It's called biting off more than you can chew!

My poor old blog has been very neglected lately. I really feel like I am letting my loyal readers and friends down. It's not that I don't have anything to write about - I have too much to write!

I feel like I need to backtrack. August and September were pretty good months. The summer was not too fierce. My kids and I enjoyed lots of sunny days at the beach, pools and in our garden. October was uneventful. I cannot recall anything much about it (Mee a Bee turned two). November was full-on as I embarked on my Christmas sewing/selling with a vengeance. It was a good month for Mee a Bee in terms of sales and great PR.

Now it's December and the year has passed so quickly it's not funny. My kids are driving me nuts as usual. I still have a mountain of sewing to do. I need to re-new my drivers licence. I can't remember the last time I balanced my chequebook. We leave for our trip next Saturday!

I really am crazy. I've hosted almost one Chatty Cafe a week for the past three months (yeah that's a lot of cakes). Tomorrow is our year-end party. I am planing to make a(nother) cake and devilled eggs. We have a birthday party to attend on Sunday. I still need to wrap the gift. Two parties in one weekend.

The gym! I've been going three or four times a week since July. That's been great. I am much trimmer (I think) and definitely much stronger and more energetic.

I am really looking forward to our holiday. I will be away from computers a lot of the time. I am going to really concentrate on relaxing with my family. I'll recharge my batteries for the coming year. 2010 is going to be a great year!!

One of my goals for the New Year is to blog more about the stuff that I love - crafting, cool finds on the Internet, shopping and living in Japan, mums in business. I hope you'll stick with me!

** I have written almost 1800 blog posts! My target might be 2010 for 2010.
I am sure I can commit to writing 231 quality posts over the next year!!
