“Ugh, here we go, ” I uttered to my husband this morning at 5 am as he was headed into the shower and I was right behind him, ticking off a mental to do list for the month. Though I love this time of year, thanks mainly to Christmas carols and white lights, I’ve also got to accept that some Decembers are more December than others. Do you know what I mean?
We got one of those Decembers coming up. Family events colliding with soccer playoffs, varsity sports season, studying for exams and visiting relatives. The high-stakes game of junior year in high school grades combined with the lower stakes reality of my 8th grader applying to high school and juggling 92 school projects simultaneously. My self-imposed work deadlines battling with the pull to celebrate the holidays.
We’ll get through. It will be grand. But today was a good day to take a deep breath and exhale, “December, here we come.”
Embracing my Chaos, Lian
