I'm embarassed by how long it's been since my last post. Well, there were work deadlines, a week long trip to PA, two holidays, and....everything else gets in the way sometimes. So, to summarize the last few weeks, here's a recap.
Yule - My little family unit celebrated Yule quietly with some fun gifts. FiG's gifts required assembly so A-Mo and I did that while she played with her fake food. Tempura shrimp and tuna maki were her favs that night.
Christmas - It was a great holiday. Despite not getting much sleep I came home from PA feeling good about the visit. Highlights included NY SIL's cookies, making pizzas while blind tasting 6 merlots on Christmas Eve, the roast beast feast the following night, a personal visit from Santa Claus himself (my parents have some amazing friends!), watching all my bad memories from 2007 burn with Pancho, and the gifts - ALL the gifts. Lowlights included the failed crossing of the Delaware re-enactment, the bruises after wrestling with older brother (though the wrestling itself was fun, albeit a little weird for those in the room), and not enough time outdoors.
New Year's Day - Brunch at home with close friends....even a few from all the way in Zurich. A fabulous way to start the year. I highly recommend it.
FiG - Huffenpuff moved into his new apartment in the bedroom closet. Teeth count as of today: 11. More on the way. At least I think that's why she was up all night Friday and Saturday nights - ALL NIGHT. VA SIL taught FiG "uh-oh" when we were in PA. It sunk in. She doesn't actually say it, but she makes the sound "ah-uh" when appropriate or whenever she feels like practicing it. Too cute. Can't wait for "no." Snort.
A-Mo - Continues to work on mastering Guitar Hero III. He has developed a guitar-related tic. And he has become this house's laundry master.
Me - It's my month to get all my medical ducks in a row for the year, work is busy, and somehow I've found time to pick up my knitting needles again. It feels good to knit again.
