Who has more cookies?

How was everyone’s Christmas? Mine was super-excellent-awesome…look, a new word! I feel like I put on about 30 pounds from eating so much, but there is no real crime in that, I suppose. Between Big Sis’ birthday, and then Christmas Eve with The Boy’s family and Christmas Day with the adopted family, I ate a whole lot of everything.

I am particularly a big fan of the little peanut butter cookies with a Hershey’s Kiss in the middle. Mmmm…me likey!!!

Munchkin is now gone on vacation…raise your hand if you are jealous (one hand up, but I have to put it back down to type again). The family she is going with came to pick her up bright and early this morning, and her plane is currently en-route to Miami. Then on to sailing around the Caribbean for a while. Not bad…

That also means that I get some solid non-parental alone time with The Boy, as well as the chance to hopefully catch up with some friends I don’t see that often. I will spare you the running “orgasm count”, but I can assure you that it will be substantial…hee hee. I would like to say that I will get some rest and relaxation, but I know myself better than that, and finally given the chance to respond to all of the “Hey, we are meeting here for a drink” invitations in the affirmative, I will likely run myself a little bit ragged. Whatever, you only live once!

Was Santa good to everyone? He was very good to me, even without counting the super-cute new little sister. I got a really, really gorgeous bracelet from Papa Bear from Mrs. Rock’s stash. He gave Munchkin some earrings, too…but I didn’t let her take them with her sailing…lol. That was sort of the most exciting of the stuff that I got, the rest was mostly clothes and the like. All of it was much appreciated:-)

Munchkin totally cleaned up. Beyond the earrings she got just about everything you can imagine a little girl would want (save for a pony) courtesy of her two pretend older sisters. If she is not the best dressed 11 year-old in school, then I don’t know who is. When she first moved here, I was a little hesitant about letting Smoking Hot Roommate and Big Sis be too generous to her, just because I was worried about her adjusting and all of that. But, as long as she does well in school (all A’s again, thank you very much!!!) and stays the little angel she is, then she can have whatever they wanna give her.

Anyway, back to work…I can’t put this off forever. I hope everyone else’s Christmas was as much fun as mine!

Hey, if she had asked for a pony, I'd have gotten her one!!!

I'm glad you had a great Christmas!
I worked Christmas day... the girl child kept calling me at work with "Mom, are there any babies born yet?" She thinks being born on Christmas is the best thing ever... (there were several babies born yesterday).
I told her that I'm not sure I'd like a Christmas birthday because both would be celebrated at once :)...

It is wonderful you are able to spoil her (on special occassions) -it is nice that the option exists and that she is so loved.

When I make those peanut butter cookies I use the hershey kisses that have peanut butter in them...extra delicious! And as much as I enjoy all of the goodies, I'm beyond ready to return to eating somewhat normal.

I am so glad you guys had such a lovely Christmas, and I'm sure Munchkin is enjoying the break from Boston weather. For those of us living in the real world, at least this is a short work week followed by a long weekend, right?
