I’m sitting at my desk at work, feeling a little bummed out that the holidays are over.
I’m also feeling overwhelmed – by work, unread blogs (I must read them all!), New Year’s Eve planning, 2013 resolution planning…. There is a lot to get done!
But, despite the stress of the post-Christmas, pre-New Year’s activities, I’ve got a huge smile on my face. Because I had the best Christmas (and birthday!) that I’ve ever had!
It was so nice to have Zach come with me to visit my family, but I’m also grateful that he and his family will soon be my family too!
In a testament to how great my “new” family is, my Sister-in-law, Courtney (on the left in that photo) took care of our kitties while we were in Pittsburgh, and she surprised us with this photo on Christmas morning:
Isn’t that awesome!? She bought them a cat tree and surprised them with it on Christmas morning. It made me feel so happy and loved that she made sure my cats were having a good time while I was away.
Of course, not all the cats were impressed:
Gross, I know, but also hilarious. Tuscany is a little hard to please.
All in all, I had a fabulous week. There is nothing in life better than having a loving family, and this year I’m so very grateful to be gaining a whole extra family to call my own.
Question of the day:
How was your Christmas!?
