Had a wonderful holiday! Mom & stepdad just left after 3 days, and now our house feels a little empty.

Our haul this year was amazing:

- baby clothes and blankets from Dad
- cash (an absurd amount; I think we netted close to $1K this time...sadly, 80% will go into savings for baby!)
- crockpot from bro (I can't wait to cook with it)
- Xbox Kinect system + Dance Central from John's sisters (demo'd it on Christmas day - ohmygod so fun)
- lotions and knicknacks, including some wonderful soaps and belly butter..yummm
- food & drink, of course
- Samsung HD handheld camcorder for John (from me)
- alarm clock & sound therapy system
- rocking chair for the baby's room (from Mom & stepdad)

and this:





1.68 ct. sapphire and diamonds on platinum. He finally made an honest woman out of me. ;)

We decided we'd put off the wedding celebration until after the baby's birth. But for now we'll get the paperwork done, and make it official. (I guess this means I need to change my name. Eeek!)

Kinda late, but J and I have been busy for the past several days. Highlights include:


  • the usual fantastic Christmas meal, family gathering, and loot haul

  • marathoning the entire season 3 of Dexter with J, and loving every minute of it. Jesus, Jimmy Smits was fucking fantastic.

  • Ruby Cuvee champagne that tasted like raspberries, with dark chocolate. And sex.

  • Ice skating today at the SF Embarcadero, right on the pier. So fun, and I forgot how easy it was to pick it up again after only ten minutes on the ice. Afterwards we had an excellent dinner here, where I saw this work of art and my Avatar-obsessed brain went "...guh."



This weekend looks like the potential for snowboarding; we shall see how the roads look on Saturday. :D

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and New Year, and happy 2009!

Man! What a couple of weeks.

Christmas was good. The family all came together, and while I bought a lot of very expensive items this year (mostly for mom and dad, which is okay, because in all likelihood I owe them some $$ anyway), I came away with a good chunk of stuff, too.

the haul... )

John and I exchanged our presents early. He'd bought me a new iPod nano (which I now desperately needed, since my stupid mini up and died), and I gave him money - only half - towards an Xbox360 and Gears of War. We've never spent this amount of money on each other during holidays or birthdays before; so we didn't feel too badly about doing it this one time. So then we picked both items up, and then went back to my place...and we played Gears of War for like, 6 hours straight. No joke. I know some people have game orgies longer than that, but man, by 6 hours later I was hurtin'. That's rough. Plus it's a scary game, so we had to turn it off after a while. ^^;;;

The week afterward was good. Spent a lot of time with friends, lots of good wine and comfort food, but very little gym time. Feeling guilty. There was ice-skating and in January there will be snowboarding! OH YES.

John got sick after Christmas, so I knew we weren't doing anything special for New Year's. In the couple of days before, I managed to finally crank out chapter 19 of TBT, and the epilogue! The fic is finally complete! http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1695122/20/ I'm already working on the first chapter of the sequel - I know, obsessive; but when my momentum strikes, I have to do it, 'cause I never know when it's going to quit on me.

So what did everyone else do?? I feel as though I've been MIA, I've been so fic-obsessed lately. ^^;;; Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!!
