Microblog Mondays: Is This What Life is REALLY Like?

Our dear Mel over at Stirrup Queens has begun a blog phenomenon... as she frequently does. 

Microblog Mondays. Writing in your own space. Something short and sweet. But it's meant to take back our bloggy space and call it our own. I am going to try to do this periodically. Life's hectic. So we'll see how long this lasts.

It's been awhile since I wrote. Life sort of takes over, I suppose. Between
  • Petite's Girl Guides,
  • her Gymnastics,
  • physio twice a week for the bum knee that I messed up while in California this past summer,
  • pool and backyard renovations (my my, but it looks GORGEOUS for next summer!),
  • having had our Thanksgiving at our house (14 people in attendance!),
  • celebrating my stepdaughter's 21st birthday,
  • celebrating Petite's first loose tooth and visit from the Tooth Fairy,
  • preparations for Christmas,
  • fostering cats for the Humane Society,
  • working like crazy (as always),
  • general house upkeep (as much as possible!)
  • and all the rest... well, I'm plum tuckered out.
I need a breather. But we're well into the Christmas rush now. I haven't done a card yet! I haven't gotten Petite's Christmas pics with Santa yet! I haven't baked my cookies yet! and... and... and... !!!!

I think wine is in order. Copious amounts of it! Do you think I could make a wine advent calendar for the adults in the house? I like that idea! Then again, it might not be conducive to actually getting to work on time... Ah, the perils of adulthood!
