I didn't plan on taking such a long break from my blog between the holidays, but that's just what happened. It seemed like we had plans every single day for the last 10 days or so. I've totally ignored the whole blogosphere, so please forgive me for not visiting you, nor posting here.
I'm in the midst of taking down my Christmas decorations.
I know. It's too EARLY.
But my real tree was giving off some funky smell. Well, not so much FUNKY, per say, but just a real REAL strong pine tree smell. It was making me nauseous and giving me migraines. Have you ever heard of such a thing? I just had it. So last night I just began ripping off the ornaments and lights and within the hour the tree was stripped. We tossed it outside on our patio and that is where it is sitting at this moment. We'll have to haul it into our garage (so we won't piss anybody off on the condo board) and wait till garbage day.
I promised myself that I would give myself the day off and lie around on the couch all day, watching TV, and not even showering if I so pleased. But then reality set in and I scrubbed two bathrooms, washed six loads of clothes, made some ham with lentils soup, and made a big dent in the taking down of Christmas decorations. Now I'm tired and no wonder. It's after 9:00 pm and I'm just sitting down!
So this post that was not supposed to be a post, but in fact turned INTO a post, is written just to wish all of you the Happiest of New Years.
Are you going out to celebrate?
I prefer to snuggle on the couch and watch a good movie.
Happy New Year and see you on the other side!
