Merry Christmas!  
A very Merry Christmas to those who celebrate it, and for one and all... I hope you've had today off, one way or another!

I was up until 2 a.m. getting things ready for today, and it all worked out in the end. I didn't get to watch While You Were Sleeping while wrapping presents (my tradition as of the last several years), but stuff DID get wrapped, and I got everything in the stockings. Lots of variety there, which means lots of time apportioning things to each person. :O

There was also the Christmas Eve dash to Rite Aid to get a few more things for my son, since he did not have enough compared to his sister. It was 20 minutes before closing, but I made it in and out!

We got the tree in the house yesterday and decorated late yesterday afternoon, and I finished putting up outdoor lights the day before. Kind of going down to the wire on some of this, but it was a tough year.

I hope all of you are enjoying the holidays and spending time with friends and family. Thanks for being part of my life here at LJ, and for entertaining/commiserating/celebrating with me over the past year. ♥

Thank you for the lovely v-gift too!

We just got back from visiting family, kind of a four-day blackout (two of the days are just driving). Now I'm hoping to enjoy some of the remaining time at home before going back to work next week. It'll all be much too soon!

It was a good Christmas, and a good trip up north. No major weather surprises.

Our oldest is having fun at college, and was already plenty independent before she left-- so this was not as big a change for her as for some. I still wish she were closer, though. It's about 9 1/2 hours of driving (best case) from our house to her dorm!
