Hello! And yes, I am still alive. Thanks for asking!

O.k. so no one asked but just in case anyone was wondering and was just too shy to ask, I am still alive!  Kicking, even!

Since my last post, I have completed all of my Christmas preparations, packed up the family, driven to MA from NC, wrapped all the presents, and celebrated a lovely Christmas with the family and Dan's family. 

We have also endured a blizzard, dug out from the blizzard, gone sledding multiple times in borrowed snow pants because the only thing I forgot to pack were the kid's snow pants, and have eaten so much Brigham's ice cream that I now have what I like to refer to as "ice cream gut" or sometimes "big fat Brigham's belly". 

We are in MA until Sunday after which point life will resume as normal on Monday morning.  And normal means work for Dad, school for the kids and Wal-mart for me.  I may even try to get in a run...which hasn't happened since Thanksgiving Day. 

Monday could be a bad day with lots of tears for everyone.  I'll keep you posted!

I am ready for our "normal" to return too. Although we have had a nice holiday it will be nice to return to normalcy too!

Happy New Year!

Monday is going to be painful! Even though I get up at the same time thanks to the ever trusty internal clocks in my kids, at least I don't have to get dressed and leave the house until I want to!

Sounds like life has kept you busy. Me too. Glad you had a good holiday vacation. Monday will bring some "back to real life" tears for us too.

Hi Beth! I'm glad to hear that you're still alive...and kicking. :)
Sounds like you had a fun, and busy, Christmas holiday. Our kids say that they are not ready to go back to school, but I think, deep down, they really are. Or maybe that's me that is ready for back to school. Yep, it's me.
Hope you have a wonderful day.
