We had a beautiful (albeit sickly) Christmas. This is Ronaldo on Christmas Eve, waiting for Santa.
Dan got really sick but was a trooper as we went through our Christmas rituals. We were with my family this Christmas and Dan had to cancel his travel plans to go to Seattle to spend some post-Christmas time with his side of the family. He is on the mend now, but it really sucked having to make the decision not to go. I get to enjoy his time now, but feel bad for his family.
We've been busy "cleaning up Christmas" and have almost all of the decorations down already. As much as I LOVE Christmas, I feel the need to be done with it and move on already. I think I'm anticipating a really busy Jan and Feb and the sooner I can "get my game face on" for that, the better. I need to get things done, put things away, write things down and prep for the next couple of months.
I'm reviewing my "Getting Things Done" processes and getting psyched for "stress-free productivity." I listened to a few pod casts today on GTD and 43 folders. Good stuff.
We are actually thinking about hosting a little New Years get together even though we already did a big Christmas bash. We just love to entertain. It's what we do.
The kids got XBox Live for Christmas so they have been busy setting it up and figuring it out. They are having a blast with it. Oh, yeah. We finished our fireplace re-model!
