Is way to short. Haven't gotten done nearly as much as I wanted to, but then I did have lots of time with family and friends, and just chilling.

Wednesday evening was potluck with the in-laws, thursday AM was at home with Himself and JP. Late lunch was with my side of the family where ham was consumed (except by the vegetarians of course :) ). On Friday JP did an absolutely marvelous standing rib with yorkshire pudding. She made little individual YPs in a muffin tin, I promptly dubbed them 'yorkies' :). Tonight is brisket and cheesy grits. Yeah, we've eaten our way pretty well through the holidays :).

Some fine gifts were given and received, some were actually surprises too :). I haven't hit any of the post-holiday sales altho we did make a field trip to a couple of thrift stores we don't usually get to and found a couple of deals.

Back to work for three days starting tomorrow but it should be pretty slow. I'm counting on that for getting a project or two done with few interruptions. No big plans for the next weekend. We haven't really been big party goers the last couple of years. Call us old :).

That's what I always say about the weather around here and this last week has certainly lived up to it. Sunday saw temps drop more than 50 degrees in a few hours, snow and wind chills in the negative numbers after that. Temps have been below freezing, then freezing rain forecast for yesterday. Had a bit of a mist during the day, then come evening it *poured* WITH thunder and lightening! Apparently temps got up into the 50's overnight and a lot of the snow on the south side of the greater metro area melted. Temps were dropping again in the AM but no black ice yet. I have hopes for decent roads and sidewalks for the last of my errands this weekend.

Speaking of, my faculty has been very nice to us this year. I have to say I have a pretty good bunch and they are always pretty considerate. The wife of one did a HUGE basket of homemade goodies plus some really cool scrapbooky-type ornaments for those of us in the office. Most remember cards and a thank you for our support during the year. The chair was very generous with a gift card to Penseys. I had planned to stop by there last weekend, looks like a good thing I didn't make it then :). I will be stocking up tomorrow!

Oh yeah, and new cable service was installed yesterday. It meant cleaning out a couple of closets I hadn't planned on but everything is in and working, just need to get another cable for our DVD player to set it up. For my holiday present to myself I now get to call the old service and tell them what they can do with it :) :) :).
