Well hello there. Happy New Year.
I am just now emerging from the madness that was December.
Shopping, cooking, cleaning, wrapping, and getting it all done at the last possible minute.
Meals and snacks merged, and became all day food.
Despite the stress and excess that overshadows Christmas, there was cherished family time.
And some much needed time away from work, school, and hockey.
I am desperately feeling the push and pull of time. The change in seasons and another new year brings on a familiar melancholy.
Pushing forward, while wistfully looking back.
