It has been a few weeks since I last posted, and I apologize. December 2009 has, to be blunt, sucked. Jake’s diagnosis and slow decline, my mom ended up in the ER and I was in Pennsylvania for several days with her, people at work seemed to become particularly affected by the pre-winter break crankies. The D.C. Snowpocalypse of 2009 struck the day of my annual holiday party, causing us to cancel my favorite night of the year right when I really could have used a few hours surrounded by people I care about. Various other little things that aren’t worth whining about it on my blog. I was wrapping Christmas gifts last night and I realized that I purchased a lot of things that are soft and warm, which I think was subconscious reaction to recent life events.
Blech, enough whining. I’m on winter break now, so I hope to spend some time catching up on blogging while I hang out on the couch with my boys. I’ll start this week with resuming Thursday Tidbits and Photo Friday. I have at least ten books that need blog posts, some of which are holdovers from summer reading, so lack of content opportunities is not an issue.
In the meantime, I hope you have/are having a happy holiday season!
