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!

Okay, Christmas was this past weekend. Today is Wednesday and my wrapping paper is still out lol!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE decorating for the holidays! Un-decorating….Not so much.

It is after holidays and birthdays that my wrapping stash gets revamped. I take all of the bags and non torn tissue paper we received and pack them away in my way cool Tupperware tote (LOVE IT!) so that I can reuse them and save money next time. Wrapping is expensive! I would rather save that money for something else or even use that money to put towards the actual gift itself than spend it on something that will most likely get thrown away anyway.

Trouble is, like I said before, its Wednesday and the tote is out but so is ALL of the wrapping paper, bows, ribbon, tags, tissue, and bags….lol. I guess I better stop eating the cookies, and playing with the kids and their new toys and actually put this stuff away as I originally intended.

Don’t even get me started on un-decorating the tree! This year though, since we went mainly home-made, the process will be much quicker AND I can recruit my three-year old to help me without the fear of him breaking a store-bought ornament.

It’s my goal to have everything down and packed away by the end of this weekend so I can start the New Year fresh and clean. I’ll let you know how that goes ;^D
