Christmas dinner was a success. Huzzah! Actually people stuffed themselves so bad, we had to wait more than an hour before we had the rice pudding dessert. There were minor disasters, but those are part of the fun. The dining table, for instance. It has been stored in the shed for a year and it being very old and solid oak, it had reacted to the moist and cold, naturally it was no longer straight, but had morphed into a little ski-jump in one end. It's now been thrown on the hanger heading for the dumpster, poor thing has long outlived it's purpose, I'm sure it's happy to finally be put to permanent rest. Hubby surprised me with an extra present for us(read himself) a 40 inch flat-screen TV that can be hooked up to the computer etc. We only had 3 old fashion ones - that all worked nicely thankee verra much - already, but they were NOT flat-screens. I'm told there is a HY-UUUUGE difference... actually, I watched one of the HP movies and I have to admit, it was kinda awesome watching it on the new set.
There's been some drama... my daughter got a panic attack after her brother and father got into a shouting match, but I think it ended fairly okay. Instead of ending in full blown war, my daughter did something very grown-up and mature, she came up and told her father why she panicked. I left them alone and they had a long talk. Even though hubby still thinks she needs to grow up, he managed to bite his tongue and just let her get it all out of her system. Hopefully this will help her move on and let go of the past.
Eitherwho I'm taking da hubby up to the cabin tonight. He's got two days off work and it'll be best for all parties if I go into hiding with him for a night or two.
Have a fantabulous New Year's Eve folks *cheers*
