I am really enjoying reading everybody’s year-end wrap ups, and I am totally going to write one of my own, because in spite of some difficulties, I’ve had a pretty epic year. But I can’t write it yet! I am super close to hitting a really cool mileage milestone and I don’t want to wrap up my year until I get there.
Eleven more days!
In the meantime, let’s talk about Christmas. I am sort of ready-ish. Most of the gifts have been bought and wrapped, though I still have some baking to do and I’m sure there will be a last minute panic of something I’ve forgotten. It happens every year. Christmas prep is usually a little stressful around here, but I do really enjoy Christmas Day, and here’s why:
Years ago, when we started this tradition, UltraIronHubs and I had to run a little slower to make sure that the boys could keep up. Then Big Boy got faster than me, so it was three of us holding back for Little Boy. Then Little Boy got faster, and it was the three of them running slow for me. Now? This year? Both boys are faster than both parents!
My how the times have changed.
