Back to normal?

Not sure if there is such a thing as 'normal', but we are as close to it as I think we are going to get. Christmas was wonderful! We decide to do a small Christmas every year, but somehow it always ends up bigger than we planned. That's ok, because over the years we have gotten better at celebrating the true meaning of the holiday. My brother, sil, and nephew made it home from Hawaii safely (PTL!). It's always nice to see them! I took down the decorations and got them all boxed up and ready to go back in the attic. I love to put them up, but once Christmas Day is over I'm done with them. People say you should leave them up until after New Year's Day - but to me that's starting a brand new year with a lot of clutter. New Year's Eve we went to Jim's parents for dinner and games. Because my children get a little crazy without schedules, I decided we were going to go back to school today - Ryan caught a bug and was throwing up all evening! Scratch those plans. Now I need to jump off here and get lunch going so I can get their dinner ready (Jim worked all night plowing the snow, so I want to get as much done as possible to make it easier for him) and I'm back to work today! I was lucky enough to get a 4 day weekend for New Year's! Hope your holiday was great!
