Christmas is over - relief and disappointment

Wow, I didn't realize how long it had been since I posted. It's been a casual, relaxing week and there's one more to go before school resumes and so do the hectic schedules of school, homework and all that goes with it. There have been four days in the past week that I haven't left the house and it has been nice - especially as I've been watching the snow out the window. However, there's always that bit of a letdown after Christmas. After all the time spent decorating, shopping and preparing, it's over in a few hours. I'm always bothered, too, by how the radio stations drop all the peppy holiday tunes on December 25th. I always want to hear them a little bit more. I hope everyone has had a great holiday and wish you good health and happiness in the new year.
