Merry Christmas Eve!

I wanted to write a poem, a fun one, about Christmas eve at our house. But I can barely string words together. Once again I am sick. The past few nights have been awful, my throat hurts so much.But my being sick doesn't stop Christmas from coming. I feel a bit like the Grinch, wishing it wasn't Christmas. I don't feel stressed about tonight, because I am still trying to let go. I know that I can not be perfect, there will be things I forget. I thought I had made a list of things I try to do every year, but I never found my list. The one thing we haven't done this year is going to the Mesa LDS Temple to see the lights. It makes me sad, but I doubt it'll happen tonight either. We haven't even driven around to look at lights. I may send Daddy out with the girls tonight, unless I am feeling better, then maybe I'll go along. There are a few things left to finish up, gifts left to wrap, possible treasure hunts to make. Honestly I really want to lay on the couch, and watch craptacular television and sleep away this nasty headache and sore throat. Instead I have cleaned my room, and made another batch of caramels this morning. I used the wrong kind of paper to wrap them and they stuck to it, so I had to throw out the first batch. This batch tastes just as good, and hopefully will not stick to the plastic wrap.

sorry you're sick! That sucks! You're doing great with what you got...the kids won't know that things weren't 100% to your liking. :) Enjoy the weekend!
