Holiday Home Stretch

Sometimes it feels like December is its own special kind of marathon. This week we celebrated all 8 nights of Chanukah and my birthday, and went to 3 Christmas and 2 Chanukah parties, the nutcracker, and a bowling birthday party while also trying to nurse a sick (feverish, coughing) Clementine back to health and deliver holiday treats to our neighbors (and get our work done and final gifts purchased/sent).

At least one of us has a holiday party every single day this week, so it should be an interesting one! On the plus side, I think we will all be TOTALLY celebrated out by the time January rolls around – I predict no post-holiday letdown for us!
