Good Tidings

Happy holidays, you guys. I hope you’re having a good time no matter what you’re all doing today. I’ve been up for about 4 hours now, having been woken up by an excited Little J at 7 a.m. on the dot to come watch them open presents. He even climbed in my bed and snuggled for a few minutes, it was so sweet.

All day yesterday was spent indoors, due to the bad weather. This meant the boys were bouncing off the walls most of the day. We watched a few holiday movies, played a couple of games, finished decorating the cookies. By 10, they were ready to go to bed, so Santa could come. My head had been hurting all day long, and by the time I got them tucked in, it was a full-blown migraine.

I was holding off on taking any medicine, because I wasn’t sure if I would be driving across town to attend midnight mass. E never called, so I finally took something, turned off the lights and had a quick chat with Honey and then with Nova. I wasn’t tired at all, despite not having much sleep all week.

I curled up in a ball, pressed a pillow to my throbbing temple, and prayed for sleep. My mind was racing, all the things that I want to say, that I need to say, all coming through so clearly. Why is it that things come so clearly when all you want to do is go blank? Finally drifted off at some point, because I was snoozing good with Little J came bouncing in.

We got Big J up, I grabbed my camera, and “OOOH what’s in our stockings? Is this your present or my present? Whose name is on that?!” They got Rock Band from Santa, lots of University of Texas gear from Douche’s family, a few games they had asked for, some nerf guns, and of course, new toothbrushes! I was lucky enough to get some really nice things this year. I think the best thing I got was a James Avery necklace from my dad.

Once all the wrapping paper was picked up and breakfast had been eaten, I came down to the basement to set up the Rock Band game. It didn’t take long, and we were ready to rock! Unfortunately, for some reason, the game won’t read in the Wii. Not sure what the problem is, but I am completely frustrated! I guess I’ll have to fiddle with it after dinner.

E and her husband are coming to eat with us, which was a nice surprise. I’ll have to go up and start cooking soon. Hopefully the boys won’t kill each other today, they’ve already been separated once. I see naps in our future, or at least some “quiet time” in their rooms. I know Mommy sure could use a nap.

Have a great day, guys. Love to you!

    I’ve napped all day, but if teleporting is allowed I’ll teleport over to join the “napping” 😉

    I SO didn’t get a nap today 😦 and really wished I could teleport everyone for a big ole drinkin’ bash. That would have been freakin’ awesome.
