Last night at around 9 p.m., my house was so peaceful. Everyone was in bed at this time except for me and although my wife was waiting for me to snuggle and look at phones, I wanted to take some time to sit in the stillness near the Christmas tree and write in my journal. Adam joined me. 🙂
My to-do list over the next few days feels a bit overwhelming, between fun stuff (the Trans-Siberian Orchestra tonight at the Times Union Center, rollerskating, family Christmas party) and tasks (holiday baking, taking Adam to PetCo to use their self-service dog bathing facilities, grocery shopping and meal planning), so I felt I really needed this moment. A bit of calm before the storm.
