Thoughts From The Day After

Hope you had a Merry Christmas. I thought about you all. Wondering how many of you actually were blog reading on Christmas Day.

I'd ask for a show of hands, but then that would just be wrong,wrong,wrong.

Our Christmas was good. We actually had three days of celebrating. We have three facets of our family and often each get their own day. This year it worked out pretty well except for the traveling in the rain in a pick up truck. Love the pick up, let's make no mistake about that, dear reader. It's the forgetting to arrange for proper stowing and storage of presents and overnight bags that were the issue. Um, yeah.

The Calm One earned a new nick name as a result of our storage and travel issues. I'll not share it. He's had a rough few days as it is. He's also decided that we'll not be traveling for Christmas again. As in EV-AH. Um, yeah. He's said that every year since our second child was born. Five years ago. You see how well that has worked out.

At any rate, soggy presents and clothing notwithstanding, a good time was had by all. The best part was reading the Christmas Story from Luke 2. Even though the kids were yawning and itching to get at those presents. I couldn't help but hope that this will become one of their favorite traditions too.

And as for all the finger numbing twist ties and the lack of batteries . . . that part I think I could do without.

I'm just sayin'.

And it's Friday! Are you wearing your festive RED today?


  1. I had the computer off the whole day. And no nervous twitches.

    Um, my red is undercover. :}

  2. No red today...but some computer time yesterday. Not enough...not enough. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. Um nothing red today, confession - I am still in my PJ's and they are not red. I did get on the computer yesterday, but not until we came home from the in-laws, so technically the day was over.

  4. No red today - didn't blog on Christmas - took your superhero test: Superman.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I enjoyed visiting yours!

  5. I admit. I was reading to see if anything was going on and to check out everyone's Christmas tales! We are actually doing our family get together this weekend.

    Hope you had a great Christmas.

  6. Sounds like a great Christmas... twisty ties and all (I could do without that part as well)!!!!


  7. Sorry about the soggy presents, but it does it sound like a good time was had, nonetheless!
