Yes, that magical week in between Christmas and New Year’s when time has no relevance, sanity is lost and those damn twist ties from the toy packages show up EVERYWHERE! I call this period, the Holiday Hangover and yes, I am feeling it.
There are still holiday leftovers in the fridge and I am pretty sure that my children are hording Christmas candy in their rooms, which they eat as soon as they wake up.
I have taken out 3 full bags of garbage and have barely made a dent in all of the wrapping paper, boxes and damn twist ties that are all over my house. I swear, they are multiplying!!!!
No matter how much I sleep, I feel like I can’t catch up on sleep. I feel like a hobbit, except instead of second breakfast, I am waiting for second nap time.
When nursing a holiday hangover, cooking falls by the wayside. There is a lot of pop-tarts, take out and delivery food consumed, because I am too tired to care.
My vacuum hasn’t been used in over a week because I haven’t made it down to floor-level yet.
I’ve had the same load of laundry in the dryer for a few days. I just keep restarting the dryer to keep them fresh. Every other day, I throw in a new dryer sheet too.
Every meal that I have “made” since Christmas has included a side of whipped cream. I mean, we have to use it up somehow, right?!
It’s been 5 days since Christmas and my children are already bored. I’m left thinking…
I have decided to self medicate with coffee and chocolate.
How is your holiday hangover?
