Last Day of School Before The Holidays, The Carnivals

by The Smarter Wallet on December 19, 2008

How is the holiday season treating you so far? Here’s how the last day of school before the holidays turned out for us today.

When you describe your day as exhausting, you may not have envisioned a day of non-stop partying with preschoolers and Kindergartners, which was exactly what I found myself subjected to as I celebrated the last day of school before the Christmas break.

So here I am finishing up the rounds of the financial carnivals a little dazed after the sugar high from frosted home-made vanilla gingerbread men, stars, snowmen and Christmas tree cookies, and the whirlwind of crafts and clean up at the schools (nope, I’m not a teacher, just a regular parent of a couple of school-aged kids).

Top the last few days off with watching a couple of school Christmas programs and pageants, and dealing with hyped up kids stoked on more sugar and I guess I’ve earned myself a well-deserved break.

And this is probably just “part one” as we gear ourselves for the main family event next week!

So have fun at my virtual carnivals, and ‘xcuse me, while I wind down somewhere quiet. 🙂
