It seems that every year it takes FOREVER for Christmas to get here then POOF it's the day after. Right now I am enjoying a hot cup of coffee while the tree twinkles and Lil O is serenading me with her Princess Vanity, which isn't a vanity after all, it's a piano. Lucky US! Who wouldn't want to be serenaded to Princess music at 7 AM?!?!??! Dare I ask that?
I had a wonderful Christmas with my family this year. It really is a blessing to just be together and socialize. The past couple of years we have started a tradition where my mamaw and great aunt come over Christmas morning to see what Santa brought and to open presents together. I will fix breakfast and we will just sit around in our pj's and let the kids play.
The kids are loving Rock Band! I am tooo. I've tried the drums a few times. It's harder than it looks I admit. I went in thinking, "Oh, that's easy! I can do that!" Yeah, well I was wrong. I think with some practice when NO ONE is home and I can jam out that I will become a Rock Band PRO! That will have to be a Week in Review video for you!
There goes that Princess Vanity again!!!!!! Damn you Santa. Oh wait, I helped Santa with that one. Hmmm, those were new AA batteries so I am screwed!!!!!!
H & B2 will be heading to New Jersey today with their dad to visit with their in-laws. I hope they have a safe adventure! I will miss them like crazy. They will be home next week. (So, I can jam out to Rock Band without an audience.) I'm going to use their absence as a time to clean out their closets and start my YEARLY January Goodwill pile. Every year after Christmas I get this urge to clean and get rid of useless things that have accumulated. I can do it without them looking over my shoulder. Hey, they haven't missed anything so far over the past several years in my yearly purge.
I leave you with this one question and I expect you to answer it if you're taking the time to read this blog.
What will you miss most since Christmas is over?
