Just a quick note to let you all know that I am indeed alive, and that I will try to resume my posting schedule (and I use that term loosely) this coming week. I'm hangin' with the fam at my folks' house, stuffing my face and basking in the familiarity and closeness that is ever-abundant in this, the home I grew up in.
For almost a week now, I have been wallowing in the holidays. In my own family, this means goodness, excess, and love of family. In JeepMan's family, it means excess, tension, and a thinly-veiled and ill-maintained facade of "family appreciation." It's sad, really.
But if nothing else, these contrasting holiday scenarios have made me appreciate what I have even more.
And they provide fantastic blog fodder!!
In upcoming posts look for:
-A list of my top 3 worst Christmas gifts EVER...one of which was this year.
-A rundown of Christmas at JeepMan's, with character sketch emphasis.
-A funny or two from the kidlets.
-And, if I get on the ball, a New Year's introspective.
So thanks for hangin' with me, and I'll see you real soon.
