~ A jillion boxes, a few meltdowns and peace...

I really haven't had much time to post nor much to share lately but wanted to say "hello" and that I miss everyone so much!  I was going to take pics of all the boxes, however, I cannot find the charger for my camera or the cord to link up with my computer. Of course, they are in a very safe place ~ a place that I felt confident in putting them at the time ~ but have no idea where that would be right now. :-)  The boxes do multiply at night, I'm convinced of that!  I know I'll get through this but it would be so nice to be able to do it the way I'd normally do and be done. My knees have been so bad that some days I can't do much at all. Went to a chiropractor last week and will have PT 2-3 x a week for a bit.  I've had a couple of meltdowns but they didn't last long. I do feel very peaceful here and am so grateful!  I have a beautiful view and the morning sun ~ love it!

I know your homes are beautifully decorated and lots of baking being done ~ hopefully, I will get by sometime this week to take a look!  I continue to remind myself of the reason for the season and that gets me through. Bottom line, all this "stuff" doesn't really matter...we just need to keep Christ in Christmas.

So good to see that you are back. I have missed you so much! I pray that your knees get better soon. It's not fun to live among boxes and not feel like taking care of them. I can relate. Merry Christmas to you, my friend!

Have a great week!

You will be back to normal before you know it because you have such a positive attitude.

Blessings!

You are in a safe place and thats what matters most. Take it slow and if those boxes keep multiplying at night, toss them! LOL Enjoy this month, it's half over my friends! Come say hi :D
