Alas No Puppy

A puppy is our family Christmas joke since any gift may possibly be a "puppy", that's the stock answer when anyone says, " I wonder what this could be?" My husband would freak if we brought another animal in the house. However, he did put 4 new fish in the fish tank and I was the only one who didn't notice for 4 days. He even set me up by asking me to feed them one afternoon, and still they went unnoticed.

We had a very nice Christmas and spent a lot of time with family and friends. The surprise gift for us was the Wii that my husband bought me. We have two sport game discs and had a lot of fun last night with friends who were visiting. There's still the slight issue of motion sickness that I have with certain games that require a lot of movement. It's amazing to me that none of kids inherited this from me. I dread boat rides and spend a lot of time at amusement parks getting my exercise from walking and my enjoyment from people watching.

Rain in New England the last week of December seems like a sin! But with the warm weather today, we were able to take down some of our outside decorations before they get covered in snow. It's a good day to just relax by the fire, watch some football and just maybe take a nap.


  1. Sorry about no puppy! Cute story tho! I hope some of that snow is going to blow west for me . . . none here yet this year. last year we had two feet of snow on the ground by Christmas and it snowed all day Christmas too.

    Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

  4. I too believe your blog keeps getting better and better but I'm not trying to sell you software. Just come by my humble blog and pick up the award I have for you.

    And share with us about your Wii avatar! When I bowl with my nephew, I'm Bdaygrrrrl and I'm wearing Cubbie blue.

  5. I never thought of motion sickness - I have been wanting a Wii for the fitness games. I know years ago when they came out with Nintendo 64 and I tried it at the store, there was no way I could play it. Perhaps the Wii isn't for me, bummer!


Any thoughts or musings of your own to add?
