And yet, I find that way back then, before children, my house was a mess, and I rarely managed to finish a project. Why is that??
I find a certain poetry in the odd truth that as I lose my marbles, I seem to be finding them.
I have always wanted some kind of Advent thing. A tradition. A practice. A drumroll for Christmas. You know, a thing. And last night we finally set up our thing. We filled 75 envelopes with puzzle pieces and hung them from a super awesome string in our family room. I can't even begin to tell you how Pinteresty it is!! Each day each child will get four pieces and by Christmas, voila!! A puzzle.
So it's a moderately lame thing, but it's our thing and every family needs a thing.
