I just wanted to drop a note to those of you who are die-hard readers to apologize for not posting over the holiday season. Sometimes life gets hectic around here. Christmas for our family of five this year included thirteen rounds of antibiotics, eight doctor’s appointments, seven trips to the dentist, five migraine headaches, two urgent care visits, a canceled trip to Grandma’s, a check up with the orthopedist, one oral surgery, and a new health insurance policy that I’d love to shove in a tree.
Fortunately, all our health troubles were minor things – throat infections, cavities, wisdom teeth, etc. We have insurance and though I don’t like the new changes, I’m thankful we have it. All in all, we had a very pleasant Christmas at home with just us, too many cookies and too many hours spent playing the video games Santa brought. (Shame on Santa for adding to my children’s video game addiction. Bad Santa!!)
Now we’re ready to face the New Year. Our exercise and weight loss goals are in place. I’m throwing out the last of the candy. (Except the good stuff, which will go into my secret hidey spot just in case I really need it – you know, like in case of zombie apocalypse or my teenagers are really driving me nuts.) I’ve committed to my writing goals for the new year: keeping up my blog and writing my next book. (The outline is mostly done and I’ve got the first four pages written. Yay!) School will start up again in a few days and Open Doors Now will, too. The sun is shining, the roses need pruning, and my nose has stopped running.
You know, I think it’s going to be a good year.
