I got out my Christmas stuff the weekend after Thanksgiving, and where I have historically been so excited to decorate and begin celebrating advent, I just felt kind of pooped this year. It took a few days. Maybe it’s that the kids are all teenagerish now, and hanging out in their room, or at various functions, and I felt kind of lonely hanging the ornaments one by one, all by myself.
At one point I hollered to my daughter, “Hey! Do you like having a Christmas tree?”
“Well then come help me decorate it!”
So she did. Tree sparkling. Color wheel rollin’.
They make me happy. They remind me of something, but I don’t know what–something from my childhood. But I didn’t know any choir children, and I wasn’t a choir child. Our church didn’t even have a choir.
Things I’ve been doing: physics, catapults, grading tests and lab reports
Getting CPR/first aid/AED certified.
And unfortunately eating those
And so doing more of this
