Back from our Christmas holidays and I hope everybody had a great time with their loved ones. I cannot believe I haven't been blogging for a whole six days. Time was flying and I did miss it but against all odds I was too busy to sit down and write a post inbetween.
We drove seven hours last Thursday to go see the in-laws and we had a lovely couple of days there. Santa came early and we had our nieces and nephews unwrap the presents we had bought for them. They all still believe in Santa Clause and it was brilliant to see their big eyes as they rushed to check if they could get a glimpse of Santa escaping through the fireplace. Some great Christmas memories surfaced and stories were told by the fireplace.
On Sunday we drove another six hours through snow and ice to get to my parents where we also had a lovely Christmas. A lot of good things have happened and we're really happy and also anxious to move into the next year.
Random thoughts over the past few days:
*My husband was offered a promotion which means he will not be home for the biggest part of the week come February, so these were bittersweet news. Of course I was happy for him so he gets to do what he loves most and we will still be together for three or maybe even four nights a week.
*We caught our little cat attacking the big one. I think they wont be friends ever but at least they haven't killed each other either. I found a few strands of fur in the hall when we came back and only a little while later caught Maunzerl slapping Lilly's a$$. It was hilarious.
*Families tend to fight over Christmas. One of my sisters in law did not think joining our early Santa celebrations and later on complained about it. It was her choice so my husband and his mother told her off. I still felt bad about it.
*I once more realized that I need harmony to function.
*Santa was once again way too generous and we had problems to haul it all away in our car.
* Why do we always end up over indulging on food and sweets? Good intentions? Well they were just that...intentions.
* People drive like idiots the minute it starts to snow.
* Why is there a sex shop near every major rest stop along the highway? Though I suppose this question is only ever asked by women.
* Christmas seems to fly really and it gets worse every year. No sooner than you have unpacked the presents and spent the day with the family, it is all over before the countdown is on again.
