Well, I have spent a lot of time trying to publicly gather my thoughts about the Holidays over the past two months with my Christmas/Holidays Unplugged posts. I hope they have been helpful to you. I know they have been helpful to me.
I think I have made some progress this year (fewer gifts, very few cards, thoughts about what the holidays mean to us, etc.). But this year, we are doing something different. We are going away on vacation over Christmas, to a warm beach in Mexico.
I am looking forward to it, although the last time we made this trip the baby got a cold and was miserable, she was only interested in eating sand on the beach, and the airline lost the suitcase with all the baby stuff in it. This time though, it will be better.
I am hoping that “a year off” will give me time to put all my new thoughts and ideas in perspective so that I can be better prepared to have the kind of Christmas I want next year.
It will also be good for my blog addiction since I will be without a computer. I might be able to check in once in a while to moderate any comments, but I probably will not post.
Happy Holidays to all! And I’ll see you in 10 days or so!
