Our week's worth of holidays have come and gone, and what a whirlwind ten or so days it was, filled with fun, frivolity, family, and friends…and more than a little Kay Kay Crazyness!
We started the holidays out with the last annual Tri-City Tour (Ajax – London – Chatham), and had loads of fun at both Grandma and Grandpa's place as well as Meme and Pepe's place.
Of course Kaylin got spoiled rotten, with tons of clothes, lots of toys, and even though she doesn't quite understand the whole concept of opening presents, she had a blast doing it. She loves her new pink rocking horse, her new baby doll, her puppy, and her Ark with all its animals. I think mommy's favourite gift was the Xylaphone, I've heard some pretty cool songs coming out of that thing (and she's totally self-taught folks).
Lest we think Christmas was all about Kaylin…I got spoiled too, with three new Xbox 360 games, some good reading material, some clothes, and a boatload of chocolate.
Kaylin had her own room at Grandma and Grampa's (the addition of the “Pack and Play” to G&G's sitting room makes any room a bedroom), but her routine was off just enough that she got up every night, one night for an hour, another night for two hours. That made us pretty sleepy, but she seemed to weather the storm alright.
As nice as it is going to my mom and dad's place (and hey, right now I do it once a week for two nights…so I must enjoy it), it will be really nice to spend next Christmas in our own little house, wake up with our own little tree, and be only a few minutes drive from my folks' place, and only an hour to Char's parents.
In house selling news, we were supposed to have four showings over the holidays, and of them, only one family showed up. Allow me to give you some little common courtesy advise. If you are in the market to buy a house, and you tell someone that you are coming to see their house, either actually DO IT, or call to cancel.
It is a pain in the ass to gather Kaylin up, interrupt her nap schedule, and get out of the house only to find out that nobody showed up at your house.
I'm working on a major update for All New Comics which I should be able to launch in late January, and I'm hoping to do a couple of other websites as well. I'd like to get all of my web work off my plate this month so that I can start working on packing and getting ready for the move.
That's it for today, check back later this week for my annual “New Year's Resolution”, where I look back at last year's resolutions (I think I batted about .500), and look forward to this year.
Hope everyone had a safe and happy new year.
