Isn’t it funny how long it takes to wrap presents – fold the paper just so and tie the ribbon just right – compared to how long it takes our friends and family to rip them open?

Christmas is over, but our family isn’t quite finished celebrating. Even though Mark and I both have to work four days this week, we have a week full of holidays left. Tomorrow is Mark’s birthday, my immediate (parents, brother and sister-in-law) family’s Christmas is on Friday, and my mom’s side of the family (aunt, uncle, cousins and lots of kids) will get together on Saturday.

In other words, the party isn’t over yet.

And so, I can’t promise regular posting this week. But I do promise to be back in full force next Monday, ready to kick of 2010 with lots of resolutions, movie reviews, celebrity lookalikes, parenting stories and easy-to-master recipes.

Until then, I hope you’ll share with us in the comments how your Christmas was and what your year-end plans are!
