Children Tend to Be Sticky

This morning, my niece came over and we baked cookies.  And by "baked cookies," I mean that I baked cookies and she ended up sticky-fingered and watching Spongebob reruns in the living room... Being home is good for me. :)

Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

It's been a shamefully long time since I have blogged.  I'm not sure exactly why that is, either, because my life has been busy (but life is always busy) and I've had a lot of work to do (but I always have a lot of work to do).  I think that, maybe, I just haven't had much to say.  I've been a little sad.  Not over anything specific -- rather, it's been like a little shadow of discouragement has been trailing me.  And I just haven't felt like I had anything blog-worthy to say.  Quite a feat, actually, when this blog is mostly little nonsensical things anyway :)

Today is the first day of my Christmas break.  My grades were due yesterday and now -- I can breathe a little.  Hopefully, as I recharge and refresh, I will want to talk.
