Well I’m sitting here typing on my new laptop. I like it and all, but I made a quick decision and I don’t know if I would had been happier with another Toshiba I was looking at or a Dell. But alas, I have the one I have and we will deal with it. :) I usually agonize over high dollar purchases, and take months to find what I want and look at everything…but I got my Christmas bonus from work, had my brother looking and he picked this one out. So I bought it one night on a whim and quick decision. The people I bought it from will not exchange it…unless something is wrong with it…not because I ‘just don’t like it’. But oh well.. the keyboard is a little odd too, now that I’m using it. Next time I will agonize a little longer…you live and learn. But on the up side I also bought a video camera that I am very impressed with (also picked out by my brother) and I am getting some good footage of our CAOH that is going on this week.
You ask…what is CAOH. It stands for Christmas at Our House, and it’s an annual dinner theater that our church does each December. So far we have had about 340 plus each night, and we are going a total of nine nights this year. It’s crazy!! We have people from all over the place that come to it, and we also have about 200 plus left on a waiting list that want tickets but there is just no way that we can do it. I believe that nine nights is pushing it…luckily I have today off and I have done nothing but lay in bed and read all day. It’s been a blast though…it’s awesome getting to see so many people (many I know, some I don’t) and to give them a laugh and some time away (out) to kick off their Holiday Season. We have two nights left (tonight and tomorrow).
My parents leave a week from yesterday for Ireland. They are going over to spend the Holidays with my brother and his family (The March Gang). I will be staying up really late Christmas Eve to ‘open gifts’ with the family via skype. It will prove to be an interesting Christmas, then the rest of the day I will just kick back and sleep, watch movies, and probably clean house. May go to Grandma’s and bum some Christmas dinner, or to my aunt’s. I have options! It will be a different Christmas, but I’m glad my parents are getting to go over and spend time with the grand-kids.
My roommate is moving out this weekend. It’s been an interesting week, and a good two months, but sometimes things just don’t work out and are better off not to have happened. And this has been one of the worst and best things to have happened to me. That’s all that’s being said on that point.
I got some really cool new backdoor put in. I have french doors in my kitchen and we had just regular windows in them and I had to put curtains up, with rods and yadda yadda. It worked, but looked a little tacky maybe. I love my new kitchen doors. I helped my dad put them…nothing to make you appreciate something more than when you are the one that helps make it happen. I’ll post a picture of them later.
Well, I need to go. I need to shower and start facing my day…since it is already after noon. I have to run some errands and start going through my kitchen stuff…to separate out everything and get her stuff ready to pack. Then I’m off to church to help make dumplings and get another night of CAOH under our belt.
