All I Want for Christmas

Our tree isn't up yet. My cards aren't mailed and my presents aren't wrapped.  But when I sit down this weekend to update my "to do" list, I find my mind wandering to two weeks from now--December 18, to be exact. The beginning of my two glorious weeks of Winter Break. It's not just that I won't be working--it's the brief reprieve for my whole family. No tests to study for, no homework to navigate, no after school activities to coordinate.

In addition to the visions of sugar plums dancing in my head (Kidding, why would I waste my holiday calories on a plum?) I have visions of our wonderful 16 days off and quality time spent with family and friends.

So here's my Christmas Wish List:
  1. read a good book
  2. game night
  3. visit with friends
  4. date with my handsome husband
  5. stretch my muscles at yoga
  6. watch a movie
  7. explore a museum
  8. ice skate
  9. prepare a new recipe
  10. score bargains shopping with the girls
  11. shop the farmer's market
  12. long winter hike with the dog
  13. enjoy a play
  14. try a new restaurant
  15. finish 2015 photo book
  16. celebrate Christmas with family
I confess, I'm not dreaming of a White Christmas. I'd rather save the storm for January when we can turn off the alarm, sleep in, and enjoy our snow day. This Christmas, I'm dreaming of time, and how I want to spend it with the people I love.
