Whaddaya know… Haven’t posted in quite some time again. I was going to write a couple of weeks ago, but we got snowed in here and I didn’t want it to slip out to the world how very barely I was hanging onto my sanity. ;) Believe me, you were spared…be thankful.
So yes, we have been snowed in here for almost exactly two weeks. All of the holiday parties were canceled for me AND the kiddos, as well as the church services we were going to participate in and my community choir’s final concert and season wrap up party. :( Talk about ruining the holidays. I’m having a very difficult time ridding myself of the “bah…humbugs.” It was definitely the strangest Christmas I’ve ever experienced, mostly because… well, it just didn’t feel like Christmas. No caroling, no church, no midnight mass on Christmas Eve, no shopping, no Christmas cards delivered, etc. And being stuck inside so long and not having our usual routines to count on or friends to share the Christmas spirit with, the days just sort of blurred together, and it was hard to convince myself it was actually Christmas Eve once it finally rolled around.
We ended up having a great time on Christmas Day at Chloe’s though, so that salvaged the strange holiday season in some ways. We feasted, opened presents, and enjoyed some wassail and each other’s company. I have some pics up in the galleries, one of random activities in Nov/Dec, and one of primarily Christmas Day.
