It's been a week now since I've posted anything, that is the longest I've gone. I would give you all the reasons why but honestly, we would be here all day.
I guess life just got overwhelming and I had to prioritize, as much as I love blogging and keeping my family and friends up to date on what's going on with us, some things just take precedence.
Anyway, I'm glad to be able to pop in today and say hi. First I want to ask you all to say a quick prayer for my MIL, she had surgery yesterday because of her Breast Cancer, so please keep her in your prayers.
We had a good Christmas but I have to tell you, I'm actually glad it's over and done with, it's funny how you anticipate it for so long and then within a few minutes it's all over....this weekend I'm taking the tree down and the decorations too. Still trying to catch up with all the housecleaning, it hasn't been easy, Nicholas has a cold and I've been getting pretty close to NO sleep, and because he loves his mommy so much, he passed it to me yesterday so I'm feeling pretty cruddy.
I don't know ladies, but it seems I'm always down with a cold during the winter, my body must HATE this time of year.
I haven't been able to come visit anyone or comment on any blogs, I so apologize for it, I'm hoping that next week things will be back to normal. I miss my blogging time, it was such a wonderful way to get my feelings down and to chat with you all.
This time of year always gets me down though, I think being so far away from family is heart wrenching to say the least. I find myself missing them and missing places we were at together etc. That's the reason I posted that picture up above, it's from Estoril, one of my favorite cities in Portugal, I have so many wonderful memories of being at the beach with my brothers and my sister in law, what fun we had.
Anyway, I can't stay too long, Nicholas is not feeling well at all, and well, neither am I, think we're going to grab some lunch and then lay down for a bit.
Hope you're all having a wonderful day and have a great weekend. If I don't see you before, have a good New Year's Eve and please be careful out there. I always stay home that night, too many weirdos and drunk people for my taste :)
