The last day

How can it be?? My glorious 5-day holiday is almost over! I am going back to work tomorrow. How can a normal 5- day workweek take forever but 5 days off flies by at a dizzying speed?

My girls and I spent time doing service hours this weekend. Yesterday we chose what crafts the scout troops would do for nursing home door decorations (thank you, pinterest) and shopped for supplies. Today the scouts mass-produced the decorations like bosses.

We made 40 trees and 32 lanterns. We will go to the nursing home next weekend to decorate and sing Christmas carols. We are going to make that place so festive!

We also had the girls address holiday cards for the military. We have over 100 cards for the Heroes Wear Fatigues program and Walter Reed hospital.

What a wonderful way to spend the end of my holiday. I feel refreshed and recharged. And tonight the Walking Dead midseason finale will be the perfect ending before reality rears it’s ugly head tomorrow morning at 6am.
