Since we didn't roll in until almost 4 last night, we slept in today. We finally opened gifts around 14:00. Steven got me new fleece pants (which I am currently wearing), a new denim skirt, some sheer snowflake knickers, 2 pairs of Cuban stockings, headphones for my iPod, floofy house socks, and a metric buttload of candy. My mum and Bruce bought me a lovely agate necklace and a laptop sleeve. It was a good if sedate holiday.
Of course, I was bored soon as we'd finished opening things, so after a lot of deliberation of nap vs. movie, we chose movie. We saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. It was actually quite good, though sad. It was also nearly three hours long. Definitely better than staying home, that's for sure.
Unfortunately, this meant we didn't get home till almost half past 20:00. I cooked nothing yesterday, so I started applesauce and the roasted potatoes knowing full well it would be forever till we ate. I also made a gingerbread cake, which we just had. We had our Honeycracked/Hanukkah Ham with green beans, applesauce, and roasted potatoes for dinner. The cats were thrilled.
I think we're going to do a bit of shopping tomorrow, as well as hitting the bank. I want to get a plug-in charger for the iPods and to check out Lush's Clean Slate sale.
I need to pack, as well, since we're headed to Maine for our anniversary. I can't wait. I have zero intention of leaving the hotel room except to eat. We have a jacuzzi, my back hurts, and we have a load of Lush stuff. We've made reservations at MC Perkins for our anniversary proper. We ate there the last time we were in Maine and it was good. The place we actually wanted to go was closed, so this was our second choice. Still, it will be good to get away, even though we went to Newport just barely a month ago.
I don't know why I'm so tired. Probably the last couple weeks catching up with me.
Hope everyone had a great holiday.
