My wonderful hubby has listened to me bemoan the loss of tv watching in the kitchen. (I had a b&w 9" countertop tv/radio) Of course it stopped working when we went digital and so now I hardly hear any news and I really miss it....I spend a lot of time in the kitchen making meals, baking, doing dishes, etc. (We don't have a dishwasher)
So he got me a 19" lcd hd Flatscreen TV that he's going to mount on the wall!! I was
I've already considered taking it back for something smaller but he insists it isn't too big. He's going to hook up the cable to it, too.
I asked if I should move my recliner to the kitchen, lol.
So I love that, of course.
My bro got me an Amazon card so I could pick my 2nd uke- yay! We have a big family and exchange so I got a lot...not gonna list it all. Some faves are- Dexter calendar, Hypnose perfume, Fright Night DVD (one of my faves), a very cool creepy gargoyle that lights up and says some really creepy shi, Starbucks gift card, Barnes and Noble gift card, Supercool t-shirt of George Washington where you can see an x-ray of his skull thru his face.
Jack Skellington long-sleeve tee, Bath and Body Works stuff.
Seeing Jake open his gifts from us and Santa and be so happy....it makes us happy. He still believes.
Seeing him and Tom playing Super Mario Bros together on Wii last night was cool.
Oh, and for fun my cousin Brad (he of the dark cherry fudge) got me 3 boxes of "goodies:" BBQ and cheddar cheese flavored larvae (big mealworms) and box of Cheddar cheese crickets. Also, a sucker with a scorpion in the center. Urg.
The little kids surprised the heck out of me! They clamored for the worms once they saw us eat one, lol! I couldn't hand them out fast enough!
They tasted like hollow cheetos.....
The crickets I refuse to try. So far. Same with the scorpion. No uh-huh.
But they're neat.
Reminds me I need to get another Archie McPhee catalog.
We had a lovely XMas Eve and Day. Just have to get together with my bff and her kids so they can exchange gifts with Jake and then Christmas will officially be over.
nancy, whoever was the gift-giver...that was a very cool thing to do!
delirium...I'm sorry about that letter. Set it aside and out of your mind, if you can. 7 DVDs about the Rapture?? Um, wow.
I hope you and your bf were able to have a relaxing holiday and that you were happy.
I thought of all of you here and hoped everyone was having a good holiday, however you celebrated it!
Less than a week and it'll 2010! Can you believe we're a decade into the 2000's already?! It flew by, for me at least!
