Do you miss my longer, wordy, snarkier posts? Too bad. Mostly pictures today—but maybe by the end you’ll see why I don’t have time to write more than this lousy explanation for why I haven’t been writing many blog posts.
I hosted our annual gingerbread houses decorating day (which involved baking and building ten houses ahead of time):
…and helped the boys make jeweled serving spoons/forks for some of the teachers:
…and helped them make these stick Christmas trees for the other teachers:
…and helped them paint three of these babies for Christmas presents:
…and helped Vincenzo make five sets of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle ornaments for his student market:
…and helped the boys make two of these for Christmas presents:
…and finished round one of holiday baking and delivering:
…and somehow also I have also gotten the boys to two martial arts lessons a week, two basketball practices, three speech therapy appointments, one family swimming lesson, and weekly visits to Great Grandpa and Great Aunt Helen.
And just to be mean:
I feel crazy. I feel invincible! I also feel like I must be incredibly irritating to a lot of people right now.
But most of all I am irritating to myself. I am so irritated! Can Christmas just be over so I can go back to making fun of myself? I like me so much better that way.
