I have survived another year, if not conquered it. I came through the Christmas madness relatively unscathed save a few panic attacks that most people didn't even notice.
My daughter had an awesome Christmas, was very happy with her gifts and was happy to see her granparents, aunt, and great-aunt. This year she didn't dwell as much on missng her cousins and other aunt and only uncle, so it was nice. She still has a few more days off of school which is good, because she still hasn't done her homework. She has dad's homework philosophy not mom's! I always liked to get mine done as soon as it was assigned so that I wouldn't have to worry about it!
Yesterday a friend and I went to the "new" IKEA up near Detroit and had a blast. I dropped about a hundred bucks there and at least a few pounds from all the walking. I got a bunch of totes and linen zippered boxes to do some organizing around the house. I wish I could go again and remodel my whole house!
Today was rough because dh's PC decided to take a puke and is being nursed back to health with a few trasnplants as I type. Hopefully it will be better than ever. I finally ordered my very own first new computer and am impatiently awaiting for it to be mailed. I'm hoping his is fixed and zooming before mine gets here! I don't wanna share my new toy!
This year almost everybody we know cooperated with our no-gift-exchange Christmas policy. Of course, we let people buy for dd because she is only 6, but only one set of family didn't cooperate. I'm grateful for the gifts, undoubtedly, but it's frustrating that some can't get their mind around how important our non-gift-exchange tradition is to us. *sigh*
Cold cold cold hear tonight. I've been up playing World Of Warcraft and probably will ring in the new year the same way tomorrow. Here's hoping 2008 is more peaceful than 2007!
