I wasn’t much into Christmas this year. Too much going on, too many stresses I think. I spent some time today taking down all the decorations. The only thing left is the tree in the living room. And this time, I have repacked items a lot better and wound up with two empty cardboard boxes. Should be easier to find next year anyway.
I didn’t send out any cards at all. I’m sorry. I know some people look forward to the handmade cards I send, and I did have plenty of materials to work with. I didn’t have time, inclination or much holiday spirit. I mean, I hardly took any pictures.
Oh, don’t get me wrong – I did enjoy spending the holiday with my family, the kids, and seeing everyone eat (it’s how I show my love) .
But we’ve had tons of drama over trying to sell our house to frustrating buyers (mostly un-blogged), and I’ve been working my hiney off. .. working. I had a big client I did some consulting with and I earned us some money. I was running around the house doing everything I could, and while stressful, I somehow managed to loose three whole pounds on top of that.
Yes, even with holiday eating. 😀
I am looking forward to the new year. Not just to throw off the past year, which has mostly not been fun at all, but because there are new and exciting things coming up, some new directions to go in some details to finalize and projects to launch.
It can’t come soon enough – if only I can stay awake. 😀
