a long december

Whew, it’s already the last day of 2006. We had a really lovely Christmas with Husband to Be’s family, a very Norman Rockwell holiday, in the nicest way possible. Lots of food, lots of kids, lots of loot. His parents totally spoil us. Mild weather, instead of snow, which was a little disappointing, but it was nice not to be freezing.

Lemon-berry slush and cheesy tater tots at Sonic on the way home, and then our private gift exchange.

Except for one tiring trip to the crowded mall to return gifts and check out a few post-Christmas sales, it’s been a very relaxing end of the year, with more eating, drinks with friends, watching football (where one of my alma maters beat the other), starting off the day right with some Animaniacs, and trying out friend M’s latest obsession, Guitar Hero. One friend’s gotten his post-school job all lined up, and another just got engaged, so good news all around.

The holidays and being sick have taken a little toll on my energy level, so I’m summoning together all my energy for tonight’s party, which promises to be big and boisterous. We’re throwing sleeping bags in our car in case we need to spend the night, and that’s always a good sign.

Some end of year thoughts later.
