All I can say . . . is, clearly, I needed a vacation.
A little break.
Jenny and Jo-Jo say it best.
It's the Dog Days of post-holiday madness.
Hope you're enjoying some "downtime," too!

:-) now all I want to do is take a nap. Dogs do have the right idea!

You were going in many directions at one time, so the downtime must feel heavenly. Enjoy it!!

I should have blogged today but I didn't. And I didn't send out a Ten on Tuesday email - even though I had a topic all picked out. I'm a blogging slacker these days but I'm kind of enjoying it.

The week between Christmas and New Year's always feels like a cross between suspended animation and a vacation to me.

Dogs definitely have the right idea--they play hard and know when to rest!

Here's to a little more rest before we jump into 2014. Cheers my friend and here's to a great year ahead!

Glad you got some down time.
Wishing you and everyone in your family a Happy and Blessed New Year!
