Rest and Recap

Apparently, I took a break from blogging. It was quite unplanned. And now, just like that, it's over!

There is much to say; I have simply been too lazy to say it. Well, that's not entirely accurate. My online access was limited when we were in Michigan, then I was sick, sick, sick for three days after we got back. Then I got lazy. Or out of the habit. Or both. Good habits: so difficult to establish, so easy to let go. Pesky!

One line summaries of life:

Trip to Michigan: Our best visit ever, hands down.
Work: Still crazy! But entering a period of calm over the holidays.
Home: We got a Christmas tree. This is a Big Fucking Deal, people.
Au Pair: Love! Love! Love!
Maddie: Feisty. She now finger knits. Cat capes are her next project.
Riley: All football, all the time.
Exercise: Not so much.
Holiday Prep: Better than usual. That is to say I've bought some gifts.
Desire to Sleep: High. I'm in hibernation mode this year.
John's Birthday: Was on December 7. He would have been 38. *le grand sigh*
Excitement about Shopping at the New Portland H&M Tomorrow: Off the charts.

I don't even like shopping, but for some reason, I'm totally excited about H&M. I know the quality is poor, but still! Fun new clothes!

So yes, life is just rolling along. Good times, poor blog fodder. Now that I'm "caught up," perhaps I'll be better about documenting some of the details. I feel like I needed this post to get rolling again.

I'm glad to read things are going so well.

After I've not blogged for a while, I always need the summary post, too.

So happy to hear that things are going well, Snick. And I know what you mean about H&M; I too am excited to check out the new Portland store, when I come home for Christmas. Exciting, for sure!

I have never had any problems with the quality of the H&M clothes. I think the kids clothes hold up very well. I just am constantly confused by the way they size things since my kids don't fall into the typical "8 years" or "9 years" range.

I LOVE H&M and have some pieces that have lasted forever. I am wearing a 6+ year old blazer today :)
