In the meantime, the really big part of keeping our kids happy and carefree while we pray and fret and pray some more must be maintained. So as time creeps ever closer to the joyous celebration of the birth of our Lord, less and less time will be there fore other important things, like blogging.
We will spend time making merry, decorating trees, watching specials, cooking dinners (maybe a Medieval Feast this year focusing on a Christmas goose!), and generally being lazy and lounging and enjoying all that God has blessed us with. For though times have been tough for us, I'm aware of the fact that many others have been hit harder, and we have much to thank God for. No matter what happens come the first of the year, God has been good to us, and there are many in the world who would settle for a scrap of what I too often complain about.
In addition, we will try to have oodles of hours wiled away in such frivolous pursuits as keeping up with exercising, mastering Wii games meant to make us look stupid, and teaching our boys the gracious art of loosing, of which I am master.

Nope. For Catholics, it's only the beginning.
So I'll be around, just not much. In case we miss each other, check by when you can, I'll do the same, and have a Happy Advent and wonderful and blessed Christmas season.
