Blog Ketchup

It’s too bad that my blog has been ‘broken’…but Dennis fixed it. Isn’t he just the most? To say the least.

Christmas was fine. Just fine. I say that because I still struggle to find deep meaning in the Hallmark-type occasion that rears it’s ugly head. I hope as I debrief the events, I can come up with ways to bring a little more significance and less stress to my family’s holidays. Our families were generous to us and the boys and that is lovely. It was mostly quiet and fairly low-key, and in that, I take deep satisfaction.

And New Year’s. LOVE. IT.

It’s a time of for reflection and planning, taking inventory and assessing. I love the fun of celebrating with friends and family. No pressure – just fun. LOVE. IT.

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
~Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1850
