It's over! Back to work! Take down the trees! Stop eating all that crap! Focus on the new year!
LoL. Christmas was great. I was a little (okay, a lot) gassy.... but besides that, I enjoyed myself. My mom and dad got me a very nice bookshelf that hangs on the wall, which I really wanted, and a sleigh style nightstand, which I also really wanted, both from Pottery Barn. My sister bought me the Deluxe Turntable Edition of Scrabble, and I am SO thrilled about that. I can't wait to play it. Husband got lots of great gifts, including a new guitar stand, a steel slide, and a ukulele.
Just this morning I realized that I still haven't opened my 'stocking' from DH. He was extremely cranky when I made him get up at 10:45 on Christmas so that we wouldn't be late to my parents. So I just sidestepped that altogether.
Mom had AWESOME food, meatballs, tortellini pasta salad, salmon spread, mashed potatoes, BBQ Ribs, Broccoli and Cheese Casserole, Corn Casserole, Wheat Rolls, Cheese and Crackers with Sausage, Chicken Taquitos, Turkey, etc. It was fabulous (that was two meals, not all one)
We watched Talledega Nights and the Jack Johnson Weekend at the Greek DVD that Evan bought me. What was really cool? At the end of the Jack Johnson DVD, it said that he recorded it August 19th and 20th 2005, which was the dates of our overnight wedding reception. What's really cool is that when we got married In Vancouver, he was there performing THE NIGHT that we flew out, so we couldn't go see him. I kept telling Evan that I was waiting for them to check into our hotel or see them out and about. So right after playing in Vancouver, while we flew home for our wedding reception, they flew to Berkley to film that DVD and perform at the Greek. How cool is that?
So last night Husband put together the nightstand for me. I did some surfing online and then went to bed after watching Pleasantville on cable. All is well. How was your Christmas?
