Thought I'd share one of my Christmas presents with you --
Rick bought me this on CafePress.com, and I flipping LOVE it! I love pink, and then, well... there's the pie.
We have had pie in the house for the holidays and as I sit here in jeans, I can tell that I, um, partook too much, methinks. But who can turn down cherry! Pumpkin! Key lime! And a coconut cake. It's not pie, but it's an awesome, awesome cake.
I've loved this holiday time. Every year Rick takes off a week or so, the older boys come for a long visit, and it's just a lovely, relaxing time. One of my favorite parts of this time off is the lack of guilt for lying about reading. My brain is so messed up from this past year that the devouring of books has helped tremendously.
I've tried to make jewelry -- but for some reason, it's not coming to me. Soon. But right now, the brain is on survival mode and is telling me to chill.
(Isn't that a cute picture of Zack at three years old?)
take some time to be good to yourself.
The payoff is tremendous.
