hi wonderful friends! welcome to the new year at Not A Mom!
That being said, blogging world was covered up with Christmas posts and I knew my heart just wasn't in it this year. I hate making recommendations for anyone but honestly, anyone struggling with depression especially around the holidays...UNPLUG. I had the two weeks off from work and so did Tripp, minus some wrestling matches so it was nice just to be with him and enjoy relaxing together. We took more naps than ever [well he played video games and I napped], cleaned our house and started the first season of Dexter.
My mom had surgery the Monday before Christmas so that occupied some time as well. We had two get together's with Tripp's fam and one with mine. Christmas day in Alabama was full of tornado warnings which took my mind off of missing my brother, for sure ha. Unfortunately, I really didn't even take any pictures to share with y'all over the holiday break. But I am glad to be BACK and I have SO much planned for 2016. Tripp and I declared this year the year of the OTIS's and I love that I can take y'all with me on this journey.
