So I'm ready for my annual black Friday shopping trip with my bestie. We have had a sick baby for the last 4 days and she is pregnant so we forego the 4:30 am usual start time for a much more manageable 6am. Only problem. I've been up since about 1:30 am.
Mason slept so much better last night, so it would only go without saying that I should have too, right?!
My brain woke up about midnight thinking it was 5am. Hubby quickly shared it was only midnight so off to sleep I went again...I woke up again. Surely it is 5am NOW. Nope only 1:30 am.tried and tried to go back to sleep. There are so many nights I wish the clock would just freeze so I could enjoy more sleep. Today was that night that it felt as time was standing still and I would look over at the clock and see 2:12, 2:42, 3:10. Ok if I'm still up by 4am I'll get up. As I laid there my mind processed how great Thanksgiving was minus the sick kiddo. How much fun the train will be tonight (we are headed with a whole lot of family to a train ride with Santa ); How much work I have to do at work; I wonder how so and so's trip is going; why am I stressed it's only 3am, I should pray about that, etc, etc, etc. 4:01 came and I got up and took a fabulous warm shower, once the furnace woke up.
So here I am now...all ready to go. An hour and a half early. :0/
So I got to thinking of all the reasons I love this time of year. Family, traditions, cookies, presents, love. I get to feel the love this time of year that I know is always there it is just on display now.
Let the Christmas Prep begin!
