Hello bloggy peoples!!
Well I’m pretty sure by now that my followers have dropped by my absence. But that’s ok. I’m going to try to get back in to the blogging habit and post every week day with the help of the NaBloPoMo January 2012 Writing Prompts. I’m not sure if I’ll follow along exactly every day but I figured it’s somewhere to start and Lord knows I can use all the help I can get. I’m trying to find a purpose and focus for my blog rather than just floundering around. I need structure.
So today I’m gonna talk a little bit about our holidays. This year Christmas and New Years was seriously the best. I feel really bad saying this because it’s the first year after my step-dad passed away. I really missed him and I know my mom did too. Christmas was kind of magical for me though and I guess that’s where the guilt is coming from. I had always wanted my mom to come over to my house so that we could cook all day and spend time together. This year I got that. It was great. We spent hours making desserts and food. Any other year we would be at her house cooking all day. But I’m not going to let the bad override the good. Things are just different and it doesn’t have to be bad.
I did get some pretty amazing gifts this year. Adam got me a 5 in 1 griddler than can grill, griddle, or do a panini press. My mom got me a Nook Color that I’m LOVING! Who knew reading a book while waiting in line at the grocery store could be so awesome?!? I’m also loving the free books on Fridays.
We made a lot of yummy food:
Our New Years was pretty low key. The guys blew things up, we spent too much on fireworks, and we played a ton of cards. Our niece and nephew were down staying with Adam’s parents so we played a lot of Phase 10, Skip Bo, and some game called Apples to Apples.
Adam and I spent a lot of quality time together these past two weeks since he has been on vacation. I’m really going to miss that now that he’s back to work and his mood will get grumpier as the weeks go by. But I’m going to try to stay positive and help his good mood last as long as possible.
I hope everyone had a very happy Christmas and New Years!!
