I'm tired. 

There I said it.  Sometimes I am so full of boundless energy, and I can go, go, go, go, go for weeks on end...and then I hit the wall.  I think this past weekend did me in.  The past two weeks have been insane around here for various reasons...taekwondo testing, swimming lessons, Noah being sick, Christmas shopping/baking/wrapping, and to top it off, we had two family Christmases this weekend, out of town...of course.  The weekend was gone before I could blink my eyes...and while it was great to see everyone, last night went much longer than I expected and we still had an hour and a half drive home afterward.  AND it was a school night.  AND my kids had been up until at least 10:00 both nights...couldn't be helped.  So you can just imagine what bedtime was like last night, can't you?  Lots of whining, crying, over-tiredness, and lots of "I don't WANT to go to school tomorrow!!!"

That being said, once they were out...they were OUT.  Same goes for me...but I still feel like I didn't get enough sleep.  I spent the majority of my day today cleaning and catching up on laundry so that tomorrow and Wednesday the kids and I can finish up some holiday baking and wrapping.  I'm making my lists of things that need done and my schedule for the food on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day (as well as appetizers and snacks in between...)!  I have a plan, and that is the important thing, right? 

How is your holiday prep shaping up?  What do you do to keep in the Spirit of Christmas while dealing with the stress of getting it all done?  I keep my tree lit as much as possible, try to do something 'Christmas-y" every day, and play endless Christmas music.  My favorite is Harry Connick Jr.'s Harry for the Holidays, but I really like my Michael Buble Christmas cd as well. 

I'm going to try to get some pics tonight of the cool little teacher gifts I picked up this year, so I can post tomorrow.  I think you'll love them...I sure do!

Only 5 more sleeps 'til Christmas!!!!  :)

BUT, for those who have arrived at Los Angles Airport, then how you'll roam by way of the city without having a correct car rental at LAX is the small matter of concern. luxury car rental los angeles

So go for synthetic materials for cheaper costs. Also, pieces that are machine woven will cost you a great deal less than those that are hand woven. So for less expensive options it is best to get machine woven pieces.Cheap Rugs
