I'm not missing. I'm just not around much.

I hope it is appropriate blog etiquette to not post so much during the holidays, because I obviously am not posting a whole lot. Luckily, a couple of weeks off with family and friends provides lots of blog fodder. Here is a taste:
  • Christmas at Sean's family's house, we received some lovely gifts. Truly, we did. However, we also were treated to a not so lovely, LARGE, gilded frame picture of my inlaws. Of course, I was the first one to open it (there are 3 siblings). Opening such a gift after having a couple of drinks isn't the best idea. I tore off the wrap, only to be greeted with a shot of my mother-in-law struggling between a smile and a sneer, with one eyebrow cocked higher than the other. I managed to utter a "well, will you look at that?" before succumbing to a coughing/laughing/sputtering fit.
  • Going out with friends for margaritas...winding up having a margarita, a beer, and a shot in a very short period of time. Subsequently engaging in long discussion about how one activates the automatic paper towel dispenser in a public bathroom properly.
  • Taking a long nap after above night out
  • Learning to use my new IPHONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!!

I just asked Sean if I can use the picture for a 200th blog post giveaway, but he is saying no. He must be more attached to it than I thought. Guess I still need to get a good idea going for that...this is post #197!!

Ummm....hope you have a special place for the picture of your inlaws...like maybe the garage...hanging up of course, so you can reflect on them while you're coming and going.

Lucky!!!! An iphone!! Can't wait to see the pictures and celebrate your 200th post.

Oy, don't the inlaws know they should steer such gifts of self-aggrandizement to their biological child for the opening?

Hahaha! Maybe the picture should meet with an unfortunate accident?
