It’s *not* the most wonderful time of the year…

So that was Christmas

Christmas is past and unlike previous years where there has always been a touch of post-Christmas letdown going on, this year I’m just sorta “meh” about it.  But then, “meh” sorta sums up my entire year.  On the whole, I’d say I’m just sorta glad Christmas is over with so...

Fa la l- oh, who cares??

So… er…  Hi. I’m still here, I SWEAR.  But I don’t know if you’ve noticed or anything.  But it’s like CHRISTMAS EVE tomorrow.  And I’m a knitter.  And as such I am burning the midnight oil (literally!) trying to get out a few last presents for the family.  And, sadly,...

Holiday Hangover

Whew. Christmas is over. Now it is time to begin the business of getting life back to normal. Clear the last of the wrapping and boxes and packages off the floor, start taking down the decorations, move the baby back into her room and crib, get both kids back on...

Yule Thoughts

I am EXHAUSTED, ya’ll.  We went to bed after midnight last night, the wind kept me up quite a bit and general Christmas excitement woke me up early.  I figure I maybe got four hours.  AM TIRED.  But things are far too exciting and noisy and confused and chaotic right...

And so this is Christmas.  It was a...

Glad Tidings

I must be getting old.  I’ve noticed that lately whenever things start getting busy that my mind turns into a piece of swiss cheese.  I can’t keep a single thought in my head for more than five minutes at a time and balls are getting dropped all over the place....

Christmas Double Eve

Wow, is it really Christmas tomorrow?  Like, for seriously? Good thing I’m ready.  I mean, I’m REALLY ready.  And, bless it, I am actually starting to “feel it”.  Just a little.  The barest dusting of snow we got in the wee hours last night helped.  As does getting the vast...

Four Years of Blogging

It has been four years since I started this blog.  In internet terms, that seems like an awful long time.  I remember that day rather well, actually.  I had been reading a few blogs and after receiving some some encouragement from a good friend, I decided to try the whole...
