The Guilty Post

I admit to only writing now because I'm feeling guilty for being a boring blogger for so long. Unfortunately, I haven't downloaded any fun pictures. Fortunately, I'm sure your imaginations can take care of it.

Our holidays have been, busy, productive, lazy, fun, painful, scary, silly, and any number of other adjectives.

Busy: I have been busy cleaning, taking decorations up and down, cleaning some more, playing games, cleaning, and watching movies. Maybe a few other activities were in there too.

Productive: Didn't I mention cleaning? The storage room looks neater.

Lazy: Um, that's what I wanted to be except I feel guilty when I'm lazy. I did manage to get up later than usual on a couple of occasions.

Fun: Riding my 4 wheeler in the snow and being pulled on a sled and playing the Wii and going out with Der were all fun.

Painful: My arm hurts from playing the Wii and my neck hurts maybe from doing those 10 situps (doing ten situps is a miracle so don't laugh).

Scary: It's never fun to hear that someone you love is headed to the emergency room. We are feeling thankful and blessed that Angela is home. Also, those orks in the Lord of the Rings movies are really scary -- just in a different way.

Silly: Tia's silly friends toilet papered our house, came back for pictures, and got caught. As a reward for being caught they got to hear Tia yelling "Aaron, You FOOL!" It was pretty funny. Thanks to Kayli, Connor, and later Tia for the cleanup. Those super high pieces of toilet paper will just have to disintegrate.

Other adjectives: Yummy, exhausting, beautiful, touching, etc. I hope your holidays can be described by many happy adjectives!

I was glad that your post didn't seem too guilty-ish so I didn't have to berate you on starting out the new year w/ those negative feelings. Thanks for sharing your 4-wheeler with everyone and may you quickly move on to 11 situps!

I liked your post - even if it was motivated by guilt!!! We'll have to swap Wii codes so the kids can send their funny messages sometime :)

oh, and we've also been watching the Lord of the Rings with the scary Orcs - it seems to be a holiday tradition for some reason that I can't quite figure out :) Tonight - the last one!

Sounds like a fun holiday season to me! Way to get out there and enjoy the snow, the bed, the exercise, and the fam. I say enjoy!

Nice way to sum up the holiday season. Isn't it a bit chilly for hooligans to be out TP-ing? Oh the energy of youth.
No guilt! I always find your blogs creative and inspiring.
