So we’re a week in now…and I’m posting my first blog of the year. Today was the day for the tree to come down, and truth be told Big Daddy took it down in about 5 minutes time. I think had it stayed up any longer he would have divorced me early next week. He’s a patient, loving man, but there is a limit to everyone’s holiday spirit.
In my defense, I’ve (we’ve) been a little busy. I didn’t really post much through Thanksgiving and Christmas because I wanted to enjoy the holidays. Then I got a rash (which is like 2 weeks of explaining in itself), had to deal with life and kids and ex’s that have nothing better to do than create drama, had family visit, which was AWESOME, went to the ER (on NYE – first time for that), had insomnia for about 3 weeks on meds and still do (which I could have blogged everynight because of that), and well, that’s enough to keep you busy right?
All in all, this year has smoothly transitioned over from last year. I don’t like change too much, or too fast, or weird, so plans and normalcy is a good thing.
I do plan to blog more often and about things that matter, or things that matter to me to vent and keep my sanity. I hear that my rash may be a stress reaction – and to that I say HA! I have no stress! I’d be lying, but it sounded good.
Stress creeps up on us all, holidays, bills, work, kids, ex’s, family, life, no matter how happy, well adjusted, dying to be unstressed you are, it will find you, and if you choose to ignore it, it will talk louder (and show up as a full body rash for no apparent reason).
I hope you had a great holiday season, and even though the holidays are over, I’m still very excited that it’s winter and we have more snow forecast this week!
What’s keeping you busy? Stressed? Have you blogged every day? (C’mon, make me feel better and reply!)
