Sometimes I'm a Little Slow...

...and then I get hit in the face.  Like tonight.  As you know I've been in a crap-tacular mood recently.  As I was having a meltdown tonight (after opening one too many Christmas cards with adorable children pictures and stories in them -- I'm sorry, but I really don't care that your son's favorite letter right now is N) it dawned on me...we should be celebrating baby's first Christmas and sending out Christmas cards with a happy family of 3 photo attached.  Should be...but not. 

I'm taking a little blogging break for the holidays.  We'll be on the road, but I will be reading your blogs when I can, though may not comment much.  Lots of holiday BFPs out there in blog land.  I'm very happy for each and every one of you who are celebrating one of these (and am thinking of those of you who aren't). 

I'll pick back up on the blogging challenge after the holidays too...I guess it will be the 30 day blog challenge that took 60 days to complete.  

Merry Christmas to each of you and your families!


  1. Happy Holidays to you, JJ. Those darn cutesy Christmas cards add so much salt to our wounds. I hope you can put them all away (or throw them away if you dare) and focus on getting through the Holidays with great amounts of good self-care.
    Hugs to you from Canada.

  2. Those Christmas card photos are never easy. I hang them, but in a place behind the front door that I almost always have my back to!

    Have a wonderful holiday and enjoy your break!

  3. Talk about a slap in the face, ugh. I usually throw them away to be honest. Awful I know, but I just can't handle looking at them and being reminded how unfair and cruel life can be at times.

    Happy Holidays and wishing you all the best in 2012!
