First of all Merry Christmas! We spent the day withuot rushing and taking our time this morning getting around to opening gifts. I even cooked our dinner last night instead of today and it was so nice to not have it be all over the place this year. Of course having Jason home was enough of a gift and to make the holidays even more special even if it was just the two of us. :)
I truly have been meaning to update. I am working on putting together lesson plans for after Christmas break with my kids and Jason and I have been pretty busy. Mentally things have been exhausting around here and we really haven't had much of a break with him pulling a few 24's by the week and everyone clearing post and leaving. Not to mention I have been squealing inside at the idea of taking a little vacation from our home for my mental sanity and for some new scenery.
So why not, right?! Exactly. Jason is on leave and we are getting up early in the morning and making the 6+ hour drive down to Anchorage to spend a few days. We really haven't made any big plans other than spending time together without work, without technology, without our loud neighbors and away from this place. :) Emmie is already shaking over the fact that things are being packed and she might not be going but little does she know that mama booked a pet friendly hotel so they could go too! Hopefully it will be scenic, relaxing and just what we need.
I shall return before the new year!
