Five Minute Friday

Five Minute Friday – Free For All


It looks like Five Minute Friday may be on a little Winter vacation, but I like the idea of writing for five minutes, so I’m going to go ahead and do it.  Since there is no topic to use, I’m going to have a Free For All.  If you decide to do a Five Minute Friday today, please feel free to link up in the comments and I will try get over and comment!

Christmas is over but the remnants of it are all. over. my. house!  And my daughter is in rare form this morning, bouncing from one activity to another and another and another and then stating “There is nothing to do.  Nothing to do.”  It is a little entertaining but also a little disturbing.  I’m hoping if I can get things cleaned up and organized, she will calm down a bit and be able to focus on doing something for more than a few minutes at a time.

I am also a bit overwhelmed with everything and we don’t even get that much stuff/gifts really.  I can only imagine what it would be like if we had a bigger family and more gifts to deal with!  We do have a second Christmas to do at my in-laws on the 11th of January, but by then, hopefully she will have calmed down and adjusted to all the new stuff.  Then she will have adjust to all the new-new stuff.  Then she has a birthday in February and will have new-new-new stuff to adjust to.  It is a bit overwhelming!

So, that’s been my day after the day after Christmas so far…what about you?

  1. Hee! She’s probably too young for this, but I learned very early on as a child that saying “I’m bored” would quickly result in my being given a chore that I did not want to do.


    1. I actually thought of doing this yesterday, but decided it would probably cause a major meltdown I wasn’t ready to deal with. I think for the new year I am going to make a “chore jar” full of chores she is capable of doing and I will use it for the “I’m bored” and the “I want something” – she can do a chore or a few chores to earn something. There is a lot she can do now but this will make it a little more rewarding than just doing it when I tell her to do it.
