friends & fellow warrior parents. It's Friday....likely the beginning of the winter holiday for our kids. Chaos now begins - less than a week before Christmas. kt is off to respite at 3 pm this afternoon & I'm ready to do some of my gift wrapping & elf duties. Before kt leaves for respite she & I are making a favorite holiday snack involving pretzels, rollos & M&Ms. Easy, fast & the kids love them. Keeps respites staff happy so kt gets invited back all the time. Gotta keep respite staff happy! I have a tree that I'm donating to the respite house & have it ready for pick up this afternoon :christmaslights: The kids will be decorating it this weekend & it will be up for 4 respite weekends. I'm glad that I have it to donate. My weekend plans are the above, painting a new still life, sleep & menu planning for next week. Have a good Friday, friends.
