Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)


Fun while it lasted.

I had a pretty great Christmas Day today.  Oh, there were one or two dips, which there always will be on 'emotional' days.  When you are hyped up for the good, the few hic-ups bring you down harder. 

I did finally figure out how to use the timer function on our camera, so I was able to get at least one functional picture of the 4 of us.

The kids were pretty happy with what they got...there were only one or two things that had been on their lists that they didn't get.  To be truthful, their lists were fairly small...4 or 5 items for each of them.  The only thing we really couldn't do anything about was my older daughter wanting 'Proof the Big Foot Exists' for Christmas.

Even our cat Reuben was happy, because there was space cleared back out from under the tree for him to sleep.

Even when you get a gift that you wanted, it's sometimes not the end of things.  For example...I did get the kilt I wanted for Christmas...but I also got a mission to lose 10-15 pounds.  I was able to get the kilt on, and buttoned up....but for the first time in my life, I had to lay down on the bed to put some clothes on.  I went up on pant size, because my ego wouldn't let me go up two. 

Stupid ego. 
Hope you had a nice Christmas...tomorrow, it's back to the real world for me, so...good night.
