I feel like I am constantly trying to balance the needs of my daughter who requires a lot of time outside of the house with my needs to spend a lot of time at home. I finished teaching classes last week and was looking forward to a relaxing week at home with Steve. However, the week has turned out to be a lot busier than I planned driving the kids to meet friends and running errands with them. (Not my errands, I had everything finished by Monday morning.) Today we are going to see a movie early in the day and then the rest of the day is what momma needs – a stay at home in your pjs day. I can’t wait. We are planning on listening to Christmas music while we bake cookies and then eating all of them today.
