Happy New Year!
The house is still decorated, the tree is still up, the envelopes for my Christmas Greetings are only halfway addressed (I’m now ready for the ‘M‘s) and we are finally watching traditional Christmas movies at our house (The Muppets’ Christmas Carol, It’s A Wonderful Life, Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town). After all, it is still Christmas: yesterday I was looking for my “seven swans a-swimming” but to no avail — we are birdless here. Still, I’m thankful to have the time to relax and watch movies with the kids while blogging this evening.
There is plenty going on in my life, but some of it is unbloggable for various reasons. And you probably don’t want to hear about my sore arm which has been bothering me for several months. January is promising to be a busy month at work: I’m the one who collects annual reports from each committee and group, and then I have the fun of putting together the combined annual report for the corporation; at the same time, I’m also responsible for the end-of-year giving reports that, by law, must be sent before the end of the month. Of course, those things are on top of the usual weekly and monthly activities and paperwork.
All of the above to explain why I won’t be around much this month…
If you want something wonderful and even exciting, check out the giveaway happening over at Lori’s blog, Pretty Things. She’s an amazing woman who is dealing with some major health issues and yet she manages to be positive much of the time. Her current Pay-it-Forward Giveaway is an example of her positive outlook on life.
I’ll be here addressing envelopes in the hopes of getting my Christmas Letter out before the 12th Day of Christmas (January 6th).
