The wrapping paper and bows are stuffed into garbage bags, the boxes are flattened for re-use next year, and we're sluggish from overeating and indulging ourselves once again. It's the day after Christmas and we are content and happy in our crazy lives. No time to sit back and relax - we have to get on the road!
Today we're heading to Pennsylvania to see my daughter and her family. They alternate years here and at home for Christmas so as long as we're able to we'll be doing the same. This year they're home so we're heading south to see them. The car will be piled high with gifts and we'll get on the road early so we can enjoy the day with them there. I hate being in the car for long so I'm always anxious to get where we're going!
There is nothing like being around children at Christmas. If I didn't have so many grandchildren I think I'd have to adopt some. But no need - I'm leaving some behind to return to in East Hampton next week and driving west to visit with the others. It's going to be a fun day!
