I'm baaaaaaaack (did anyone notice I was gone?:))

I haven't posted in a while because Richard and I have been on a fabulous trip home to Arkansas for a post-Christmas Christmas vacation. It was a great trip, which I'll recap in words and pictures for your viewing delight after work today when I get my pics uploaded. We got to visit with our families and a few friends, play some blackjack and roulette at the casino, shoot skeet (well I spectated and helped my mother-in-law put away some Goose...the bev not the bird), eat and drink way to much, watch lots of movies, open Christmas presents, run endless 0.6 mile laps around my parents neighborhood, and just generally enjoy a week and a half of no work and no dogs/cats to take care of!

Just a random thought...to me, January is the worst month of all. Christmas is over, there is not much to look forward to until Valentine's Day, if that is a day you even look forward to at all. The "new" has worn off of winter yet spring is nowhere near. So, anybody out there love January and want to share why so maybe I can stop hating it? (sorry Elvis, Kim and Lynette, didn't mean to trash your birthday month)

Welcome back!

Someone commented on my blog recently that January is like the "Monday" of the year. Meh.

Glad you got to have some nice down time. I agree January is a crappy month.

Welcome back. Sounds like you had a great time. And just think...now there is only a week and a half left of January!

I agree it's a crappy month...but it's nice for sitting by the fire, cuddled up with the ones you love, sipping hot chocolate and Bailey's. It's also fun to be running outdoors in the cold, watching the crazy expressions you catch on people's faces thinking you're the one that's nuts. It's a month to get your 'spring' cleaning done-might as well-nothing else to do.
