Can I just tell you how much I am enjoying this break? I am sleeping in, reading, and just enjoying time with the family. Tim has been at the ski hill slot with Aidan for practice, so I have been having 1:1 time with Owen. This morning, Tim took both boys to the hill, so I have been puttering around, drinking coffee, watching TV, reading, doing some errands. Nice.

For the first time I can remember, I am feeling truly relaxed on vacation. I am nit thinking about what awaits back at work, and even though I am loving the break, I am even looking forward to going back to work. It is truly amazing what the right job can do for you.

Christmas was nice. All of our traditions were enjoyed by all....some good memories. I think I nailed it with gifts, and I promised my mother the annual photo book would be a birthday (January) gift, since a computer virus wrecked the chances of it being a Christmas present.

I love him, but, once again, Tim was a lame-o with gifts. He got me five bags of BJ's sized chocolates, wrapped them, and slapped the kids' names on them. OK. Awesome. The thing that is killing me is that he keeps wanting me to agree that he did really well. Yah. Not. I mean, thumbs up on choosing Lindt and Ghirardelli, but really? Honestly, though, this year, I am not overly bothered by it. It's him. He is the world's worst gift-giver. I am not going to change him. And, I admit, I put pretty minimal thought into his gifts. He got some new socks, a set of Canada DVDs, and some sports things. Pretty lame. I did not have the time to really get creative, and I don't feel too bad about it. Is that awful?

Anyway, having a nice week, and really looking forward to what 2012 may bring. No plans for New Years...will likely be quiet.

Oh, and in fun news, I get to work the NH Republican Primary debate on the 7th. The college I work for hosts a few debates during primary season, and they needed volunteers. Not sure what my role will be, but it may be being. Runner for one of the press teams or the candidates. Should be fun. And, George Stephanopolous is shooting This Week on campus the day after, and I have a ticket. Fun! Of course, I will not be voting in the primary, being a Democrat and all, but, hey, still fun.

OK, back to my book. Happy Holidays, everyone!
