Day 9, of Me, Then!

WOW! Mrs. Claus looks so thrilled to see Mr. Cash get his bell! This picture is from a few years ago and it reminds me of how Christmas is such an amazing time of year. Your calendar is suddenly very full (unless you are one of those people that your calendar is full anyway) with holiday gatherings, parties, cookie swaps and more. Though at times I want to scream and pull my hair out, remember one thing that I remind myself of when things get a little rough around the holidays.
"Julie, At Least You Have So Many Places To Be. Some people have nothing on their calendars".

With that said here is a glimpse of Day 9, Of Me Then!

  • Got the girls to school
  • Camped Out in the house all day long CLEANING so the cleaning lady could come! I am very blessed to have an amazing lady come every other week.
  • Made a Mexican Lasagna! (sorry I forgot to take pics, I am horrible at loading pics lately)
  • Shut it down around 4:00 so I could start getting ready for a Christmas party.
  • Had a FANTASTIC time at the party and got an AWESOME gift from my secret sister (which happened to be my best friend)!
  • Came home and fell out on the bed to go to sleep!

See, I told you my life can be pretty boring!

This is Me, Then!
