Sunday Synopsis: December 19, 2010

It is really not Sunday!  I am really not losing my mind and getting my days of the week confused.  I simply am posting a day late because this past weekend has been so chaotic. Late last week, my dryer broke.  I had to catch up on all my last minute Christmas shopping (and I'm still not done).  And, I've had to figure out how to dry six loads of laundry hanging in my basement.  I've had to finish my Christmas cards (they are still not complete, but I'm hoping to finish them tonight!).  I have baking to do.  I have gifts to wrap.  And, the list just continues to grow!  I am sure that many of you feel that this sounds all too familiar.  It is just that time of year!  And, I simply have not had time to do much writing or reading.

I decided that I want that to change.  Reading and writing is more than just a hobby for me.  It is truly what motivates me, relaxes me, and as Melissa writes in her recent article, Percy Jackson Is My Therapist, heals me.  As I ponder my goals for the upcoming year, this is one that continues to stand out to me.  Over the next couple of weeks, I plan to continue to sort out my goals for the upcoming year.  And, once I figure out where I want my life to go in this area, I will keep you posted!

In the short term, I am hoping to share some of our favorite holiday classics this week!  I will continue with my Fairy Tale Fridays post as well.  It is also my hope at some point in the next couple of weeks to share books that we have received or gave for the holidays.  From there, I just plan on reading and enjoying my time with my husband and children for the holidays.  I am so excited to be able to spend some time with my kiddos that I am bursting with joy and cannot wait for Thursday to come so that I may have them all to myself and with no obstacles of work or school.

Until next time, I wish you the best of the holidays, no matter what you may celebrate!  Enjoy, relax, and have fun!


  1. Had to laugh at your "not losing your mind." I wish I could be as sure about mine. ;)

    Sounds like you have it all under control!

  2. LOL J. Kaye . . . My control is all an illusion. It's the only thing that saves my sanity!! :)
