Am I exhausted. Three late nights in a row coupled with early mornings, multiplied by Christmas frenzy, heaped with teenage angst?
The perfect making of a Merry Christmas Meltdown. Which is what happened tonight.
Things have been...stressful here, of late. Not bad, not good, just stressful. Then, I was sticking labels on our Christmas cards and felt sucker punched when I saw two labels that were missing names.
To address our cards to just "Grandma" and to just "K.", felt so wrong to me. So...heartless. But it's reality. It's reality that leaves me with a heavy heart and misty eyes.
On a positive note...I'm almost done wrapping presents! I thought I WAS done, but then I discovered another present and remembered that there is another in the van. Ooops. But, THE END IS IN SIGHT!
And now...as I've been burning the candle at both ends, my flames are about to meet. And snuff each other out. I need sleep. Long, deep, uninterrupted, blissful sleep.
