my boys and i just got up. actually, tyler is still asleep, and it is 11:30. yikes! maybe it's the post holiday exhaustion or something. i got sick on christmas night, and had a fever all day yesterday, so i slept a lot of the day too! it's going to be hard when we go back to school next week. we had a nice christmas, it was fun seeing all of the family. i feel so lucky that we have so many family members still around. coach's parents are both in heaven, and he is pretty much estranged from all but two of his 7 brothers and sisters, so it gets a little lonely for him. he does enjoy my family, though, so that helps. we've all been cooped up together in the house for the past week, pretty much, so we were all getting a little crabby! he badly sprained his ankle two days before christmas, so he has been laid up ever since. not fun! this time of year, i always thank god when we all survive the togetherness-haha! he is back to work today, and i'm sure he is happy. he gets bored, whereas i could relax and read all day long. there was a marathon of pitbulls and parolees a couple days ago, and i was totally happy to just veg and watch it. i think, because i get so little downtime, i have learned to appreciate it! i hope you and yours had a wonderful, relaxing holiday!
