Its been a few days.
I wasn't sure if I would take a break for Christmas on this blog but it turns out I needed more then I knew. Not necessarily writing my blog but reading so many blogs and keeping up to date...its all out the window.
and it feels GREAT. taking time for myself.
I've rearranged my google reader to show which blogs I want to read every day and which ones I will reserve for weekends. I follow over 550 blogs so this is huge. And surprisingly there are only about 40 blogs that are near and dear enough to me to read every time they update.
2012 will be the year to streamline. my having a better and organized system in place it will let me take on the same number of projects but be able to to it in less time and still have time for myself.
I do love being busy though. its sort of a double edge sword. being busy makes me a better person. I feel more accomplished and I'd rather have too much going on then nothing. I don't know how people live without jobs or obligations and just float through days. not even possible for me.
Peter and I leave for Montreal tomorrow morning. I couldn't be more excited. I haven't taken a real 'vacation' since I went to France over a year and half ago. It will be amazing.
