Today is November, 30 – which marks the end of NaBloPoMo. I really enjoyed NaBloPoMo again and I almost kind of sad that it’s over. There are still some posts sitting in my draft folder, but don’t you worry, those posts will be finished and published some time in the near future.
I guess, it’s kind of a good sign that the end of the month, and therefore the end of NaBloPoMo, kind of snuck up on me this time and almost came as a little bit of a surprise.
Here’s to all the great people who persevered and stuck to blogging every single day for the month of November. Thanks for reading and commenting throughout the month. I really appreciated each and every one of you.
Only 31 more days and the 2009 is over and done with as well. This year went by in a snap of a finger. I can’t believe how fast the months flew by.
J and I won’t be going to Germany for Christmas and it makes me a bit sad not to be able to spend Christmas with my family and especially little Greta. I really had thought (and planned all year in my head) that we would fly to Germany for Christmas. I thought we would go to the Christmas markets and have hot chocolate and Belgian waffles. I thought we would have some snow and take some long walks through the winter landscape. I thought I would help my Dad set up the Christmas tree and decorate it on the morning of Christmas Eve.
It’s was kind of a damper to realize that all this isn’t going to happen this year.
I think we just had to face the facts and acknowledge that various reasons argue for postponing our trip for another few months, the biggest reason being the arrival of our new nephew in March and a tentatively planned baptism some time in late spring.
It would be impossible – financially and in regards to vacation days – to go now and in the spring, especially considering that I had just been to Germany in September (for only 10 days, mind you). It’s still kind of hard to accept for me, because I am such a family person.
What are your plans for Christmas?
