Gingerbread and Parties and Snow, Oh My
First I want to say thank you to everyone for telling us about your holiday wishes on Friday’s post. It was fun reading all of them! Glad I’m not the only one who wants a maid, a new office set-up, or a new computer. In the end, it’s so great to know that God’s taking care of us and we have all we truly need… and whether or not those material dreams ever come true, we’ll all be fine.
So here it is, the start of a new week, and I can’t think of a darn thing to blog about. Don’t you think it’s hard to concentrate this time of year? My work load hasn’t let up and I’m focused on getting a few projects ready for submission and out the door as soon as possible. Plus, the schedule besides work is pretty crazy.
This weekend, my daughter had her very first school dance, which was an exciting milestone and she had a terrific time. (Although I’ve asked myself more than once… how did we get here? Yesterday she was a toddler.) We went to a Christmas party on Friday night and had a lot of fun, especially with the white elephant gift exchange. Saturday night, another party, this one a formal Fire Department shindig so I got to dress up. All these activities make it seem like the holidays—go figure. Plus it was snowing most of Sunday and the outdoor temperature never got above ten degrees (it was minus 2 when we went to church), making it a nice day to stay inside with the family. We did some cooking and baking, decorated our gingerbread houses, watched football and Christmas specials. A perfect Sunday.
So what I’m saying is, my head isn’t into blogging right now. Sorry about that. I promise I’ll have something for you tomorrow. Meanwhile, why don’t you tell me something. Anything. What’s going on in your life? How are your holidays? Will you travel or stay home? Do you prefer ham, turkey, or roast beef? How’s your writing going? Aren’t you excited that both Lost and American Idol are going to be starting their new seasons soon? Talk to me, entertain me, enlighten me. Whatever.
