"When are you gonna update your damn blog?"
the gruff voice of my father growled over the line this morning.
It was just the impetus I needed to get this long overdue post going.
I have been in blog avoidance of late,
the reasons for which I have no idea.
I'll think to myself,
I really should upload my blog
and then I don't.
And then, after a while,
it becomes this THING
that I should have done but haven't
and then I feel guilty and avoid it even MORE.
Writer's block sets in and then
Lo, here we are.
Great start to the New Year, eh?
No matter, it's my blog and I'm taking it back,
freaky issues and all!
Christmas was great.
My mom was missed but my dad and stepmom were here from Austin
as well as my brother, sister-in-law and nephew from New England.
It was fun to have them all here to celebrate with us.
And celebrate we did- from Jesus' birthday to my Dad's birthday to Trey's birthday,
it was a week-long party!
Waiting on the stairs for the green light to come running down. My favorite Christmas morning Child Torture.
We had the Hardware store hold it for us until the big snowfall melted and we could get to the backyard and the deck!
Enough festivities for now!
There you go, Dad.
