bringin' back the blog

Yes, I know it's been a while and I apologize. I do miss blogging, I just didn't have the heart for it for a while. The summer was busy and wonderful. The chickens became overwhelming, but that's a story for another time. The girls are wonderful and growing. I'll try to sprinkle in updates here and there.

I've decided to bring back the blog this holiday season. I may have mentioned it a few hundred times, but I do NOT dig the holidays. I loathe the commercialism most of all, but December also brings the Parade of Dead People. I know more than one person who died on Christmas Eve and let's face it, the holidays really are never the same after something like that happens. The list of what I do not like about the holidays is endless. On the other hand, there are actually a few things that I do like about the holidays. True, they are few and far between, but they do exist! So for the month of December, to get myself back in the habit of blogging, I am going to TRY to name one thing every day that I like about Christmas. I'm nervous...I don't know if I can list 31 things I like, but I'll try. December starts tomorrow ;)

I've also added some new friends to my blogroll, so check 'em out when you have time.

Wow, woman, I LOVE Christmas and I'm not sure I can name 31 things!!! More power to ya! I hope you can reclaim Christmas little by little.

Thanks for the encouragement, Nicki ;) Honestly, I'm doing it for my kids. It kind of freaks them out that I don't enjoy the holiday season. I also agreed to put up the tree BEFORE Christmas Eve this year ;)
