We spent most of the holiday at home. Like most everyone else living in the middle of the country, we got a fair amount of snow. The kids loved it! By the 26th of December, we had just over 24 inches of snow. I couldn't believe it when it started to cover the bottoms of the swings.
Eva and one of our neighbor girls tried it out. They could sit on them but not swing because the snow was so packed underneath. Fun times.
It was nice spending the holiday at home with nowhere that we really needed to go.
The other thing that happened over the holiday? I got my gallbladder out. I spent New Year's Eve in the hospital. I thought I would be a bit further along in my recovery by now but I'm still pretty much stuck in my room most of the day. I'm in a lot of pain but I'm catching up on a lot of tv. Did you know that All My Children is celebrating its 40th anniversary this week? Noah Wylie also suggests that we spend $16 a month to save the polar bears. I'm not buying it. I thought I might have to get the InStyler and SkinID but then I saw Hoarders and realized...I'm good.
