I didn't enjoy working full time up until Christmas, getting called in on Christmas Eve day for 4 hours, getting called in on Christmas Day just as we were starting to open presents, getting called in on the day after Christmas for 7 hours and missing the hugs goodbye as everyone left and getting called in twice today. This will teach me to pick up so much call over the holidays.
Another lesson I learned is to k.i.s.s. next holiday season. Keep It Simple (where does the other s go? I plan to not cook as much, play more, shop sooner and enjoy it more. It is unbelievable how much food we wasted just because I think I need to cook and cook and cook. I also learned that we need to get grandkids to bed earlier so the adults can play together more. I actually am looking forward to trying out my new plans next holiday season. Right now I just want a relaxing Sunday tomorrow (hopefully I won't get called in) and a fun week in Utah (no cooking by me-yeah!) for Alex's wedding. I can't wait to get a nap tomorrow!
