Mewwy Kwismas and a Perfect Storm

We had a great low-key Christmas with feasting on Christmas Eve this year since Anna and Jimmy were going to his parents' on X-Mas Day. They're then off to Vegas for a few days of fun and my other sister and her hubby left for Europe for a few weeks and will be back the 29th. I'm very excited about that trip and cannot wait to hear about it!

Mom had out some decorations and it was very nice since we don't really go all out for XMas the way most people do. We're so happy NOT to be out in the throngs of shoppers and year after year we're grateful not to be a part of that. The time away out in the country has been a nice break and the last five days have consisted of too much food and too little activity. I feel like a complete lump! Part of that problem has been the weather.

It's been rainy and windy and last night was the perfect storm of winds over 40 MPH and lots of rain. I haven't been in a storm that violent in years and it was very loud and forceful. We were planning on going on a day trip but it was rainy throughout that day too.

Letssee -- I've got more to write about and I know my blogging has dwindled significantly since living in Bangkok. Something about daily life here that's not that exciting to write about unless you would like to read about how I'm constantly thinking about finances and worried about our future and what we're going to do to ensure that we're not destitute when we're old. That's mostly what's been on my mind, also working on Discovery Day and taking care of Aidan. Among those three things in addition to daily tasks of running our household, that's all that happens in my life day in and day out so I'm finding that most of it isn't worth reporting. I do, however have some more interesting tidbits to share that I hope to write about within the next few days.

Hey Amy, I'm not sure either, but my guess would be the transition from using your old blogger account with your google account username. I had an old blogger account and I switched when they started offering the google username to log in to blogger. That's the only reason for a glitch that I can think of...

the thing that pisses me off is that i tried to upgrade my blogger acct (several times) and it won't let me. says there's a certain # of ppl who are still unable to upgrade (for some reason). i guess i'm just one of the lucky ones. :oP
