I went for a couple of good walks today and my hips are killing me. I think I am suffering the postponed effects of jogging for half an hour out of the blue yesterday. I actually had to put a pain relief rub on them so I am hoping they will be okay by tomorrow.
I have given a lot of thought to this and I have decided that I am going to have to cut back on my posting just until after the holidays. Normally I do two entries every day and I am going to have to half that for the next couple of weeks. I am starting to panic because I haven’t much time left to get organized for Christmas and I don’t want my exercise to end up being the thing that suffers. Along the same lines, I will do my best to keep up with my blog reading during this time, but I may have to let a little of that go too, so if you don’t hear from me please don’t think I’ve forgotten you.
This online community means so much to me and I would not have done nearly as well as I have over these past four months without all of the support and inspiration I receive from fellow bloggers. I am remaining committed to posting daily and will restart the twice daily entries as soon as the rush of the season is over. The same goes for the blog reading; if I fall behind I will make sure I catch up before too long.
In the meanwhile, I do have one fun Christmasy thing for everyone… I was reading a post over at The Crazy Woman Inside Me and started thinking that it might be fun to expand on an idea of hers and invite my readers to share in the comments section of this post the strangest gift they have ever received (or given). It's the time of year when presents are on the minds of many and I thought it might be interesting to hear about what oddities have been exchanged in past Christmases, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
For me, I would have to go with the moon property my father gave me one year. No word of a lie: I can build a house on Earth’s only natural satellite. It would have been nice if he had also financed the rocket ship required to get there, but what are you going to do?
