Boxing Day - Our annual movie night. We watched Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Julie & Julia, My Sister's Keeper, and Terminator: Salvation. We watched Star Trek last night. Ice's sister dropped by this afternoon for a quick visit and to...

Merry Christmas! - We had a great day. Everyone loved their presents (me included) and the food was yummy. The weather, on the other hand, was horrible — rainy and windy. Not that it mattered a whole lot since we didn't have to...

Christmas Eve - It was really weird not having to worry about the weather and rush through supper and hurry off to church. For the first time in years, we could just stay home. We had fondue (and Caesar salad) for supper which...

Building - This afternoon I went shopping (locally) with the girls. Bought stocking stuffers for them and Ice and even myself. Tonight I wrapped presents. It took four episodes of The West Wing and one episode of Criminal Minds (all on DVD)...

Closer - Went shopping yet again. Got Ice's presents this time, which turned out to be harder than I thought it would be. For some reason, I couldn't take two steps today without forgetting what I was looking for. It's a good...

Almost - Ice and I spent the afternoon shopping. There were two things we couldn't find, which Ice is going to look for when he returns to the city, but other than that and a few stocking stuffers, we're pretty much done...

Christmas concert #2 - Tonight was the Christmas concert at J's school. Although the concert is actually for grades K-4, J's band and his drama club also performed. Everyone did a good job and the little kids were as cute as always. What I...

Wrapping - I wrapped Christmas presents this afternoon and put them under the tree. Nobody noticed. I also watched a crappy movie while I wrapped. It's kinda my own Christmas tradition....

Progress - Ice and I went Christmas shopping today. Still not done but we're getting there. Watching Ice take a swig of Buckley's cough medicine was kinda entertaining. Plus, I think it made him high because he was willing to keep shopping...

Party - The Christmas party for Ice's work was tonight. After many years of holding this event at the local Legion, Ice's boss moved it to a golf club/inn/resort. At the Legion, the food was good but very basic, pretty much what...

Parade #2 - The parade in this town was much like the one we went to last week. Except it was much colder. And there were some people selling cotton candy. Who wants to eat cotton candy when you're wearing mittens? Also, the...

Christmas #2 - My sister-in-law was hosting this year which turned out to be a really good thing since J and I ended up staying home. He was not feeling all that great and I didn't want to spread this stupid bug around....

Parade - K's high school band was in the Santa Claus parade in a neighbouring town tonight. Since J is still sick, Ice stayed home with him while I took K and L&T. We had to be there an hour early so,...

Christmas #1 - Second day in a row that I haven't turned my laptop on until after 1am. It's a good thing I have my iPod Touch to keep the jitters under control. Today went really well. The turkey was perfect, thanks to...

The day before - Finished up the last of the shopping today. Went out for lunch. Put up the tree and decorated it. Cleaned. Wrapped presents. I don't know if we've done everything or not. Guess I'll find out tomorrow....

Undecorating, Canada Reads, and hockey - I took down the Christmas decorations today. The lights on the tree were a pain in the ass this year and some ornaments seemed to be mysteriously missing. But whatever, it's done. I finally got around to checking the library's...

Christmas break - The two weeks seemed longer than usual, maybe because Ice had 9.5 days off, maybe because Newt, MA, & K2 were here for the stretch between Christmas and New Year's, maybe because I did very little work. Whatever the reason,...

Snow day #1 (2008-9) - The kids have been waiting impatiently for a snow day but they really really didn't want today to be the one. Probably because there was very little schoolwork planned for the day. The storm was impressive but only lasted long...

Merry Christmas! - Stay warm and healthy, and enjoy good food, good booze, good presents, and good friends and/or family (not necessarily in that order). Merry Christmas! Image from Twas the Night Before Christmas, written by Clement Clarke Moore, illustrated by Jessie...

Snow day #1 (2007-8) - Not a lot of accumulation during the day, mostly because it was so windy the snow didn't have a chance to settle. We got dumped on tonight though. Also, it took Ice 5.5 hours to get to work. I went...

Catching up - I can't seem to find the time to post here. I'll try to remedy that. The kids have a PD day tomorrow. Sure, I get to sleep in but they have to go back to school for Friday. On what...
