Back to Normal-ish

This weekend was busy and tiring. I am one of those people that after a holiday are over I CAN’T WAIT to put the house back to rights again. All the decorations and furniture needs to go back to where it was pre-festivities.

Our ‘Yule’/’Christmas’ tree was the first to come down. We enjoy real trees but the needles! We kept that sucker watered and taken care of all month but the needles were relentless. The tree is now resting behind our garage drying out for our next year’s Yule log burning. I learned about this while attending our first Yule with the kindred. I’m super excited to be able to do this-saving the tree for next year. All the evergreen trimmings and lights were the next to go along with my Christmas village. It was such a breath of relieving fresh air to have the house back to normal again.

This morning my son (poor little guy) came into our room crying about his stomach hurting. You guessed it-he caught the stomach bug. Just when I thought my house was no longer ground zero for this nasty thing it decided to rear its ugly head. It survived my chemical warfare of Lysol and Clorox. My husband has today paid off while I had to come to work. I’m so thankful that he can stay home with our son. He’s even helping clean up our room and house so we don’t go into the next year with procrastinated chores. Tonight, I have some planning to do with writing, trying to nail my 365-day project (also boosts portfolio) and finish developing my simple comic character. I will be ringing in the next chapter of yearly time with a sick little guy, clean house, pizza and hopefully creativity.

Is your house back to normal? What New Year traditions are you gearing up for? Happy Monday Y’all!

    1. We have black-eyed peas, cornbread, and collard greens. But if I didn’t eat it I’m afraid my grandmother would whoop me from the beyond. I wouldn’t wish the stomach bug on my worst enemy…ok maybe my worst but not anyone else. Happy New Years hun! 🙂
