I’m back….

So if you haven’t noticed I’ve been gone… I didn’t plan on taking the holiday season off from blogging but I got lazy.

On top of the laziness there was the holidays and we can’t forget the unforgettable illness that had it’s death grip on 4 out of 6 of us in my house. To make it more fun the toddler got sick and then a few days later I got sick.. oh the joy!

Worst. Holiday. Ever.

So, the holidays are done (yay!), I’m back to work (boo!), and looking forward to a great year of blogging and social media (yay!).

Want to know how I know the holidays are done? Well, my tree told me.

fallen tree

As I lay on the couch dying a slow, painful death the tree fell over all by itself.  I must say that it did add a bit of comic relief for that day…

Things we learned:

  • Our tree wasn’t wearing it’s life alert bracelet.
  • Our tree fell… and couldn’t get back up.
  • Our tree shed worst the furriest animal ever.
  • The tree falling over, you being sick, and helpful kids gets the ornaments put away fast with no help from you other than giving directions from the couch. #awesome
Anyway, I’m back.
Oh and that’s all you’ll probably see from me as far as a holiday wrap up.

    That’s pretty funny that your tree fell over all by itself! Sorry you were all sick. How miserable.

    Welcome back!

      Thank you!! I was pretty shocked that it fell over… it was the first year we had a real tree and it may be the last!

    Haha- love the tree story. And we had that same stomach bug. I must have a stomach of steel, because I’m the only one that didn’t get it!

    Oh girl so sorry! No one should spend Christmas that way. But well it will definitely be one you remember.

    Help I’ve fallen but I can’t get up! Too funny
