I am content the Christmas season is finally over and we are back in ordinary time. (Never mind the pink and red hearts festooning the stores; I’m simply pretending they don’t exist. Take that marketing gurus: I’m ignoring your pressure to buy stuff!)
We had a terrific family break. Our house stretched its walls happily with the fullness and music the boys bring along. My husband and I were fielding arguments, cooking, cleaning, fixing cars and playing (multiple) games with a raucous houseful.
