Missing Monday - Almost

Not quite, but I almost missed posting today. Truth of the matter is, the holidays have me so turned around I forgot it was Monday.

So how was everyone's holiday? Lots of fun, or lots of stress? Enjoying family or annoying family? Wish it would never end, or can't wait for it to end?

I spent a lot of my time wishing I could be writing instead, and then when I did get some writing done I felt guilty because I should have been doing other things. I did a heck of a lot of reading as well, for which I felt no guilt at all. :-)

Last Monday I didn't really post any goals, so I don't have much to recap, other than the fact that we're halfway through the holidays and my sanity is still intact - more or less. This is in spite of cooking five individual game hens for Christmas Eve dinner, having to drive to every convenience store in town on Christmas Day to find something to use as filling for the pies I forgot I was supposed to take to the sister-in-law's, a bake-a-thon to get all my baking done, and driving to Hamilton and back to visit more family.

And I'd like to point out I did all this without my traditional Christmas snow. In fact, it poured rain on Christmas Day. Boxing Day there was water everywhere. And what is it doing today, now that it's too late? Snowing.

I lost my internet connection off my lap top briefly, but was able to fix it myself. And despite all that, I managed to do my Christmas trivia posts, a poetry post, my favorite holiday videos, and chapter 19 of the Space Opera. I think I even managed to comment on a few blogs here and there.

This Week's Goals

For tomorrow's random post I'm going to explore some New Year's traditions. If there's a lot of them I'll carry them over for Wednesday's post as well. Thursday will be the poetry form of Trolaan, and Friday, of course, will be another chapter of the Space Opera.

The rest of my time will be spent editing, figuring out how to program the phones we got for Christmas, and probably copious amounts of reading.

So how about you? Any big plans for the New Year? Anyone else off this week? Are you kicking back or catching up? Inquiring minds want to know! :-)

LOL - I wish I'd forgotten it was Monday. :-) But alas, I had to go back to work. I do get off at noon on Thursday though, which is fun. I'll try to send you some snow - we have plenty.

I thought my holiday was crazy (both families are annoying), but it was nothing compared to yours from the sounds of it. Glad you survived at least partially sane - and you have this week off to recover and read lots of books! Woohoo!

We're going to a concert on New Year's eve, and staying home *all day* on Jan. 1st - bliss!

Have a great week... :-)

Sounds like fun times out your way. It rained here on Christmas too. But we are covered again in snow :o)

My holiday was good. We're hanging with friends on New Year's Eve, then I have the whole next week off, so my lil sis is coming to stay - should be fun!

Have a good week and Happy New Year :o)

We had a nice quiet Christmas, and yes, now it's new year it's snowing! It sounds like you had a very productive time, even if you wish you could have done more writing...

Best of luck for the new decade!
