(In case you were wondering, no, I still cannot get over the snow we had a couple of weeks ago. Or the fact that it was 75 degrees on Christmas.)

Christmas was amazing this year. As per tradition, we spent Christmas Eve with my in laws and Christmas day with my parents. I got too many fabulous gifts and feel very spoiled. I think everyone liked what we got them as well, especially my in laws. We are treating them to a night at a swanky bed and breakfast in New Orleans, whenever they want to go. They are great people who don't have a lot of time for themselves, and they really deserve it. I didn't do as much crafting as I would have liked to, despite my original plans. My parents were happy as well with their gifts, straight off of their lists lol. It was strange celebrating Christmas at our house, after the years and years of doing it at my parents. There's something a little sad about not waking up in my childhood bed on Christmas morning.

This year we cooked the Christmas turkey. Not happening again for a long time. It was way too early in the morning to start dealing with a turkey that was still a little frozen. Granted, Husband did most of the work, but I will never stick my hand or even look inside of a turkey again. It's almost enough to make me become a vegetarian.

This morning I had to go to the AT & T "fix it" center to get a new phone. I have a BlackJack II from Samsung, and the center button in the middle of the wheel stopped working last night. I prepared myself for a long wait, but I was out of there in 20 minutes with a new phone, having to pay nothing! Warranties = awesome.

I have lots more to say, especially about the bonehead running for chairman of the Republican National Committee who decided it was a GOOD idea to send a CD to other members with a song titled "Obama the Magic Negro". People never cease to make me sigh with sadness. That post will have to wait until later...
