A vacation from vacation

I am really ready for Christmas break to be over. We've celebrated Christmas. We've wrapped, opened, assembled, played with, broken and lost toys. We have watched Christmas movies. We baked, decorated and ate Christmas cookies. We had the flu and survived. We have rung in the new year. We've had family time. Lots of it. Now I am ready for life to go back to normal. The kids need to go back to school and get out of the house. We need our normal routine and schedule. We need a reason to get out of our pajamas before dinner time.

The holidays were wonderful. Paul was home. He cooked. We ate. We played together. Paul got chores done around the house. Sara actually cleaned her room. But now we have the holiday hangover. Christmas and New Years came and went. Now we are staring at piles of snow and getting cabin fever. Paul is back at work and we are at home trying to entertain each other for hours on end. Sara is already asking when school starts again. I give it 5 days before she is asking when she has spring break.
