So, one goal I had for the year was 200 blog posts. And this is it. I've made my goal! (And it's one reason I am blogging when I should be packing to leave for Christmas.)
Of course, I've only made it so far thanks to the Spring and Fall reading challenges and the mini reviews I was doing for those.
Last week, I dropped $1000 on my car. Minor things like timing belt, water pump, front breaks. All things I'm glad I have taken care of before heading to my parents.
But this weekend turned out to be all about fun. Heck, I barely got presents wrapped and laundry done. Friday night was Kurt and Kellie's annual Christmas party, which was fun as always. And I made Blonde Brownies and Strawberry Whippersnappers, both of which seemed to be a hit. Personally, I think the brownies are better, but I'm not a fan of the artificial strawberry taste.
Saturday I hung out at the condo and went to see Yes Man, which was okay at best.
Sunday at Sunday School, I was invited to head out with a couple guys and race electric go carts. Wow, they moved fast! I was almost the slowest person on the track, but it was fun. At the price for 8 minutes, I probably won't do it again soon, but I'm glad I did it.
Then I headed over to Jason and Ashley's to drop off some books for him to read. Wound up staying to watch the end of the Redskin's game and then play some Mario Kart Wii. That got me in the mood, so I came home and played more.
Yesterday I goofed off, just barely getting the afore mentioned present wrapping and laundry done. But I did head over to Chris and Brooke's for a Christmas Open house. I was only going to stay an hour. You guessed it. I stayed two.
Now? I really need to pack so I can get to Donald and Heather's at a decent dinner hour so we can have a good visit before I have to continue on to Mom and Dad's.
If I don't check in before, have a very Merry Christmas.
