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.
