A Much Needed Break

My original intention was to get all the posts on the seven deadly sins up before Christmas but it looks like this will be impossible due to lack of time. Michaela has been out of school all week due to a terrible stomach bug and I am packing stuff for the move. It's hectic around here.

Well, I might not be able to post about the seven deadly ones right now but I'm sure getting plenty of opportunity to conquer them! Sorry about the delay. I'll tackle the remaining sins after things settle down a bit around here.

I hope everyone is having a blessed Advent!

    Merry Christmas. Stop and smell the ro.. err, coffee every once in a while.

  4. Your new place looks lovely! So peaceful. Moving takes a lot of time - do what you need to do.

    Hope Michaela is better soon.

  8. Merry Christmas! When do you move into your new home? This is happening fast, but when the Lord decides to give us something, He doesn't waste any time. I hope Michaela recovers quickly and doesn't pass the bug off to you and your husband.

  12. Hi Barb,
    The closing is Dec. 30th so we will be moving sometime in January. We are excited!

    Michaela felt much better Friday. I was glad she went to school because my elderly dog, Zeb, died Friday and it would have been too much for her. You know how it is because you love dogs too and understand how difficult it is when they die.
    God bless you, Barb :)

  16. It was 8 years ago when Max died and I was heartbroken!! We did get a new dog quickly because I didn't want my husband to get used to the idea of a house without a dog... and liking it! Now my Toby is 8 years old and is starting to slow down a bit. I pray he has many more years with us!!

  17. I hope Toby is with you for a long time, Noreen :) Aren't dogs sweet? I don't think I've met a dog I haven't liked! We still have our puppy but I miss Zeb. He was with us for 14 years and it's hard not having him around. No, I wouldn't want my husband to get used to a house without dogs either...lol (your comment made me smile).

    Merry Christmas. May the Lord bless you and your family. May the Virgin Mary share her joy with you and help you to approach the mystery of the birth of the Son of God. You enjoy the holidays. Merry Christmas.

    Feliz Navidad. Que el Señor te bendiga a ti y a tu familia. Que la Virgen María comparta su alegría contigo y te ayude a acercarte al misterio del nacimiento del Hijo de Dios. Que disfrutes de las fiestas. Feliz Navidad.

  32. Happy New Year, Mary! I know you are on a much needed blog break and in the midst of a move, but I hope you'll pop over to my blog when you get a minute. I chose your blog for a Liebster award. It's for deserving blogs which have fewer than 200 followers.

    It seems to me that you must have at least 1000 followers, but I used the count on your Google widget.

    If you have time (!), you can pass the award on to five other bloggers.

    Anyway, I miss you like everyone else, but hope you are enjoying your time away, and will soon be settled in your adorable new home.

    Love to you,
    Patricia
