This isn't an apology for not posting regularly through the holidays -- I know that I'd be flattering myself if a few of you even noticed my sporadic/non-existent blogging. But I do want to touch base with all of you because I've missed all of your comments.
Now that everyone in the house is back to normal health-wise, we are just enjoying the holidays. Today, some of my in-laws are coming to celebrate Christmas. I feel a little bad that it doesn't look like Christmas anymore around here -- I took down all of the decorations on the 27th because I just couldn't take all of the chaos anymore. Of course my little guy is excited to get more presents (just what he needs.) One more big meal to eat and then the dieting starts again. I've gained a few pounds back over the holidays and I'm thinking that it will be easier to take them off right away.
My husband and kids have been home for almost two weeks, so my reading and reviewing are taking a back-seat to other family activities (and rightly so.) We did lots of after-Christmas shopping, and we had a great time bowling. We also did a major toy/basement cleanup. While I am enjoying the family time, I have to admit that I'm just about ready for life to go back to normal.
Another reason that I'm reading less is that I'm watching a lot more television. My husband and I are catching up on Season 2 of Dexter; and I've been watching lots of football! We also got a Blu-Ray for Christmas, so I've been watching some movies. I saw three movies in the last three days -- so unlike me because I don't think I watch three movies a year. They were all just okay for me, but I'm not a big movie person. I saw Mamma Mia, Get Smart and 21 ( I definitely liked the book BRINGING DOWN THE HOUSE way better than the movie version.)
I finally started reading again the past few days, but I have read some good ones! Now if I can just get back to writing some reviews. That's my goal for Monday morning when the husband is back at work and the kids are back in school. I started IMMORTAL last night for our January book club and so far I'm really enjoying it. I need to finish that one soon so I can start THE HOUR I FIRST BELIEVED for the Book Club Girl BlogTalk Radio show in January.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
