allo allo...
been about two weeks since I took a small break from this place. It was a much needed break (a couple of unexpected events I won't go into sort of forced me to go into blog hibernation) I had a few things to sort out and now am ready to start blogging again. Had an amazing Christmas as did the kids, I think they got nearly everything they were hoping for. Christmas is so much more intense through the eyes of a child, something we perhaps forget as we get older.

Missed all of you guys heaps, I surely have much to catch up on.
---
A couple things that have happened since the December 14th pause..
---
1) It's been nearly a month since I've had a drink, even given two Christmas Parties, and three bottles of booze I won at said parties sitting in my pantry.
2) I have a date for New Years Eve. We're going to Boston. Should be fun.
---
Well that's it for today .. I'm at work till 11, something about making up for the holiday. Ugh...
---
Picking up the kids at 11:30 and then off to a fun day of shopping (they have to use all of their gift cards up after all) Between the cards and good old fashioned cash, each of them has about $250 to spend. Let's not even get into the gifts they received.
---
more tomorrow ...

Welcome back! Glad you and the kids had a great Christmas. And congrats on the no-drinking thing! Starting out was always the toughest for me. Now it's a habit, so I don't even really think about it anymore.

Glad you're back!

*hugs*
