Hello, gentle readers. Welcome to Christmas 2010.
It has been a decent day so far. I got up shortly after 6am and waited for Patricia to arrive. She didn't get to the house until 9am or so. Gayle arrived around 8.
This was our first Christmas without Dad. Opening presents from Mom just labelled "from Mom" was disconcerting. As I have stated before and will here for the last time, this has not been a great holiday.
We spoiled Mom rotten. We all bought her a lot of things, and she was happy to get them.
After a late Christmas dinner most of us took a nap. I woke up around 5pm. Ate some fruit. And my sister and her husband and their daughter visited around 6:45. They left around 8:15. Sbortly thereafter, Maggie sent me a fb message inviting us down for a visit, so we are here. I am typing these words on my netbook with an internet connection (yay!!). We will hang out here and return to my mother's in an hour or two.
Not a bad Christmas. Not a great one either. Just a Christmas, the first one without my dad.
Back to work on Wednesday the 29th. Looking forward to it.
Have a good evening.
