Phew!



Usually I don't feel my age.  But I can honestly say that watching three children, well fueled with sweets, excited by a variety of new toys and surrounded by rooms full of admiring adults, is very tiring.  The kids are charming, adorable and all that ... but very loud, energetic and hyped on Christmas, that is to say from the morning/breakfast gathering when the gifts were opened,  until evening when dinner was served. They had a nap in the afternoon that renewed their energy while adults simply wilted -- or this one did.

I'm glad Christmas is over. I'm especially glad that my favorite radio station WFCC the classical station will no stop playing all those Christmas medlies and go back to their somewhat excessively baroque music.  I'm glad the crowds at the various stores will thin out.  And glad it will be another year before this madness hits again. Christmas comes but once a year -- how fortunate!

I remember those days having five children on Christmas morn and miss that every Christmas (for about 15 mins). Still, envy you June, that get-to gether.

Five children boggles my mind. WE used to spend part of Christmas events with neighbors who had five children ... phew, they were great children but I was glad they weren't mine.
