I have been in hibernation since Christmas - I managed to delay the effects of all the stress I've been under for a little while, but after Christmas I really crashed. I haven't been doing much, except maybe a little reading and cleaning. Sometimes I just sit. If you know me, you know how rare this is - I very rarely sit and do NOTHING - even when I'm watching T.V., I feel the need to be working on something. But all that is about to go by the wayside, since I am gearing up to go back to teaching on Wednesday. The days of sitting will soon be over! But it's been a great Christmas break.
I hosted Christmas Eve this year, 2nd year in a row. I read somewhere that if you do something 3 years in a row, it becomes a tradition. We will see about next year! We all went to my church's Christmas Eve candlelight service, in which Mike played. Then we came back to the house and had fondue. It's casual and we have a lot of fun rotating around the table to get to the different types of cheese. And then there's the CHOCOLATE fondue, too!!
My cousin April was happy to provide plenty of cuddles for Miss Mollie.
Mollie tried to pay her in kisses :)
"Hi, I'll just climb on the couch and wedge myself into that impossibly tiny space, thanks."
"this is not what I had in mind..."
I did get a few non-doggifed pictures:
