I am amazed at how much I thought I would get done, and how much *actually* got done. Funnily enough, the two don't quite match.
The husband is recovering nicely from his gallbladder surgery, the kids made it through without causing each other too much bodily harm, and I got a lot of reading and relaxing accomplished - all in all, I suppose it was a nice break.
I'm sorry to say that for some friends, break wasn't so wonderful - Kelly's dad has had surgery, as has Shamae. I will be keeping them both in my prayers.
Happy 2010 to one and all; here's hoping for a year of good health and prosperity for everyone!
