going to do what I can to make peace with the holiday, and make peace with my family not being able to come home for Christmas, by creating my own family memories and happiness. Today we are going to get some breakfast and then decorate our house. We got the perfect tree. The best we’ve ever bought. Tomorrow I’m going to try to finish up some graphics projects and get some blog design comps to a client. And then I’m taking the rest of the week for me. I have cookies and bread to bake, the last of my shopping to do, tutu’s to make, and presents to wrap. My husband has Friday off so I think we are going to let Ben stay home and we can decorate cookies. I need a hair cut. I may even splurge and get a holiday mani/pedi. I can’t afford it though. And then we are off and running, this way and that.
I’m looking forward to peace, though.
