taking its toll

Friday, November 24, 2017

This week is taking it's toll. I am aching all over and I have sore muscles where I didn't have sore muscles in along time. ... and sadly it's not from exercise. As much as I love my grand-daughter, she is so active that it just drains me. If I was still watching her full time I don't think I could do it anymore. Thank God for schools and afterschool care programs. When It comes time for the Christmas break I will have to use all my will power and not volunteer.
She is really the most beautiful and energetic child, and my only grand-child, so let's not be fooled here. Come Christmas I probably forget all about my body aches and be the first in line to take her.

We had a good day and everyone was happy to see each other again and share in food and lots of conversation and more food. I have left over turkey, and sweet potatoes, broccoli and gravy, some beans and lots of pie.... so I am set food wise for the rest of the month. lol, ...well, maybe not that long. But while some people get tired of turkey after turkey day I can't get enough of it. So much you can do with it and we are looking forward to it all.

So now I have to figure out what I am going to do next. I am a bit on loose ends... the house is clean, Christmas shopping is done, no started quilt project is lurking around... maybe I knit a bit and see where it takes me. My daughter wants a sweater, I just haven't had the kind of inspiration I needed to start it. Now might be a good time to go through some books and get some ideas. Maybe I go to the mall and do some window shopping... that always sparks ideas for me. Let's see what everyone else is up to.

    I'm right there with you - have an aching back and feet are sore, but by Christmas I'll only remember how much fun I had with the grandson!
