I can't believe how long it's been since I posted.  This has been one crazy ass month!

Just a quick note (it's getting late for me) to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.  I hope everyone is able to enjoy the festivities and not get too stressed out.

I've been feeling so out of touch with everyone ... yes, it's my own fault ... I haven't been in blogland in far too long.

Since I'm actually going to have time during the holidays, I'm going to re-vamp this site and get back to business.

I've slipped the last few weeks (know anyone else who has done that?) first due to my schedule, then 'cause I got sick and I don't work out when I'm sick. 

We're having dinner for 9 (which is a nice size) on Christmas ... yours truly volunteered herself and cook ... although I am getting a little help from the other ladies .... it'll be the first time in at LEAST 15 years that hubby's family has all been together for Christmas Day.

I miss my mom and dad but I'm really glad I have the "other half" of my family who are near.  My bro is in Brazil visiting his wife and family (long story) and my sis is up north and neither of us travel at this time of year for that distance ... she has us at Thanksgiving.  After giving up so many Christmases because I didn't want my parents to be alone, mum will finally have her whole family together.  I'm really happy for her.

So Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
