Christmas, Family

The most wonderful time of the year?

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 timeโ€ฆ Since Dec.23 it has been non-stop events โ€ฆ and now today we are off again to Peterboro for the day. It is too much. I donโ€™t recall the last time a holiday was actually relaxing.

That saidโ€ฆ 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 Sabresโ€™ jersey, a Sabresโ€™ 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 46โ€ณ LCD TV (and subsequently the HD Cablebox upgradeโ€ฆ) So we have certainly done our part for the economy. ๐Ÿ˜› I got B. an Irish White Gold Ring, sadly it was a little small so weโ€™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 donโ€™t want to drive in the umโ€ฆ snow? Anywayโ€ฆ 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.โ€™s brother. It is a big production getting everything ready. I donโ€™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 Holdโ€™Em with Steveo taking everyoneโ€™s money. Lastly we went over to B.โ€™s sisterโ€™s for brunch. She has three young boys so, it is a mad house of energy.

I should get ready to go. More later.
