We are in it right now. Wes is still not sleeping in his bed and just endlessly screaming. We don‘t know what to do anymore.

We have one more Christmas to go, but here are my favorite bookish Christmas presents so far! I thought the bag would be bigger but it should still be ok for our library trips. The pouch is for my kindle to go in my purse bc I have a book cover on it and it gets a little banged up sometimes.

Bookwormjillk Poor Wes and poor Mom. I hope you all get some rest soon. 2mo
AmyG If I learned anything from being a Mom…..nothing lasts forever. May things get easier for you sooner than later. Great gifts! (edited) 2mo
Chrissyreadit How is sleeping going? Let me know if you ever want to chat about it! ❤️ maybe I can think of some strategies for you. 😘 (edited) 2mo
BethM @Chrissyreadit it‘s not. We‘ve tried cry it out, put back in bed, add the dog- nothing is working. We‘re at a loss. 2mo
Chrissyreadit Do you want to call? Email me at chrissyreadit@gmail.com and I will send you my number. We can talk and/or text. Let me know when. 2mo

Hey everyone, I graduated from college! I got a BA in history and I‘m now applying to graduate school in political science. I also finished my senior thesis, which ended up being 78 pages long… It‘s titled, In the Shadows of Brotherhood: Analyzing Three Women‘s Gendered Political Roles, Contributions, and Alternative Discourses in the Club of Great Powers During the Late Bronze Age (1500-1200 BC). I start a new job at Barnes and Noble tomorrow!

TheBookHippie @slategreyskies ♥️ I‘m doing the slow wake up and deciding pancakes or waffles … 👩🏻‍🍳 3mo
slategreyskies @TheBookHippie oh, both sound delicious! We‘ll be doing cinnamon rolls in a little bit, as that‘s been a tradition for me since my childhood. I get the Cinnabon ones that pop out of a can. I love those things! And the way the kitchen smells when they‘re baking. Mmmm 😋 3mo

Going on 19hrs without power....on Xmas Eve. The house isn't clean, the gifts aren't wrapped but Santa is coming either way!! Luckily, the generator is enough to keep us warm, somewhat fed and entertained for a while so we aren't going too nuts 🤣🤣

Hope everyone who celebrates has an amazing holiday!! Stay warm and stay safe 🥰🥰

TheLudicReader That was some crazy windstorm. I had to drive to Halifax and back on Friday to collect my daughter, and luckily missed the worst of it. Hope power has been restored and that you have a lovely Christmas Day. 3mo
FantasyChick @Leftcoastzen @TheKidUpstairs @TheSpineView @IndoorDame @Aims42 It was definitely a Christmas Eve for the books! We went about 20hrs. Which wasn't as bad as Fiona so it's all good. All the kids still came home and we had our traditions and games in the firelight. We won't forget this Christmas for a long time!! 3mo
FantasyChick @TheLudicReader It definitely was a storm for the books! Today's snow was a bit of a surprise but at least we were restored before Santa came. It was nice to have a white Christmas but I could have dealt with less lol. Glad you and your daughter missed the most of it!! I hear the marsh between us and Sackville was awful at one point with the wind. And then brutal snow past that. Hope you guys had a cozy Christmas! 3mo

I waited as long as I could but today's my last day before vacation so I can't wait anymore.

I know it's supposed to be secret but @DinoMom your #CreepyChristmas is on its way! It's more Christmas than creepy right now because the rest of the gift hasn't come in yet. I'll send it out whenever it makes it's appearance. I'm expecting it will be in the New Year. But something's better than nothing, right?


DinoMom I am okay if you want to wait until it‘s all in so you are not shipping twice ❤️ 3mo
FantasyChick @DinoMom No worries! I don't mind sending twice. Just remember when you see a little package that there's more to come! 🥰 3mo

Sharing this post for @TheBookHippie , who always seems to be finding ways to bring joy to others. On Christmas she will be posting this and using the hashtag #HolidayFriends. If you‘re alone, or need a break from festivities, or just want to chat please follow the hashtag and I‘m sure there will be plenty of friends. Please feel free to join in!

IndoorDame Can we actually follow hashtags on Litsy now? Or do I just check in on the hashtag whenever I want to see how the conversation is going? 3mo
Bklover @IndoorDame I usually just do a hashtag search using the search function. I‘m not sure of another way to do it! ❤️❤️ 3mo

On Christmas Day I will be posting often throughout the day so if you need to talk use this hash tag #HolidayFriends -follow it to find folks around to chat with so you're not alone or if you need a break from family or festivities or whatever. If you want to participate as well with posting just use the hashtag! I plan to sleep in and then eat a huge brunch and watch Sound of Music

Merry Christmas from the mitten, dear littens! It‘s a balmy 52 here today, and as you can see, quite green. But it‘s been a lovely Christmas so far, and it will continue this afternoon: euchre and foodstuffs with our bffs. Good cheer and good health to all!

#WishesAndBlessings Day 28: Occasionally, I am the #BahHumbug of the family as I don‘t particularly enjoy Christmas games or lots of noise during the holidays. Just being with these two is enough of me. But also deeply grateful for the huge family contingent here in Antioch, California where we are spending our holidays. Hope Christmas is glorious to all of you, Litsy people! Lots of 💕💕💕💕💕 and 📚📚📚📚📚
