the post-holiday report

It was a good Christmas. The kids woke me up about 7:30 and we checked out what Santa gave us until C got home about 8. We opened the presents, played with the toys, then C crashed and the rest of us went over to in-laws for breakfast and gifts and hanging out. Home for a while, where A watched "Air Buddies" and E listened to music and I just hung out. C woke up, we all went back to in-laws for dinner, then came back home and everyone else crashed and I watched "BSG: Razor" which was solid.

Everyone was pleased with presents. I especially liked my Nightmare Before Christmas shirt, Samuel R. Delany's About Writing, new jeans (yay!), a cool blue patterned shirt, a RoboReptile, and some fingerless gloves that C will knit for me. Also, C and I gave each other tickets to see Van Morrison Friday night, but that wasn't a surprise.

The rest of the week I'm off, so I'll hang with the kids and with the in-laws and cousins. I'll also be continuing to write and read and get stuff done around the house and what not. The holiday season has de-focused my brain and it's been skittering between topics and tasks and ideas. Now it's time to get focused again and get some things done!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Merry Kwanzaa, Happy Winter Solstice, and a Happy New Year! Oh year, Happy Festivus, too!
