Holiday Hangover…

And it’s not over yet! We still have New Years!

Any one else gaining weight from all the holiday food? Or is it just me? I really could use an instant weight loss spell!

Otherwise we had a great Christmas! I got a camera that I love. And you know what that means…

More pictures of Bailey!

DSCN0005Bailey got a new toy for Christmas

DSCN0018He wouldn’t put his toy down all day

Except once…when Bailey came over to me and said, “Wizard won’t play with me.”


How can anyone resists? Even Wizard caved and pet Bailey!

In case anyone is wondering, I did take pictures of my kids and Wizard. I’m not that Bailey-crazy! Well, okay,  I am. But I also took lots of pics of the family (okay, sure they were holding Bailey, but it still counts!) I  just don’t post those pics of the kids or Wizard.

On another note, we saw two movies.  One was boring, but the second one IT’S COMPLICATED I loved! I laughed until I cried.

I even manged to read JR Wards LOVER AVENGED.

So how was your holiday? What have you been doing?

    My Christmas (and all the days leading up to it) was VERY busy – thus my prolonged absence. (sorry, really miss you guys … er … gals !!!
    Got a really great gift myself so I understand how Bailey feels ;)
    When all the fuss is over I hope to get back to my old schedule …
    Have a SAFE New Year everyone !!!

    My holiday was quiet and relaxful. I didn’t do much except visit family and eat. Why is there always so much food during the holidays?

    Have a good Monday.

    We had a really good Christmas too. Along with way to much food. I’m normally not a big eater, but I think I ate more in two days than I normally do in a week. :)

    Cookies? I haz them. Dozens. Someone please come eat them!

    We don’t do movies until they come out on video. I can’t wait for SHERLOCK!

    We had 14 inches of snow between Christmas Eve and Christmas. Lawyer Guy got his truck stuck. And…didn’t follow Rule #1, Rule #2, or Rule #3 when he went back on Saturday to wait for the wrecker. (Yes…it took that long! HUGE waiting list!) Wrecker got there about an hour too late. :( The truck is now at the mechanic’s. And I’m stuck because I don’t want to get The Only’s Mustang out on these roads.

    But I have cookies! And a Kindle! Did I mention cookies?

    Have a great day, witches!

    Hi Ban! Great to see you here! I’m happy that you got a present you love as much as Bailey loved his toy :-)

    Dru, the food almost seems to multiply while we’re sleeping! Glad to hear you had a nice, relaxing holiday. I had a couple days where I had quiet hours to read, which had become very rare so I appreciated it.

    Val, there’s just something about this time of year that compels us to eat :-)

    Oh Silver, that’s a LOT of snow!!! Do you usually get that much snow where you are? Incredible. I’m so sorry about LG’s truck. Not knowing the rules of snow, I’m not sure what he did or didn’t do, but it sounds like it’s costing you now! Being stuck at home is extremely frustrating.

    No more cookies! We have too much and I keep eating them! And you’re stuck there with all those cookies! What else can you do be eat them?

    We’ve really gotten into going out to the movies since the kids are grown. Let me know when you see SHERLOCK! That’s doing well at the movies, but it didn’t catch my interest. Maybe I’ll have to reconsider.

    I’ve been flexing my writing fingers by posting a middle-grade serial on my blog, “What Happened to the Sugar Plum Faerie?”
    I still have to write parts five and six, but I now know where the story is going, so that helps. I got a Netbook and a iPOD Nano–Yay!
    Got to quit surfing the blogosphere and write part 5! Ciao!
    Oh, and we only got 6 inches of snow, but it was our first recorded blizzard in history. :-)

    No. This is only like the fourth white Christmas in recorded history and the 14″ set a new one-day record.

    Snow driving rules:
    Rule #1 – Always be prepared for the worst.

    Rule #2 – Do not deviate from the plan. If you are tempted, remember Rule #1. If you aren’t prepared, leave it to the professionals!

    Rule #3 – Murphy is an optimist. If you ignore Rule #1 and Rule #2, bad things will happen.

    We’re looking at a new radiator and line because he got tired of waiting for the wrecker and let a well-meaning sod try to pull him out. After the tow rope came undone the first time, he let the guy try again. And then a third time, at which point the radiator line he’d fastened the towrope to pulled completely out, thus ruining the radiator. Yes. I was sitting there in Drover. Yes, I have a bloody lip and tongue. Yes, I am stuck here with dozens of cookies. HALP ME!!!!!!!

    Margaret, happy to hear you’re writing! I’ll check out your blog when I get a chance.

    So cool about the netbook and iPod. I love my iPod. Don’t have a netbook but a friend of mine does and really likes hers.

    That’s a lot of snow! Weird weather going on!

    Silver, we have to rescue you! Or at least show up with appletinis! Man, stuck at home with all those cookies…

    I’m so sorry about your car! Bad time of year for car repairs and now your stuck at home and probably trying not to say, “I told you so.”

    I didn’t think your area usually got that much snow. 14 inches, wow! You need a sled and dogs! Okay you have the dogs, now you just need the sled!

    I don’t blame you for not posting family pics. Other than my cat, I don’t post them either. I’m glad to read you got a camera you love. Bailey’s a great subject. =o)

    The holiday was nice here. Quiet, but that’s how I like it. Santa treated us all well, and I’m having fun with my new griddle. (Lame, perhaps, but I can’t wait to make pancakes.)

    It was nice. Did not have the urge to curse any of my in-laws and everyone got along…could not ask for more.

    Happy New Year!

    B.E., it’s not lame! I have been excited by many things for my kitchen!

    Cats are great picture subjects too :-)
