Feeling Kinda Grinch-y

Because Christmas is coming
and there's much left to do
—and I don't want to miss out
like sad Cindy Lou Who—

I'm going to take a break from this blog;
Spend time with my family, my friends, and my dog;
Add sparkle and shine to my home and my tree;
Wrap up the gifts (maybe something for me!)

Before that bad Grinch steals my holiday cheer,
I'm off to find "Merry Christmas" and "Happy New Year".
I'll work hard to bring out my own inner Who
(because in Whoville they seem to know just what to do).

But first I'll wish
Happy Holidays!

to all of you (of course, that means to your families too),
and unless I come up with new things I must say,
I'll be back, right here, after Christmas Day.

I totally understand Tracy -- Christmas is crazy enough without having to throw in obligatory blogging in the mix. Have a happy Christmas and I can't wait to see what you come back with after your blogging vacation!

Yes, go spend time with your family and friends {and maybe a few minutes for yourself}, Tracy! Have a wonderful Christmas!

Happy Christmas, great decision.
I too am working hard to find my Christmas cheer this year. Too much time looking at the amazing decorations of others has left me feeling very behind the curve :) Some have 4 trees at home, I'm not sure I can find the energy for one!

I hear ya! I'm behind on everything this year--didn't get any cards sent out or outside lights strung--and keeping up with the blog doesn't help.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family, and we'll see you after the holidays! :-)
