It has been a busy, full week. I left Wednesday to visit my family for Christmas. While I love visiting, it also wears me out. My husband had to work Christmas eve this year and that's when my family celebrates so he came down to pick us up on Christmas morning to take us home. I hated not having him with us for Christmas eve but what can you do?
The kids are having a blast with their new stuff. My oldest got a new guitar amp and My youngest got a Nintendo DS lite. Both loved their gifts. They got some little stuff too.
I got some new weight gloves and a new mouse for my laptop. Then later on Christmas day my laptop died. The darn video card/on board video went out. Not something I can just run out and fix. Thankfully I'm not without, we are a techie family and have a few computers in the house. I did love my laptop though.
Saturday we took the kids out to the mall to spend their gift cards. That was busy but not as bad as I thought it would be.
Today I don't have a single plan other than to watch TV, surf the net and hopefully get a little reading time in. I never read well when it's my honey's day off and he's had the last two off and the next two.
The picture above is the last of the snow pictures I set aside for December. It's taken at our Riverfront park and it's the building that has a beautiful, working carousel.
So last week wasn't the greatest reading weeks for me but now that Christmas is over I hope to get more read.
