Tomorrow I have to go back to work. Sigh. I want another week of holidays.

Here's what I did:
- went skating with my kids
- went bowling with my extended family
- celebrated Christmas Eve at Marcel's sister's place
- celebrated Christmas Day at my sister's place
- watched Julie bake and decorate a birthday cake for Auntie ccap
- ate a couple of good meals at my mom's place
- went to a movie with my siblings
- went to a couple of movies with my kids and assorted nieces and nephews
- watched 5 soccer games
- ate lots of great food at the annual New Year's Eve brunch at church
- ate lots of great food at the Prairie Bounty open house
- went to see the New Year's Eve fireworks
- slept late almost every morning
- tore out the remainder of the ugly carpet
- painted the floor
- painted the walls
- played some lame computer games
- played some less-lame board games
- partook of the annual "candy and pop" breakfast on New Year's Day with my daughters (do you know that Coke at 9:30 in the morning makes me sick to my stomach?)
- took lots of long baths

Here's what I didn't do:
- Christmas baking
- much cooking
- read anything more intellectually stimulating than People magazine or Reader's Digest
- visit the shopping mall - not for Christmas shopping nor for "Boxing Day Blowout" sales
- blog
- clean the house
- have any company over

Happy New Year everyone!
