Lazy Monday

I am ashamed to say that I didn’t do anything productive today.  Well, I take that back.  I did do some laundry.  But, other than that, it was a lazy Monday.  My husband and I have been off from work this week.  My husband has been spending most of his time at the beach, surfing.  He announced to me today he just needed to not be working so he could get all his projects done.  I second that emotion.  However, the reality is that we have 3 children.  Two are in various stages of orthodontia.  One is hopefully college-bound.  We need to work or win the lottery.

In the meantime, my husband and I are enjoying our time off from the rigors of work.  We are appreciating every moment until we have to get back to our regular grind.  Tomorrow, we will be celebrating the New Year with friends.  Each year we do a progressive dinner.  This year we are in charge of appetizers.  Easy enough.  My husband went to Costco today for various finger foods.  I think we are ready for tomorrow.

On New Year’s Day, we will go to my mother’s house to celebrate the New Year and Christmas.  She was gone for Christmas taking care of my aunt.   We will get together with my sister and brother and their families.  I am grateful that I get to spend time with my family this vacation.  Life is definitely good.  🙂
