Give me a break.

I took my Thanksgiving break seriously this year and decided to break from blogging. I have really found blogging to be a source of creativity, enjoyment, a place to vent and a way to enjoy even the mundane things of life. But I've also found it has the potential to take over my life. So as an exercise in self-control I decided to take a Thanksgiving vacation from myself. Our family enjoyed friends on Thanksgiving day, the mall on Black Friday, my parents Saturday through today and now it's back to normal life. It's really strange but over those several days we had many fun things to do, tons of people to enjoy and yet my mind wandered back to the blog. Things like "ooo.. that would be a funny post" or "If I grabbed my camera really quick..." those thoughts aren't bad but it's interesting that until about 3 1/2 months ago, I barely knew the world of blogging existed.

So, a break was nice (and most probably nedded.)

BUT I'M BACK! And boy are my fingers itching to get typing. So, I suspect I'll have some things to share this week (unless it ends up being a really boring week, but somehow that doesn't seem to stop me.) Things like: CVS shopping (by golly- I think I'm starting to get the hang of it), the start of Christmas parties (and parties and parties and parties), gift ideas, adoption updates (I'm about to send away for Quinn's finding ad- more on that later), crazy kid antics and much more.

Steve and I were saying last week that we shouldn't add anything more to December and then over the weekend we got 2 more email invitations to events friends' are hosting. We need to pace ourselves and try to enjoy this holiday season. Ready or not, here it comes!
