Wooo... I loved my break! I had so much more free time - I didn't realize how much time I spent just hanging around on the computer until I cut it out completely. Quite a bit of my "vacation" was spent shoveling snow, though, because the blizzard started early Wednesday morning and we got about 2 1/2 feet of snow (now that deserves its own separate post - pics included). I also got to go see Eragon, make my own Christmas stocking, read a few books, and just hang around with the family a lot. Not a super eventful vacation, but it was what I needed. I feel recharged again!
With that said... it's nice being back online again. Hoorah for the internet!
