Christmas – Break?

  
We are staying home for Christmas and I have these sweet dreams of what it will be like, having us all together in our “cabin.”

Let’s just say the dreams in my head are different than my reality.

Our timing is off. Our desires are different. Our levels of cooperation aren’t in sync. This is our happily ever after?

We made a nice dinner for just the 5 of us. I was so happy that we weren’t in an airport or freezing in the snow or stuck in the car for a long journey. I felt thankful and was looking forward to watching a movie together or playing a game or going out to see the Christmas lights.

That was until our boys started arguing and the little one wouldn’t stop making noise. The disagreements continued and the discussions ended in frustration and the boys were dismissed to their rooms for the night. No movies. No games. No light shows.

I guess I got a break from them, but this wasn’t the Christmas break I dreamed about. I am enjoying the quiet though. There’s always a chance for a do-over tomorrow. I just wish they could learn before they cross over my patience threshold.

I hope they learn before the break is over because I really want us to all just get along and hang out and live it up, together. 

Wishing you peace.
