The Day After

Oh my! How can I feel like this when I don't drink?
We opened all our presents, the kids all got toys that make noise, do they make any that don't?
Mom's is waiting for her return late Monday.
We had a nice breakfast, did a little shopping at Walrgeens came home and played a new Monopoly game (The City). It has a computer with credit cards (extra of course) to keep track of the money. It is a much more modernized version of the old game with sky scrapers, you bid on the purchase of property with a timer that ends the bidding (like e-bay). Overall a new game to add to our collection. We also have a Scene it of all the Star Trek series. Now we're going to have to catch up on all the Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise episodes.
The turkey was baked Wednesday, deboned and stored in the fridge so all we had to do was heat it up and fix a few side dishes for a pleasant late afternoon dinner.
For the next week my favorite part is eating oranges, apples, bananas and shelling nuts. For some reason the week between Christmas and New Years these foods bring back pleasant memories. (It's what Mom always put into our stockings usually along with a bag of chocolate coins)
The family present for this year was a Wii Fit game (the original that we got the last one in stock at a Radio Shack) to help us all stay in shape during the winter when it's too cold to exercise outside.
The one thing that is horrible is that the sun is shining and it looks so nice outside, but a pocket of cold air has settled on us and the high for today will only be around 30 degrees and that means no golf. The greens will stay frozen until too late in the day to get a round in. I'm hoping it'll get a little warmer by Monday so the gaggle can play.

To all my friends and family that come by to read my rambings, may these next days be calm and stress free so that you return to work refreshed.

I love the period between Christmas and New Years. Everybody kind of relaxes. Except I have to work this week. But I'm thankful that I have a job to go to.

We love the Wii Fit. There is a good balance of straight exercises and fun stuff and the more you do the more that is available.

Hi Yogi, it is a good time of the year. We'll have fun learning it all I'm sure.
