How are you? What have I missed? Any exciting news to share?
Not much new here on my end...just the typical December anxiety and rush! Much like mothers and childbirth, I tend to forget every year how hard it is to be insanely busy at work (our busiest season is December, which entails 55-60 hour work weeks).
The work itself isn't bad, I enjoy it honestly...being busy and having too much to do is MY kind of thing. It's the holiday on top of it that makes it harder. All those little things that you don't just need to do outside of work, but WANT to do...fitting those in takes work and lots and lots of patience and planning. I like to think I'm pretty good at it.
BUT admittedly, there are things I'm terrible at keeping up with.
*cough* this blog *cough*
So what I'm really trying to say is...I've been thinking about you and I miss you, but I may be absent a while longer. Just know I'll be back at it in January and that I'm spending what free time I have decorating Christmas cookies, snuggling my family, and spending time with people I don't get to see often enough during the regular year.
All good things.
Here's wishing you all a very Happy Holiday and the best of everything the season brings...especially those not purchased at a store.
One last thing: if there's anyone out there who is feeling a bit down this season, who may not have family close by, or does and is just plain lonely...feel free to email me at kristi(dot)chestnutt(at)gmail.com. I'll find time for you.
Otherwise, I'll see you all around the corner...in the new year!
