I hope everyone had a merry one, we had the son and granddaughter here for another bit of Christmas, I assume sometime the daughter will send her presents. She's in the field at the moment, and I'm sure has not had time to do anything.

I've wrapped the last few gifts (yes, there's always just one more thing I buy for someone this time of year) and since it's now officially Christmas, I should get to bed.

I was supposed to be cooking dinner, now I guess we're going over to the aunt's to eat. Once again, blindsided. I really wish the husband would learn to call when this happens, I bought ham and was all ready to cook dinner for us. Not sure what I'm going to do now. I work Mon and Tues so I guess I could just hold onto the ham until Wed. The son and granddaughter are supposed to be here then for more Christmas.

Anyway, I do have a coffee cake to cook in the morning, so I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

So, I have survived another Christmas!

And although I did not receive that many presents (a couple of DVDs, a cd, earrings and chocolate from the husband), I am now playing with my new Kindle, waiting for it to load my already bought and free books! I will be able to totally ignore everyone at work tomorrow and read!

We did go over to the relatives and even that was nice, no one talked conspiracy theories or anything like that.

So even though it is snowy and cold and I have to work tomorrow, dammit!, I think today was very nice. And calm.

And sometime this week, we will have the son and soon-to-be ex-daughter-in-law for some more Christmas, although I'm thinking that THAT will not be so calm! But I will enjoy the granddaughter!

Hope everyone enjoyed their day and that your night is peaceful!

I now have the granddaughter's presents wrapped. And the son's throw halfway cut and tied. And all the extra gifts are under the table, I just need to buy Santa bags to put them all in and then give them to their mom next week so she can put them under their tree.

I'm so glad I'm done, the customers in wm are going crazy looking for stuff we haven't had in ages.

And oh yeah, I bought some dvd's for the husband... online! All the seasons of Farscape and all the seasons of Kung Fu. The first series.

Nope, not buying anything else...

I have now wrapped the daughter and daughter-in-law's presents.

That's all.

Just them.

And I'm already putting presents on the floor because they won't fit under the tree. Which is sitting on the coffee table.

I'll have to post a picture when I get the other three people done...

So, the tree is up and decorated, the eggs are cooked and ready to be made into deviled eggs, the brownies are done and the fudge topping is on them, and I've vacuumed and dusted. Now I'm waiting for the son and granddaughter to show up. And later I'll do my cheesy potatoes. Then it'll be off to the deer hunters camp for a fish fry.

Haven't done this much in a long time!

And it's cold! But sunny, so we have that at least... hope the guys got lots of deer, there are way too many around here...

Edit:

Not a fish fry this year, Mike grilled STEAK! Wonderful juicy tender steak! It was wonderful and I'm paying for it today, the tummy didn't like it. Stupid stomach anyway. And as of last night, still no deer, hope they got some today...

Computer!

I have been very bad (or good, depending on how you look at it) and bought a laptop for my Mom. Her computer is older than God, well, maybe not that old, but it's at least... I'm thinking... at least 10 years old, maybe little older. So, yes, it's slower than mud, doesn't work really well and it's in the basement of their house in WI and it's COLD down there.

So, Dell had a deal, and if I pay it off in 6 mons, no interest. And after the first of the year, that'll be easy to do. She doesn't need much but it would be nice if she could get on and use Skype to talk to Becca. And she used to use the one in the basement more, but it's so slow...

All I need is one more toy for the grandkid, and my Christmas shopping is done. And it was actually mostly done back in Sept, except for the toy... And it gives me just a little more time to buy for my co-workers kids...

And I'm having it sent to her directly, won't she be surprised!

Talked to the daughter last night, and now, there's a good chance that she'll be home for Christmas!

Timmy is graduating from Marine boot camp the 18th of Dec and, as Becca says, we can't leave Dad home alone for Christmas.

So, instead of me going to Okinawa in Dec, she's going to come home, go to Tim's graduation, be here for Christmas, and then go back.

We're thinking 25th wedding anniversary in Okinawa... Next Feb!

And an early Merry Christmas to everyone out there!

Stay warm (or cool, depending on where you are) and safe!

And you know that corp's are thinking, 'get those people out and buying' when you get at least two or three coupons of some sort or another every single day! JCPenney's has sent me everything from money off to free shipping for this month. But how many do I really need? I've already gotten my presents...
