Having a to-do list a mile long and having kids makes no difference when it comes to being sick. We still get tired with aches and pains and have to get things done. That was me for the past few days.

I showed a house on Tuesday, that upon opening the door, smacked us in the face with the unmistakable odor of mold and mildew. Two days later, I go to the doctor to find out I have an upper respiratory infection. Fun!

20 gallons of hot tea with honey and lemon, 4 boxes of kleenex, 5 bowls of oatmeal, and 1 VERY large bottle of saline LATER I feel MUCH better!

During those days of sniffles and coughs, I also had to chase around a toddler and a 9 month old, show houses to clients, cook dinner, clean the house, sort through old clothes, put the christmas decorations away, and on and on and on and on…..

I’m happy to announce, that I got EVERYTHING done beautifully (including putting a house under contract)  EXCEPT putting all the Christmas stuff away. Ugh! That was my one BIG goal for the week BUT to my credit, that was before I got sick and had all the other stuff added to my list.

I did have the choice at one point to continue and get it all done or spend some quality time with my kiddos and, I need not tell you, I chose my kids  🙂  So with that being said, I do not regret not  getting to take down the ornaments and put the tree away this weekend.

What is the point of having a life if you don’t take the time to enjoy it! Besides, we still have Three Kings Day this coming week, so why rush. Happy New Year everyone!

Holy Cow! It seems like just yesterday it was October! The Holidays were a whirlwind this year. I enjoyed them but would have enjoyed them that much more if they were about 5000 MPH slower.

So Halloween was a hit with our Charlie Brown costumes. Anderson, my oldest, loved hammering his Braeden, our youngest, with his Snoopy nose. It looked just like a Peanuts comic strip watching Snoopy hammer down Woodstock with his own nose. Classic!

Thanksgiving was a breeze! Thank you whoever came up with Brining the Turkey! We brined the turkey with a delicious dry brine for 8 hrs and then slathered it with a home made herb butter. The turkey came out of the oven beautifully and was to Die For! We made a delicious home made sourdough stuffing with apples, pears, and bacon oh man! My mouth is watering just thinking back…Thanksgiving in January anyone?

Christmas was CRAZY busy with working, doing crafts with the kids – who were off from school, baking, CLEANING, shopping, wrapping, and oh yea….being merry! We had a Charlie Brown Christmas this year with home made crafts decorating our house and tree. Construction paper snowflakes hanging from the ceiling were a BIG hit and paper link garland was a blast to make for the tree!

Looking back, I would so do it again but in slow mode haha!

Hope you all had a very Merry and Blessed Christmas!

Until next time, remember to keep your family close, keep work at work, and the oven on.
