MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Started by giving Middle Brother his stocking and waking up Oldest Brother. I made coffee, and then we all had breakfast. We sort of dilly-dallied around, and I took a shower and dressed. After I finished it was almost time to leave for the Chinese buffet.

We got there much faster than anticipated. Meanwhile, mashfanficchick and her mother picked up the Kid and joined us there. So we waited for them to show up before we went in. We got a table and set in to eating. This is a different Chinese buffet than we have been going to, the Kid wanted to try some place new. It was pretty good, I sort of pigged out on sushi.

After we finished eating, mashfanficchick and her mother went off to New Jersey, and we took the Kid home. And then we went back to my place and hung out and listened to Christmas music until it was time for Oldest Brother to take Middle Brother back to his group home.

After they left I Skyped the FWiB. We had a nice talk, and then after we got done I went into the bedroom to lie down and just putter on my phone. I also read the book of cat cartoons that mashfanficchick gave me. Very cute.

Then at 10 I fed the cats and turtle and had a snack, leftover cheese and crackers, and eggnog. And I just talked to Oldest Brother, as i do every night but don't usually mention, and everything is fine with him.

Oh, I forgot to mention yesterday. I got a facebook message from John Ivon! Very nice to hear from him.

And that has been Christmas. Tomorrow I took off from work too, and so I will be able to relax a little, and finish cleaning up from the party.

And as Tiny Tim said "May God bless us every one!"
