My brain’s Christmas vacation

As a work-from-home mom, I always love holiday breaks ‘cause I don’t have to get up and rush around from early morning ‘til late night taking care of little people. Yes, it’s difficult to get work accomplished, but I like the freedom of my days and the freedom of my brain.

I haven’t written many personal posts because my brain automatically takes a break when the vacations roll around. It’s as if I go into immediate vacation/relax mode and I can’t come up with any creative, entertaining or fact-filled posts about what my children are up to. So as Christmas draws closer, this year ends and another begins I’ll be mostly chilling and relaxing. I’m happy to have the special time with my children and even more time to myself as my little ones spend time with their big sister and visit their father.

This weekend I’ll enjoy watching them play with their gifts and try to relish in each wonderful moment despite the noise that I know will overtake my eardrums. The noisy toys, the loud talking, the rambunctious laughter… but it’s the pure joy that I’ll focus on. While I do that my brain will be gearing up for another year of writing as I make my New Year commitment to meet some personal writing goals.

How’s your regular posting going? Are you taking a vacation or plugging away?



  1. I also wish to take a break especially that my kids are also on winter school break. Though, I would have to do what needs to be done.

    By the way, would you like to join my blog's giveaway at Stay at Home Blessings? It will end January 5 so you still have time to enjoy the Christmas vacation.

    Have a nice day.

  2. Since the weather has been cold and wet for the past couple weeks I usually make it home at a decent time and write a post while I'm watching TV or awaiting to fall asleep, if I have no company.

    Winter has always brought me a writing muse not experienced during the other seasons.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    No vacation for me. Only travels will be on NYE and the following day to New Orleans to watch the Saints/Panthers game.


What's up men & women of my world! I am all a-giggle that you decided to comment. You're what make this world go 'round... ya know? This "world." I love you! Smooches. :-)
