But life seems quiet even with all the activity and running around. We've got the tree up, the apartment decorated and we're just enjoying the season. The one thing I haven't done which I used to do in Boston is the holiday baking. Last year at this time we were 3 months into the move and I was too stressed out to even think about it; we got cards and gifts out late, and barely got the tree up at all, so doing the holiday spread was just a bridge too far. Now I feel more settled here and better able to take on the holiday merriment but I still don't think there are any home-baked cookies in my Christmas this year. Which is kind of sad, because I miss doing that, but maybe by next year I'll be ready again.
In the meantime I hope everyone who celebrates it has a wonderful Christmas and New Year's celebration. And everyone at least have a great week!
