The Afterglow....

From the looks of the other blogs I read, there's not a lot being written - especially me! I've been trying not to be on the computer that much, with my family home. All of us are on vacation from work and school, so it's been nice chillin' with everybody. The other day, we went to a museum, which was a nice change, and it got us out of the house. My son has wanted lots of cuddling and game-playing. We've been playing Battleship and Aggravation. I have also built some Lego creations with him. We've watched some family movies like Evan Almighty and Hairspray. The girls got to spend some time with friends in the last couple of days, too.

Yesterday, I started getting the "it's almost time to get back into a routine" organization bug. I went through Ben's room, my desk, the office desk, etc. and got rid of a bunch of junk. I made out our family "week at a glance" calendar for the fridge, so we could all get an idea of what our schedules are going to be. It kind of makes me feel better to know we'll be organized in the house when we all start work and school again.

We had a pretty great Christmas overall. I hope you all did too! Melanie got a pink Fender guitar from us, and Amanda got a digital camera for their main gifts. Ben got a Mongoose bike. Then, they each received other, smaller items. Ben got some more Bionicles, Legos and GI Joe's. The girls got clothes they like. I got some jammies, more cups that fit under my espresso machine and the stripey socks I like. I got Joe a cool shirt and three CD's: Colbie Callae (sp?), Kirk Franklin and another Christian one I can't remember (it has a heavy metal, rock sound). I tried to get him a variety of music to try on the new stereo.....

I've been a little pensive since yesterday, thinking about my family and my relationship with God. Maybe I'll write more about that later.....

Not only have I not been blogging, but I haven't been reading other blogs. It was so very hard to get on the computer when visiting relatives (and my husband couldn't get his computer to talk to my parent's wireless modem without reconfiguring the whole thing). I'm so unmotived to even get on the computer, but I'm going to blog again, and check up with my friends! Happy New Year!
