The most wonderful time of the year?

The most wonderful time of the year? Does anyone really think so? The rushing around, the congestion, the expectations? Sure I like to see my friends and family but I also like and need some down time… Since Dec.23 it has been non-stop events … and now today we are off again to Peterboro for the day. It is too much. I don’t recall the last time a holiday was actually relaxing.

That said… it has been a fun few days. I did well for gifts this year scoring a netbook (my favourite toy in the world now), several threadless tees, a few sweater, a Sabres’ jersey, a Sabres’ stine, pixies DVD, a Muse CD and a bunch of chocolate. PHEW! Not to mention the boxing day shopping we did where we got a 46″ LCD TV (and subsequently the HD Cablebox upgrade…) So we have certainly done our part for the economy. 😛 I got B. an Irish White Gold Ring, sadly it was a little small so we’ll have to find a chance to get downtown to the jeweler. The Christmas events seemed to blur together. First was my parents with my family. We tried getting everyone to come up to Bolton but the older folks don’t want to drive in the um… snow? Anyway… it was great seeing my cousins, aunts and uncles, they are a decent gregarious bunch when together. Christmas day we had dinner here with my immediate family and B.’s brother. It is a big production getting everything ready. I don’t think everyone appreciates the time B. puts into the meal. It is hours and hours. So, thanks hon, it was delicious and very special. In the evening we played a little Texas Hold’Em with Steveo taking everyone’s money. Lastly we went over to B.’s sister’s for brunch. She has three young boys so, it is a mad house of energy.

I should get ready to go. More later.
