Whew! Thank goodness THAT’s over!
Not that I don’t love me some time off, but I’m totally holiday’d out! I can’t get the decorations down or packed fast enough! I want my living room back!
Peanut got a TON of Star Wars stuff for xmas. He got far too many clones than I could count, two vehicles, all SEVEN movies (the animated Clone Wars included in the original 6-disc series), a Star Wars The Clone Wars version of Monopoly (which he has played ONCE), trading cards, etc.
He also got clothes, toys, pens, pencils, typical stocking stuffers and TONS of candy.
I’m still amazed that my family can insist on a Pollyanna and then STILL buy for everybody. Do you people have ANY clue as to the purpose of a Pollyanna??? Wake up!
I made out like a bandit. Got everything on my Pollyanna lists (family and Queen’s Croppers). I got The Outlaw Demon Wails by Kim Harrison (in paperback), a Joan Jett CD and three cute ornaments from my family Pollyanna (my sister, Thank you!). I got photo splits and layout folders from my QC Pollyanna (“Mom”, Thank you!). The Peanut got me the Snowman Webkinz and the singing snowmen from Hallmark (Thank you!). “Santa” gave me my perfume and tons of cool stocking stuffers (Thank you!).
The Runner gave me a cute needlepoint kit that I will do shortly (because I need to finish THIS first) and some GC which I will TOTALLY enjoy spending. 🙂
Spent NYE with The Peanut and some giggling friends. Decided to throw a Come As You Are party for him and his friends. Figured they could show up in the PJs, party and crash. Which is pretty much exactly what they did. 🙂 My friend got some cute pics of them making noise and shooting off poppers at midnight. 🙂
The Peanut is exhausted from the holidays, but I think pretty glad to be back at school today…we shall see when he gets home 😉
I am back at the SCSH and champing at the bit for my orthodonitst appointment. I KNOW I won’t be getting the bottom braces off today, but I’ll be one step closer once the appt’s over! Wow, the end to that race is in sight!
