The after-holidays slump

Things have been very quiet around here.

All the presents have been unwrapped (although the tree may not have come down yet...not confessing or anything like that, though). The new year has been inaugurated. The vacation from work is, regrettably over.

But it is nice in its own way. I love Christmas. LOVE it. But it's also stressful, hectic, and a bit wearying from all the running around we have to do (three places to visit on Christmas day, in addition to opening our gifts here!)

So I'm reveling in the fact that I don't have to wrap any more presents, bake or cook anything else (we're back to take-out...I'm actually waiting on a pizza delivery right now ;o).

The only downside is that Brie's been sick the last several days. It was her first stomach flu and was pretty scary for her. I tried to imagine what it would be like to be three and not understand why you keep having to run to the bathroom...scared me too!

But she appears on the mend. No fever or bathroom-trips today. So that's a good sign.

Found out I got my first review. It's from RT Book Reviews.

I'll post about it later tonight. Right now, I want to be sure I'm ready when the delivery guy rings the bell.

I'm starving.

I pray everyone had a safe, happy, and blessed holiday season!
