1. Legwarmers are BACK! And, since it’s been below zero for days on end around here, have the actual added benefit of keeping legs, you know, warm!
2. Yesterday, our family took the day off from life. We stayed in pj’s all day, we played board games, ate Swedish pancakes for lunch, had a Wii boxing tourny, procured “Up” from Redbox, took a Family Nap (in which only Marin and I slept…). David taught the girls how to play Skipbo while I worked on our
Christmas New Years cards. You know, quiet, relaxing things.
The past 2 weeks, we went so hard, and saw so many people/went to so many family gatherings, that this was just what we all needed. It was the perfect way to end Christmas Vacation. Sure, there were plenty of squabbles, pouting, tears, etc throughout the day, but there was also contentedness of being together, doing nothing.
We missed a ice skating birthday party, which would have been fun FOR SURE. David and I are learning, though, that sometimes we just need to STAY HOME.
And honestly? I wasn’t ready for the girls to go back to school today. (And now I’m off to sit in a corner, heavily petting Pollyanna.)
Oh, wait. I have one more thing!
3. I WON $100 Visa gift card from Swistle’s contest!!!!!! On December 31st, Year Of Our Lord 2009, I was discussing with a friend how I NEVER EVER win ANYTHING. And then I won!
With my “holiday bonus” (BooYah!) that I’m getting from work, and now this, my DSLR fund is growing quite nicely. I’ve nearly convinced David that we should just BUY a camera…
So tell me. What should I buy? Canon? Nikon? Model? Is knows nothings.
