This post won’t have the usual magic. I’m too tired. How do I sum up the exhaustion, yet splendor, of the holiday weekend?
The first challenge was figuring out where to seat 24 people for Thanksgiving. I didn’t want to stick little boys at a table in the kitchen. You never know what kind of trouble that can lead to. So we turned our dining room into a four star restaurant.
Four stars because the food was delicious, but the company was even better!
Adults and kids mixed at each table.
We ate and laughed, talked and played games. Doesn’t get much better than that.
After everyone left I went straight to bed because the girls and I were planning to get up at 3AM on Friday, drive to the big city and shop til we dropped.
Here’s what I learned from that experience:
1. I am too old for this stuff.
2. I run out of energy about 3 hours before my girls do. They were dragging me around by 9 and by 11 I was begging them to push me in the stroller.
3. It was worth it. We had such a great time and we found some A-MAZING deals.
Then the very next day, as if the weekend hadn’t already been full enough, was Faith’s birthday. It was a day of celebrating and dining out and playing games.
By Sunday I was behind on filling shop orders, so we worked our fingers to the bone making burlap stockings and various other adorable items. It was all too much for one weekend. Every time I tried to write a blog post I would fall asleep. If I stood still for more than 5 minutes I would feel myself nodding off.
Even still…..I can’t seem to wake up long enough to pull a sentence together. Maybe next Black Friday we’ll get up at 5 instead. Mommy needs her beauty rest.
I hope you all had a mah-velous weekend.
