I think the last thing to go back into storage was the "Cookies for Santa" plate.
Tomorrow the kids go back to school, and I go back to work. Holidays are over, and reality returns. I'm not sure I'm ready. In fact, I have that unsettled, nervous feeling in my stomach - the one I used to get on Sunday nights when I knew I had a test Monday morning.
I don't have any exams tomorrow. I guess handling the morning routine will be a test in itself - seeing if I can get two sleepy kids out the door before the school bells ring.
And then there's the long-term - the goals I've set for myself. Writing more. Marketing my brand (and figuring out what it is!). Learning to Web design. Getting healthy. Spending more time with the family. Thinking too much about it now is overwhelming. So deep breaths, right? And one step at a time.
