The holidays are officially over

The Second Lieutenant and the lovely Jenna have returned to their home and tomorrow we head back into the routine of work.  I really enjoyed the 2 long weekends we had for the holidays, not quite as good as the 2 weeks I normally save but none the less, a welcome break from the office.  Now, back to the stress of projects and money and bills.  It was nice to put aside all the routine and have a few days where I didn't worry about anything.

All things end, right?

Tonight we watched Iron Chef America and I stitched some on Miss Snow Fairy.  I am disappointed that the Steelers didn't get into the playoffs as a wild card.  But honestly, they didn't deserve to be in the playoffs so I'm not too disheartened.

Anyway, I do want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you who come by and come back to see what the ol' blog has to say.  I thank all of you who leave comments and I thank those who don't too.  I enjoy everything that you write and I hope that you find something worthwhile when you visit here.  I am grateful to all of you.  Many times over the past year I thought of deleting the blog.  But I am glad I didn't.

So, it's onward and upward to Monday.   I wish everyone a great week, I hope you stay warm cause it's freezing here in good ol' Upstate NY.

See ya later!

Hi Joanie! Happy New Year to you and your family!

Can I please have your email address - I still have to send you my free chart - maybe you can stitch it for next Christmas :)

Have a good week! And can't wait to see your progress on Snow Fairy. And it's freezing cold here in Michigan too! I hate it, but I suppose I should be used to it!

Happy New Year to you.

It's pretty cold here in NY City and Long Island too. Brrrrrrrrrrr.

I did not want to go back to work today. Sigh.

Is it Friday yet?

I hope the shock of going back to work wasn't too hard, lol. For me it's only next Monday but I'm not looking forward to it either, sigh. Have a good week anyway, with some stitching for the destressing.

western NY has been so cold and snowy that my hands hurt all the time even though I keep putting cream on them.

I hope there's not too much stress for you, Joanie, as you get back to work and the regular routine of life. That last week of the year is such a lazy one for me, I just love it. But there are some good things on my calender to look forward to, so I'm going to keep my mind on those. :D
