Wow as quickly as Christmas came.. POOF it was gone! Since we just got to Colorado, we decided not to go anywhere this Christmas. It was so nice just being the 4 of us. Nowhere we had to be… we just chilled all day Wednesday and Thursday. I know next year won’t be the case but it was VERY NICE this year!
Like I said we didn’t do much.. On Christmas Eve we basically watched Christmas movies, sang Christmas songs, and get things ready for the BIG Day!
Christmas morning… our lovely (use that word loosely) children decided to get up at 0-dark-thirty (530 AM ) to be exact to open presents. The kids certainly hit the motherload this year. Santa brought all kinds of presents(Barbie, High School Musical, Hannah, & Cheetah Girls stuff) but the coveted Wii was definitely the big hit.
I got a few things I wanted : a new MN Wild Hockey jersey (yes yes I know I live in Colorado now) , another “Atta Girl” to add to my collection (this one for the PCS move), and some other cool stuff. SGT Daddy got a new game for the xbox, some clothes, Master & Commander Books, and some HALO3 things. : )
The rest of the day we spent playing with our new toys, eating an awesome Christmas dinner with all the trimmings and had a great time!
Sgt Daddy and I bought ourselves a new printer which totally ROCKS! It’s the new Kodak ESP 9 Printer .. you know the one with the cheaper priced ink. The best part about it is that the printer is wireless and the print quality is amazing. It took about 5 min to get it all setup and connected to the wireless network. I’ll never have to leave the comfort of my sofa now when I’m working : ) (i’m not sure yet if that’s a good thing or a bad thing)
Now that Christmas is over and 2009 is right around the corner, we get to start getting ready for training at Polk and the BIG D (no not Divorce or Dallas but Deployment). I guess Christmas was the benchmark so to speak.
The “I’m not going to think about it till after Christmas ” deadline.
Now that it is here and gone, I’m thinking about Big D a lot wondering what life is going to be like, what deployment gremlins (aka problems) will arise, how the kids will tolerate Sgt Daddy not being around, How I will tolerate being a “married single parent”… ah the list goes on and on . Sometimes I think .. oh just hurry up and go so we can get it over with. (not really but you know what I mean)
Well I hear the Wii calling my name……
