feels good to be home

John decided yesterday morning to leave Kingston last night instead of today. What a great decision!! It felt great sleeping in our own bed, waking up and just being home. We met our friends Jamie and Sandra for dinner in Brockville, and were home by 10. John John had a great Christmas and got lots of nice gifts. My hubby treated me to a massage chair. I overindulged and my back was actually hurting! I now know not to use it for a few hours straight.

Sunday morning

Snow storm and ice storm. Oh what fun! Right now it's pretty quiet outside, but they are predicting more snow. I wonder if we'll have a snow day tomorrow. Yesterday John John and I braved the crowds at Toys R Us to get presents for nieces and nephews. I drove past both malls and said that there was no way we were going anywhere near there. It was crazy enough at Toys R Us. I started wrapping a while ago, but there's still tons to wrap.
Yesterday marked 3 years of my mom's passing. I was a bad daughter and did not put an In Memorium for her. Lame excuse I know of running out of time. It is hard to believe 3 years has now passed. She missed meeting her two granddaughters. We are all getting together next Sunday for a dinner. I haven't seen Andrew since last year. It is a two way street, and he hasn't made an effort either. Oh well. I feel bad because I have no idea what to get Nathan or Monika. Off to finish some baking.

I must admit I am a terrible blogger. I haven't written in over a month. Where has the time gone? Thanksgiving and Chanukah are now over, and Christmas is just around the bend. John is in gift receiving heaven. We've warned him that there won't be tons of gifts. However he is 7, and at this lovely age presents rule.
We are now getting our share of winter. I hate rearranging my work to accomodate winter driving. Counting down the days till spring!
I have to admit that I am a bad daughter also. Saturday marks the 3rd anniversary of my mother's death. I did not put in an in memorium as I ran out of time. Tonight I need to light a candle, and neither grocery store has the correct candle. Guess I'll have to improvise.
