Can you believe it’s another new year?
I mean, it doesn’t seem like it was that long ago when we woke up in the year 2000 wondering if all the computers in the world were still going to work. 😬 Y2K!!
Now, seemingly all of a sudden, it’s 2018! Whoa!
Twas the day after Christmas
when all the through the house
Everyone was still stuffed from dinner,
even the mouse.
Wrapping paper was strewn
just about everywhere.
It was obvious that St. Nicholas
had just been there.
The Christmas season seems to come earlier and earlier each year, doesn’t it?
I mean, it’s not even Thanksgiving and stores are dressed in red and green. Trees with giant silver and gold balls line city streets.
Car companies have been encouraging us to make it a “December to remember” since the end of October.
Candy canes have replaced candy corn at the grocery store.
Where I live, today was the first day of school.
Our youngest started kindergarten…he hopped on that big, yellow school bus for the first time in his life like a champ! My daughter was right behind him…she was on to fourth grade.
Overall, it’s a big transition for us. There are no longer any non-school agers living in our home. No more “babies.”
Are you a morning person?
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve grown to appreciate mornings more and more. Dare I say, I even like them now.
That hasn’t always been the case, though. For most of my life I’ve wished days would start at noon.
