Have you recovered from the holidays yet?

Trying out a new toy.  I don't know why one must stand on a chair to play DS, but who am I to judge?
Christmas carnage.
Santa's workshop temporarily moved to our living room on Christmas morning.
Christmas came and left in a wild blur.  We started early and ended late. In between unwrapping gifts and then assembling many of them, family visited and delicious food was consumed.  We were full for days, both physically and socially.  New Year's Eve was spent very quietly.  I snuggled on the couch with a glass of wine and my new heated throw (thanks, Hon!) and watched a fantastically bad movie with Richard.  (Anchorman: The Ron Burgundy Story, if you are curious.)

With Richard home from work for a few days I also got to indulge in hours of reading time.  I finished off a book, started and finished another and am well on my way into a third.  (For those of you who care, I finished The Red Tent, started and finished The Year of Living Biblically, and am now deeply invested in Zone One.  I do realize that One of these Books is Not Like the Others, and I am OK with that...you should see what I have planned next!)

I don't do New Year Resolutions as I feel that the real new year starts in September, and I hate making promises that I rarely keep. Having said that, over Christmas break I have tried to get into a more consistent workout routine that I hope can carry over once our regular school and activity routine returns.  The constant dull ache in my muscles is telling me this is long overdue! 

Happy January, I hope 2012 got off to a great start for you.

I haven't completely recovered from SURGERY yet. Fortunately, the holidaze were easy this year. All we had up was a tree, no other decorations. No gifts under the tree this year, the kids wanted money only.

I LOVE the Christmas Carnage photo. It looks like it was wonderful. :)
