I was on vacation from the time I left work on Christmas Eve until the morning of January 4th. In an effort to help me remember what went on during vacation, I thought I’d document daily highlights here. Apparently this is becoming somewhat like a diary.
12/24/09 – Went to my mother’s for her birthday and to swap Christmas gifts.
12/25/09 – Christmas at home. Then the wife’s dad and sister came over for gifts and lunch. Then to her mom’s house for gifts, and then to her aunt’s house with my wife’s entire family.
12/26/09 – We stayed inside all day. What a happy Saturday!
12/27/09 – Church in the morning, and then the Doughtys came a day early to stay with us! We went to Asian Palace II. It’s not all that.
12/28/09 – Got together with friends to have a prime rib dinner (delicious!), exchange gifts, and play a board game.
12/29/09 – I’m not sure we left the house for anything…the Doughtys were still here, though!
12/30/09 – The Doughtys left. We went to church that night. Then we drove to my wife’s work to look at the Christmas picture she painted on the window there.
12/31/09 – Lunch with my father and half-brother (on his side). It was great to catch up and get to know them a bit better. We stayed up until midnight, logging on to the computer just in time to watch the ball drop in New York.
1/1/10 – We didn’t leave the house. A great New Year’s Day. There was much computer time and much reading time. That’s my idea of a great day.
1/2/10 – We went to lunch with my mother and went grocery shopping, despite the snow storm that has been raging for two days, because we needed to get out of the house. Apparently the wife goes a little stir crazy sometimes.
1/3/10 – Another day without leaving the house. I think life is grand.
