5 things I'm letting go of this season
I'm not doing an advent-anything. My kids just don't seem to get the idea of waiting, or taking turns, or sharing, and I hate the idea of individual advents. Maybe next year we can try again.
I often cook lots of veggies on the day, but they rarely get eaten. I'm undecided about whether we will completely skip this one, because asparagus and bacon sounds pretty awesome.
Beautifully wrapped gifts are not going to happen until all the kids are older and can admire them for the treasure they are.
Cut-out cookies of any sort. I hate the rolling and cutting process, and would probably hate the decorating process, too. If it can't be rolled into balls, or sliced from a log, I'm not doing it.
Handmade santa sacks. This isn't the year to decide it must be done. Maybe next year.
What are you letting go of this holiday season?
