So, the presents are all opened and the Christmas leftovers are all eaten and it is back to the old grindstone. It was fabulous having the 5 days off. Sorta makes you want to quit your job.
We spent the weekend at my sister's new condo. Of course, due to the fact that my Christmas shopping was abruptly cut short, I only had a few things purchased for my sister. Those items were left on the kitchen counter 2 1/2 hours from our final destination. Somewhere between these lame shots of Christmas morning and Friday when we left, I also
lost misplaced my camera.

Add that, to the fact, that my mother decided, three days before Christmas, to buy herself a new flat screen TV. The exact same TV I'd purchased the week before as her Christmas present from my sister and I. EVEN THOUGH MY SISTER TOLD HER BEFORE SHE BOUGHT IT THAT WE WERE GIVING IT TO HER FOR CHRISTMAS!!!! (And you guys thought I was just being a little emotional about her.)
Barbs cooked a fabulous brisket and dinner and my oldest brother stopped by for a visit. (No pictures, due to the lost camera and Barbs' camera is broken. ) We also got to visit with my niece and her boyfriend and my pilot nephew. The kids are growing up and I just don't see them too much anymore.
Damn, I feel old.
We did bring the Wii up to Barbs' and hooked it up. My sister and I went through all the games and tried them out. We were laughing like school girls until 4 am. There is a air hockey game on the Wii Play disc that had us in hysterics because we are both such spazzes we kept hitting the puck in our own goal. After playing that a few thousand times (and laughing so hard we woke up Salty, sleeping on the couch) we started playing a goat racing game. Holy crap, we were off on another fit of laughing and we could not stop. I haven't laughed that hard in such a long time. I am sure my mother and husband thought we'd lost our minds. And we both were stone sober.
Before we left on Sunday, we went out and got Barbs a new camera and I will be returning the computer stuff (which she also bought before Christmas) and the TV.
Now, if I can just get Salty to reconnect the Wii at home, I'll be all set.
Anyone up for a Wii discussion???
