Christmas Break

Oh, Christmas TreeToday is my last day of work before the Christmas break, and it can't come soon enough!

Two blissful weeks lay ahead...I don't return to work until January 4th.

I'm really looking forward to the holidays with the fam this year...my mother has always dreamed of having Christmas in a cozy cabin in Brown County, but we've never acted on it. Christmas has always been at the old homestead, steeped in tradition.

Traditional things got thrown out the window this year. In celebration of my parents' 40th wedding anniversary, as well as Mum finishing all her chemo and radition to treat her breast cancer, the "kids" decided to splurge and rent a cabin from the 23rd-26th.

To say I'm excited would be an understatement. ;-)

I plan to just sit and stare at nature (a commodity I sometimes miss in TinyTown), read copiously, eat, cook, sleep in, open presents, and bask in the glow of family.

We'll probably drive each other nuts within days, but never mind. ;-)

If that happens, I'll just play a game of pool, hop into the hot tub, or surf the 150 channels on the satellite.

This cabin is fully loaded: the Priddis clan does not rough it.

In any case, I'm counting the minutes and seconds until I can head home for our unique 2005 Christmas celebration. I promise plenty of pictures, book reviews and stories when I return!

Wishing you all the happiest of holidays!

I like that your presents are placed neatly under your tree. :) How very British!
