Much Needed Break

With my last blog entry having been over two weeks ago, it appears I slipped off the edge of blog-land. Truth is I haven't fallen off anything, I haven't been ill, my fingers type fine, and all faculties are in working order. We haven't been overly busy or stuck in a snow storm like some poor folks. We've simply been enjoying the holiday break with family and catching up on some much needed rest. I guess I needed a break because I feel more refreshed and ready to hop back on the blog wagon. Amidst the respite, however, life carried on; the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Jimmy's bathroom is mostly complete,
now my bathroom is in surgery.
I lost my sink yesterday...

But the new couch arrived!
We took the tree down the day after
Christmas to accommodate.

My vanity came too.

The VCR died just as we loaded the movie
Inception, so we pulled the
DVD player from downstairs.
It delayed our start but it was worth the wait.
(Great movie but pay close attention
or you won't understand a thing.)

Jimmy bought a Blu ray to replace the DVD player.
I'm quite sure this piece of equipment is over my head.
I don't want anything to do with it yet.
(It's the black thing in between the two silver things.)

All in all we had a wonderful time celebrating the Prince of Peace's birth. So, I'm curious, what did you do over your Christmas break?

So nice to take a break, huh? Our kids came home for a few days, and then Don's mom landed back in the hospital so that has complicated our break.

Somehow we managed to buy a new car the other day (first ever brand-new one for us & did it to commemorate our 35th anniv.), but I haven't had time to do anything with the Kindle (yay!) Don got me for Christmas. Very ready for things to slow down a bit more...

Happy New Year!!
