Catching up

Yesterday I finally got around to taking down our Christmas decorations and putting up our official January decorations. Those consist of snowmen of every imaginable height and fatness. I also did the first thorough housecleaning since Christmas…which has already been two weeks!

The house seems so empty and quiet without two certain little girls running around. Just yesterday we reluctantly put away Ruth’s high-chair and removed Mary’s baby soap from the kitchen sink. We’re discovering various objects in odd places. A few nights ago, I remembered that Ruth had played with my alarm clock. Sure enough, my alarm was set for 10:32 AM! 🙂

Today I finished my Christmas thank-you notes. In the same spirit of Catching-Up, I decided to get this blog running in earnest by actually posting on it. Because one of my many New Year’s resolutions was to be a little bit more faithful in blogging. You know, not just posting once every 3 1/2 months. 🙂 So we’ll see if that resolution holds up as well as my others have so far. (In five of the eight days of 2010 I have been off sweets, and lost two pounds! That’s a good start, don’t you think?)

I’d better go finish my catching-up. Although I think I’ll be doing that for quite awhile. It’s amazing how everything piles up when you are gone most of a month! 🙂
