The kids go back to school next week

Boo. And Scott goes back to work. Double boo. I really thought Christmas break would be relaxing. I envisioned spending whole days in our pajamas while laying around and playing with our new toys. I thought we'd have plenty of time to do all the things we wanted to do and even end up feeling bored. In the weeks leading up to this break we frequently said to each other, "we'll just work on that during the break." Now here we are, the last day and I can't believe how full our time has been. Not in a bad way, not at all. Just full, busy. Full of good stuff. Food, and thorough cleaning, and basketball at the church, and an overnight getaway, and tons of games, and family, and bingo. Anyway, I'd love to share some photos of the magic, but I left my camera at the Compound a whole week ago. Rotten luck. Perhaps next week I'll have some time to regroup and share. Maybe I'll retire the '09 reading list. Maybe I'll make some goals. Maybe I'll even make some of them public so I'll be more likely to hold myself to them. Boy, this was one meandering post. I'll put a new Chuck Norris joke on the sidebar to tide you over...
Happy New Year!

Whatever you do with your blog in 2010, please, please, please, keep posting pictures of all those creative things you make. It's such a service to all of us, really. Gives us good ideas, as well as enjoying your talent.

How have I missed the CN jokes on the sidebar?!!! My kids make up CN jokes all the time, even though they don't really know who he is.
