I call it the traveling gunk. Stuffy head, sore throat, runny or stopped up nose, and the headache. The headache could be from the 28 or so kids running around, but *shrugs* who knows. Luckily, no one was throwing up this year.
In spite of the traveling gunk, the last week has been wonderful. We spent time with my mom and my hubby's family. (His is the full house, btw.) It was great because we don't get to see everyone very often. Hubby even went to the shooting range with all the guys. I passed on the girl's shopping trip because my head was close to exploding, and cause I'm really not a shopper. I managed to survive an hour at J.C. Penny with my sister to spend a gift card I got and still wanted to shoot myself by the time we left.
Now we are all safely home. It's time to reclaim my house from underneath all the stuff we brought home with us, grocery shop, and then sleep all day on Saturday. At least that's my plan.
Now for the good part.
I got EVERYTHING I wanted for Christmas. This might be a first. Here they are in no particular order.
|A digital recorder for all those great ideas I have while driving.|
|This is so so so cool! When I learn more about all that it does, I'll write a post just about this.|
|Kindle Touch--which I was happy with, but will be trading in for a Fire. *squee*|
|A four slice toaster. I'm so glad my hubby didn't listen to the advice he was getting on Facebook. Everyone said he shouldn't buy this for me, but I ASKED for it. That really means "I want this" in my language. :)|
