I always go through blog withdrawal when other blogs I follow go through a hiatus. It's been a week since I've posted! Things have been busy in Kansas City. Last week was full of sales meetings, the weekend involved a trip to Des Moines to do some Christmas shopping with my mom, sister and sister-in-law and yesterday I had a sick boy at home. When he was feeling a little better we made a Christmas chain to count down the 41 days until Christmas. Rich Jr. and I used to make one every year as kids and it's something I want my kids to do too. It feels good to be back to blogging!
