Christmas Recap

Sissy said this was the "best Christmas ever!". I suspect it's the first one where she really understands the whole "Santa/Presents" thing.

The Evil Twin had approached me a week or so earlier and said he wanted to get me a Kindle as a gift, but he wanted me to choose the one I wanted. After researching my options, I picked the Kindle Fire and also a handy protective case.

So far, I've watched a movie on it and downloaded a few books, but I'm still figuring it all out. I think it will be handy for the moments in my life I have a few minutes to burn waiting on [doctors, dentists, children, etc.]

The family has been enjoying the Christmas BREAK by doing only the bare minimum around here. Relaxation is our middle name now.

Unfortunately, we must make the soul killing visit to the Mart today. We are out of so much.... I'm STILL sick, but I think I can buck up and deal with the general public on a limited basis today.

Christmas Day at Casa Evil Twin was berry, berry good, indeed. I hope all my hooligans had happy holidays as well!



  1. Glad you are enjoying the Kindle Fire. My niece got one and we sat there and compared it to the Nook Color that my wife got me. They both have their own advantages. The downside for me is that I can apparently only purchase from Barnes & Noble.

    You should have lists of books you read - I suspect I'd probably enjoy reading some of the same things. My first purchase for the Nook was Chelsea Handler's Are you there, Vodka? It's me, Chelsea. So far, pretty funny.

  2. Glad you had a good Holiday. To bad about visiting the Mart though... really just sucks any good cheer right out of ya, you know?

  3. "best Christmas ever!". Gotta love to hear that. As far as the W/M, you just have to look at the entertainment factor. 1AM, two days before Christmas, the reason for "The People Of..." was clear.

  4. Hope you continue to feel better. My son got a Kindle Fire and I am coveting it. I have the regular Kindle and his is much cooler. Good luck at Walmart today. At least if you go today you can get through the long weekend without having to face it. Happy New Year!

  5. I have the regular Kindle and love it. I hear that the Kindle Fire is much, much cooler. It will be a great distraction during those 'wait times'

    I'm glad that Sissy had 'the BEST Christmas EVER!' this year. It does a heart good to hear kids still say stuff like that.
