The best thing about Winter Break is the excuse to do absolutely nothing at all.
It's the fact that I don't have to do anything productive in the next two weeks.
Dishes can pile up.
Laundry can pile up.
Clutter can pile up.
And I won't care.
Ok, that's a total lie.
I really don't start vacations until the house is clean (is anyone else that Type A?) so I spent most of this past weekend, cleaning our house. However, with a vacation, I don't have to try to cram all that cleaning into a couple of hours, while the boys nap. Life slows down.
And I give myself permission to slow down, too.
Instead, we will go to the mall in the mornings to walk. We visited Santa today. I will shop. And shop. And shop. I even threw in a yoga session today. Impressive, I know.
Maybe, just maybe, I'll start the 30 day shred (anyone taking bets?)
I think about finishing those jobs.
I'm not ready to tackle them just yet.
Oh, you want to see the picture with Santa?
I think I'll spend some time thinking how cute my kid is instead of doing the dishes tonight.
