I Love You Like a Blogger Roundup – 12/19

Walmart-FamilyMobile-MarathonHere it is, the weekend before Christmas.  Or as I like to call it, The Calm Before The Storm.  Next week is a short school and work week, and then the entire Pizel family is off for the remainder of the year.  There will be presents to open, traveling to do, and family to see.  I will enjoy the time off, and spending time with family, but I’ll give myself until Sunday before I’ve gone completely bat shit crazy because of the lack of my normal routine.  Yes, I’m majorly Type A, and the struggle is going to be very real.

Then there’s the whole budget thing.  With the entire family home all day for close to two weeks there will likely be some amount of cabin fever and boredom.  There will be temptation to leave the safe no-spending zone of our home and venture into the cruel world that wants to suck my wallet dry of funds.  Entertainment funds that are usually reserved for bulk use on the weekend will now start to leak into use during the week.

Yes, I am looking forward to the time off, and the time with my family.  But just a little part of me will be happy to have things back to normal come January 5th, too.

Does your entire family end up at home for an extended period of time this time of year?  Do you find scheduling and budget challenges?  Does a little part of you look forward to the return to normal after the new year?  Don’t answer yet, first get your fist pump on and check out my favorite posts of the week.  Then, after careful consideration, give me your best shot in the comment section.  🙂

  1. Thanks for the link love Travis!!!!

  2. Enjoy the time with the family! We will all be off too for an extended time during Christmas. It can be a challenge to keep the budget under control, but you can hunker down with some football games, movies, books etc and enjoy the quality time with family!

  3. Nothing changes in my world only that I’ve gotten busier with work which I am MUCH happier about! When you freelance, holidays typically blend, as do weekends with every other day. 🙂 Enjoy your time off and TRY to relax if you can! And thanks or the blog mention! 🙂

  4. I’ve got 13 shows to perform in the next 5 days then a day off for Christmas before wrapping it up with a 6 show weekend. Holidays are when performers go into overdrive 🙂

    Enjoy your time off!
