Holidays are in full swing over here ...

We have been very busy this holiday season right now!
Friday I hosted a party for my moms club here - it was so much fun. All the fretting and worrying that I did prior to the party - all for naught. Which is good!
I had some activites planned for the kids - we made it through about half of them - so I overplanned, which is better than underplanning. I got some good comments.
Tonight dh and I are headed to a big party! It should be a grand time I hope.
Then tomorrow we have to do things for a party I will be at Monday with the kids. Tuesday comes a holiday cookie exchange (so theoretically I need to so some baking before then). Party again next Saturday, party next Sunday, party the next day.
Wow. I'm tired just thinking about it ... but that is what the holiday season brings with it - it's a time to be together with others, and what better way to do that than to have a party. So there are a ton of them, and dh and I will go to about half of them.
I have a love hate relationship with the holidays because of all this busyness and traveling nad going places. It is nice to see people, it is nice to be invited places, but it wears me out to do soooo many things in such a little bit of time.
But soon the holidays will be over - come and gone in the flash of an eye. And I will miss it and be excited for the next holiday season and in a year from now, probably feel the same sense of too much to do, too many people to see, too worn out to think feelings .... or maybe we will hide away in our home and enjoy a nice christmas in our very own house doing it our very own way ;-)
