Adieu Until the New...Year That Is

photo credit
Me, Myself and I want to wish everyone Happy Holidays.  We decided to take a break until the the new year.  Conversation went like this:
Me: It's Christmas, followed by the New Year.  We should take a break from blogging, spend extra time with Chipmunk.
I: Come on...Chipmunk's a big girl.  She doesn't need you.  This is blogging we're talking about -
Myself interrupts: I'm with Me.  I, you sound selfish...thought that was supposed to be my job.
I folds arms over chest and looks away from Me and Myself: Fine...but when we get back, we're working on balancing Me's need for family, Myself's need for writing and my need for blogging.  Got it?
Me whispers to Myself:  Nod and smile...just nod and smile.

So whether you're having a:
White Christmas at home
OR:
Santa fun time where it's warm and sunny
Have a wonderful time with family, friends, neighbors and coworkers.

Since we won't be back until the New Year, we just want to say one thing about ringing in 2012 with alcohol: When you start thinking that 1 plus 1 is 11, it may be time to stop sipping on the champagne.  :-P

Celebrating 2012 with a smile
***To all who've followed, lurked and laughed, commented and joked, THANK YOU...all of you, from the bottom of my heart <3***

  1. Merry Christmas, sweetie.

    For someone who made their blog debut this year, you were a smash hit. :)

    I'll post one more time tomorrow and take some time off as well.

    {{Hugs to the Chipmunk.}}
