Where'd we all go?

It seems I'm not the only one failing to keep up with the blog these days. I'm missing the blogs I read on a regular basis. 70% of them are not updating.
I know I can't complain because I'm just as bad.
Life just seems to be droning on for me. Not much new and exciting stuff going on.
Work has been particularly stressful the last 6 or 7 months. I mean, we have brand new staff who have only worked here for a couple months complaining of burnout, never mind that they are part timers. It's been a stressful go for those of us who are full time. There was a period of about 6 weeks that we were short staffed. I earned an extra 10 days of vacation time during that time because of working over time hours. I just need a break from it. The stress I mean.
We're hoping to use the extra vacation time to go away somewhere over March break. Not sure where, but hoping tropical. We'll have to see how money is. No solid plans at this time. Also will see how taxes go, hoping not to owe anything this year but not likely.
I'm starting to wish I had got a hot tub instead of a pool, because I would love to just soak in a hot tub after work each evening.
Maybe we'll work towards adding a hot tub to our back yard oasis. It's a huge expense though as we'd have to expand our electrical panel in order to support a tub.
Maybe in the distant future.

Yeah, lots of people no longer blog. I still do.

I'd love to go away somewhere.

Your work sounds insanely busy. Will you get the chance to use those extra 10 days?

One of my New Years resolutions is to blog more. I've posted twice this month so I'm already doing better! I think it was Halloween that I last posted before Jsnuary.

things have fallen off a bit, huh? I just caught up--so glad to hear your mom is ok!
