The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

The New Year.

I am sorry that it has been so long since I have posted but I think the only person that missed me was my sister. So, not sure who I am apologizing to...

December flew by. I can't believe that it is January 1, 2014. This year is going to bring some great things - some I already know about (nope, not pregnant, sorry folks... but I'll be chaperoning some girls on a SCUBA trip this summer and to Salt Lake City, Utah this fall!) and some that I am sure will come as a surprise and unexpected blessing. I don't think it will be a perfect year but I am going into it with high hopes.

Christmas holidays were great.  A few days of deep cleaning in the house - steam cleaning carpets, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, and doing more loads of laundry than I thought possible to have 5 beds with clean sheets - brought my family up for Christmas day. I was so thrilled to have them here - all my people under one roof. It was sweet times. They all left Christmas afternoon and the house was suspiciously quiet on the 26th. Lots of reading - new Kindle!! - and a little more cleaning found us hosting Chad's family for Christmas on the 27th. A house full of loud and love our little rancher has been the past week or so!

Today brings my last day off for the Christmas break and I'll be sadly headed back to work tomorrow. Thankfully it is a 2 day week and then Chad is off this weekend for us to spend a few more days together. I have so enjoyed these days of being home but I am looking forward to getting back to the routine of daily work and gym visits.

Christmas d├ęcor to come down this weekend. Wish me luck. The house always looks so sad after being so festive for a month+. Then...finishing the bathroom is our top January priority. Happy New Year!

your most faithful reader is the mom who does not do facebook and depends on the blog for news of your activities/family life, etc.. so it's not only your sister who wonders if you fell in a hole?
