It's Christmas Eve, and we were so hoping we would be living in "the forest" house by now.. but it was not to be. The projected move-in date is now January 15th. In the end it doesn't really matter, and another Christmas in a rental house that does not feel like home is not a real problem. It could be worse, and as always at this time of year my thoughts turn to how fortunate we are for what we have, and who we have around us. So on that serious note, I am giving myself permission to relax amid the mess and the boxes so that I don't forget this Christmas completely. Oh, and eat some chocolate while listening to my favorite Christmas tunes. That always helps.
