no alarms at 6am. sad but true fact 7:30 is now considered sleeping in & it's wonderful!
being able to stay in our pajamas ... until 8am. or all day!
drinking coffee from an actual mug. multiple cups. not a coffee thrown in a to-go cup, on your way out the door, barely warm while finishing it.
no homework. this makes the kids, therefore mama is happy.
three extra hours added to each day. three hours not spent in the car going back & forth to school. this is three extra hours spent goofing around with the baby loves instead.
thanksgiving. hello food & food & pie & football. lots of football.
spending friday at home because i am not one of those people who wants to go get trampled over on black friday. instead that day will spent home, watching news stories about crazy shoppers.
christmas decorations. also when you get the christmas tree put up your kids might say something like " this was the best day of the whole year" and you'll melt into a puddle.
family. who doesn't love an extra dose of family. thankfully i have one that isn't crazy & we all love getting together on thanksgiving. no crazy aunt here ....
