There are a lot of things I want to write about.
I want to write…
…about the hour-long wait at Macy’s for the Nutcracker display last Saturday after my wife and I saw the Hollidazzle Parade.
…about how great my birthday was last week (my wife got me money for Cubs tickets at Wrigley…how great is that!?!).
…about how we had 10 family members stay overnight with us in our two-bedroom apartment two nights ago and how much I love it when my family comes to visit and how much I just love my family in general.
…about how excited I am that my brother and future sister-in-law are planning to come with Jamie and me to the Pacific Coast next year.
…about how difficult it is to deal with some small group-related things and how my introvert cries out and wants to take a break from being a small group leader, though I love the people there and know that’s not the right decision.
…the Christmas letter that would have been fun to send to family and friends to thank them for the blessing they’ve been to us and to publicly thank God for blessing us so much over the last year.
…about how close I’ve grown to my in-laws over the last year and how grateful I am that they’ve welcomed me into their family the way they have.
…a love letter or a song to my wife that would tell her how special she is to me and would make her cry. (Okay, so I probably wouldn’t post that…)
…about how fed up I am with the circus that the presidential primary election has become.
…an email response that would answer the questions I need to answer in the 78 emails in my inbox at work.
But, I don’t have time to do all of that. I have the desire, but I don’t have the time.
So, in lieu of posts about those things, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
I’ll see you all next week.
