I’ve been busy for the last couple of weeks, but it’s been good. It started with a busy but fun Christmas.
Naturally, I drove north to spend time with my family. I drove up on the 23rd, enjoying my new car the entire time. It rained about half the way up, but it wasn’t a bad storm. And my car gets better gas mileage and has a larger tank, so I was able to go almost all the way home before I had to get gas. In fact, I probably could have gone the entire way up if I wanted to.
I had three full days up there visiting with family. My uncle and aunt were over for part of the time, and I got plenty of time with my parents, my brother, and his family. We spent much of Christmas day with my brother’s in-laws which was fun as well. Plus we spent some time Christmas Eve with good family friends.
We were always doing something, so it wasn’t exactly restful, but it was super fun. I wouldn’t change any of it at all. It was so nice getting to spend all that time with people I don’t get to see nearly often enough.
