Through some mystical alingment of the stars, this year will be nothing like last year's holidays. We are actually staying home in our new house on Christmas Eve and Day. All by ourselves. We're going to make dough ornaments and paint them on Christmas Eve, and since the kids will probably be upset that they don't get to eat them, I might even let them make real cookies too. The day care is closed until the new year, so tomorrow will be only the first day of many... I'm hoping to make it a good one, because I know they'll only go downhill.
After Christmas thie year, we'll be going to Darra's and leaving from there to go to vacation with my mom in Branson. I'm not as excited as I was last year. Last year we went to WI Dells and got free passes to all the indoor water parks. But I'll manage still. I suppose. The kids will be ecstatic to be around BOTH grandma's and the cousins too.
Today is Rob's last day of work. After the new year, he'll be starting classes for his nursing degree. It's going to be a long year. There are only 30 of them in the program, so the bookstore wouldn't order their books. We ahd to get them online, and they've been coming in dribs and drabs. I bet the UPS guy is hating us right now. I hope they all get here in time. And dont' get snowed on on our proch while we're gone.
Posting is going to be even more light around here probably even after the vacation is over though. They're starting to really moniter internet usage again. Plus, with another worker on maternity leave, I have more actual work to do now. Except, the times I don't - do you know how hard it is to sit at your desk in front of a computer with nothing to do, and NOT surf the internet? i've had to sit on my hands.
And lunch is almost over now, so I'm giong to gte a little surfing in before I have to go back to work again. Later
