It has been a lazy couple of days around the Thomas home this week. And by lazy, I mean sleeping in, cuz yesterday, after I got up, we were gone running errands all day.
But this morning I didn't wake up until almost nine. I feel like a new person. (a very tired new person)
All of the family has come and gone. It was a very busy Christmas. I wanted everyone to come here and see the new place, but it was exhausting.
With all the extended family that I can't have here at the same time, it was spread out over a week. Trying to keep this place visitor-ready is hard!
Mom came over on Tuesday, and we had an awkward couple of hours with her and my sister's families.
Wednesday I spent the day baking and enjoying some real Christmas fun with sister at her place. (she gives the bestest presents!)
Christmas Day the former two-doors-down neighbors dropped in to see what we've done to the place, and later, Step-Dad number two and his wife came over. We had a lovely time laughing and playing a new game with the kids.
Friday I went shopping with big sister while hubby and the kids readied the house for Dad to come visit for the weekend. (thanks guys!) The rest of the weekend was a blur.
By the time he left, I was so tired I wanted to cry, but we had one more visit for which to prepare. Shawn's aunt and uncle, who didn't even know we had moved, (bad form, Shawn!) came over for a couple of hours.
And now I'm waiting for the electrician to come over and hook up my hot tub so I can relax for a couple of days before we get back to school.
Happy New Year!
