Christmas and all it’s surrounding celebrations

are behind us. While we didn’t do anything really elaborate, we were busy. There was a stretch of several days that I didn’t get any where near enough sleep to suit me. From making tamales with the family until after 2am, then getting up the next morning to open gifts. I cooked for only 9 this year, but it went well. The day after Christmas we had a wedding and stayed out till nearly midnight only to get up before 5 to go spend time with my mom, sister and her kids.

It was a blast and totally worth it but it left me exhausted. I’ve thought about my story but haven’t had time to open it up or do any work in days. The old man has to work on New Years, so our celebrations will be laid back probably a movie marathon. (I’m thinking maybe the Jurassic Park movies, including Jurassic World!)

How was your Christmas? And what are you planning for New Year Eve?
