Holidailies NOT

I'm pretty sure I was the anti-Holidailies, as I pretty much stopped blogging during the period the Holidailies participants vowed to blog daily! (Dec 6 - Jan 7). Oh well, I'm hoping I can say "I'm back!" to frequent blogging and get back in the groove. I miss blogging.

In the meantime, it's crunch time for our annual Twelfth Night party tonight, postponed from Jan 5 due to the streets-o-ice around here. Today's high should reach 50F, so all is safe again. All that's left today is making a chocolate Bundt-type cake, prepping the fresh veggies, setting up the party meatballs in the slow cooker, and... decluttering!!! (Aaaaaaaaah! -- but it sure makes for a neat, tidy house.)

THEN I need to deal with the stuff I WAS going to do after the party this week, but that "after the party" time this week has telescoped down to nil. I'll be doing most of that stuff this weekend. For instance:

...Write up minutes to read at a meeting on Saturday morning. Write up my brief bio blurb for my nomination as parish delegate to our statewide annual church convention (been 3 times, really like that experience -- true!). Call all the parents of the kids Son1 wants to invite to his birthday party, which we pushed off to next weekend, and poll them on Sat vs. Sun. Prepare the Godly Play story for my Sunday school class. Prep for my MOMS Club frugal group (I toss topics into the discussion), the community library expansion committee meeting, AND a church-related meeting Monday. ...and there's other stuff later in the week, but so it goes.

The kids got a GameCube for Christmas and I decided to learn to play this stuff, so I'll be taking a racing break at some point today, and maybe this weekend I'll work on learning to play Quidditch or solve those frustrating puzzles in the Polar Express game :)

A happy and blessed new year to you and yours!

Hey, Barb - Welcome back!

I, too, have been silent during the holidays. I, too, have missed my blog. It's good to be back, huh?
