Relief relief relief relief that Christmas has come and gone.
Sadness that I feel this way, that the holidays are so much work and so little joy for me now. There are lovely moments, of course. A few sprinkled through every day. Maybe that's all I can hope for. But none of those long stretches of ahhh I used to love about Christmas.
Kitty Cat and Fruit Bat were wonderful, though. Taking turns and sharing and proving themselves to be mostly good company. (All this despite Fruit Bat waking for the day around 2 am).
And I got this bitchin' flash for my camera. One that'll make good nighttime pictures possible. I'm excited about it and I'm realizing how little I know about this photography stuff.
Now I'm ready to get back to normal life. To our school day frenzy. To my regularly scheduled writing sessions. To waking to the alarm and barely seeing J. To scrambling to make dinner every night and doing my own laundry and kitchen clean up. Oh wait.
Maybe I'll just do my best to enjoy this upcoming week...
