So, Christmas & New Years happened. I survived both.
I got lots of new games for Christmas: Cosmic Cows, Ingenious Challenges, Hey, That's My Fish!, & Buzzword. I also got The Facts In The Case Of The Departure Of Miss Finch, which is a Neil Gaiman story illustrated by Michael Zulli that I didn't have yet. And I got cozy slippers, and a pretty sweater, and a pashmina/silk scarf, and a pretty candle, and some yummy smelling soaps, and I'm sure I've forgotten something.
We spent Christmas Eve morning at my parent's house with my sister & brother & sister-in-law & brother-in-law & nephews & niece for our traditional brunch. I introduced my family to Cards Against Humanity. Then Rick & I ran home to take care of Rex & Fabreeze the hell out of our clothes before going out to Rick's sister's house for the rest of the night. All told, I think we ended up having a total of 6 family Christmases this year. Luckily we didn't have to buy/bring gifts for most of them.
Now I've got tomorrow off work so I plan to sleep in while Rick goes to work. That's something that NEVER gets to happen! LOL! I don't have to work because they're doing inventory at the store but my boss hadn't put me on any of the inventory teams. I don't get paid for the time off, but I also don't have to worry about extra work piling up while I'm not there.
