John and I arrived at his parents’ house last night around 10, pretty tired, but happy to be there. We decided not to stop for dinner on the way up, but fortunately, Pat had leftovers. 🙂 So we had a couple of slices of pizza. Everyone gave up and headed for bed around 1am, but we stayed up with Emily for about another hour. Then we collapsed. I got up at nine this morning with every intention of running (I even got Emily out of bed to go with me), but then we realized it was pouring outside. I don’t run in the pouring rain. 🙂 I told Emily (and Molly) that we can just postpone our run until tomorrow morning. We can go before we open presents. Molly thinks I’m kidding.
Anyway, we had a late breakfast and then ran some errands. Got back from errands and had a late lunch (like 4 o’clock late). Dinner tonight is lobster, but we’re trying to wait for Tom and Tania to get here. They’re on the road from Connecticut, but with the rain and the traffic, it’s hard to say when they’ll actually arrive. As long as they get here safe, it doesn’t really matter when.
Speaking of safe, Mom and Dad decided to stop for the night on their way back to AL since Dad is worn out from dodging skidding cars all over the highway. Good call, Dad. They’re in no hurry.
Anyway, I need to get back downstairs and be social. 🙂
Merry Christmas Eve!
Oh, that reminds me. I lit Hanukkah candles tonight. 🙂 Pat bought me a menorah and Hanukkah candles when she went to the store today. I had to look up the blessings online ’cause I couldn’t remember the first one. The other two were still in my head. It’s been a REALLY long time, though. And I had an audience, which made me a bit self-conscious.
Okay, I have go help out so I can keep my status as model daughter-in-law. 🙂
