I was planning on participating in another Creepmas countdown this year, and then I got hit with my THIRD big illness of the season so far... and I ran out of steam. It's really a shame, as this seems to be shaping up to be the year of the Krampus, one of the tried-and-true heroes of the Creepmas movement... but I just don't have it in me to participate right now. Heck we're on day 7 and I don't even have the pictures taken I had intended to!

I blogged every single day in October for that countdown, and I think it kind of ended up hurting my enjoyment of the Halloween season this year, in some ways. In others, I think it actually enhanced my celebration... so I don't know where I'm going with THAT... but this December I haven't sat down to blog once (until now) and I find myself filled with a great deal more Christmas spirit than I had imagined I could be.
|Like this guy.|
I took advantage of November this year, using it to dump over 20 posts from my other, now dead blog, and all I had to do there was tack on a quick explanation to beginning of each one, and program the auto-posting feature Blogger's got going on, and voila! I haven't really posted any NEW new content since October! And I feel great!
|My heart's grown three sizes! And not due to cholesterol (although that probably helped).|
SO what I'm getting at is this: I had plans. Not big plans, but plans for December. But I'm letting them go. I'm still recuperating from an illness, and I'm kicking off a vacation home with my family this week, so... we'll see what happens. But I feel like I'm probably taking a break until the New Year hits. I think I need it kind of.
I need to come back fresh to this blog and feel like I have something new to say, not just dump meaningless content in every day. I want to start talking about the stuff I'm finding at Goodwill in a new way as well. So I'm not just going: "Hey lookit what I found! Neat right?" Over and over, lather-rinse-repeat.
|I just really wanted another Bill Murray reference... but you gotta admit how eerily well this fits.|
So unless something exciting comes up (I may hop on here to review Krampus, or the Force Awakens, when I See them, or maybe not!) I will see you in January dear readers! I have a LOT of Geeky Goodwill finds from 2015 to catch up when that comes along, so I'll be getting pretty busy. Until then, Happy Hunting!
