So yesterday was interesting. Somehow we got talked into switching back to Comcast from Verizon for our 3-fer package deal. I don’t know why we agreed to the Monday after Christmas to do the whole switcharoo thing. You know, with the house in it’s Christmessy disaster mode and all. It took the cable guy over three hours to get everything hooked up, and after he left, phone and internet was kaput. It took a couple more hours for him to return to discover he’d connected a bad cable to the modem. Of course the internet connection crapped out again just when I was getting ready to do some serious blogging. Murphy’s Law. They had to reset the modem remotely while I was on the phone with them, which cut me off since it took out the phone during that time, too. Three times.
Yeah, I’m thinking maybe switching back to save 50-bucks a month may not have been all that worth it. I’ll keep you posted.
What about that crazy snow storm out this way Sunday? We were expecting 6-12 inches, but Mother Nature decided to bypass us completely. Princess Nagger was disappointed she didn’t get any snow to play in. I have to admit I was a little disappointed when I saw the little bit of snow that had fallen was blown away by the strong winds. It’s still early in the season, though, maybe we’ll get one good playable snow before spring. Fingers crossed.
Princess Nagger has been loving the Nintendo DSi XL Santa brought her. She’s been wanting one for a long time, so it was fun to see how much fun she’s been having with it the last few days. To save some money, I picked up a couple of DSi games off eBay that were also marked ‘from Santa’ – I didn’t realize that when you save the game, it saves it to the game cartridge. Princess Nagger almost busted me on that one, she wanted to know why there was a game saved as ‘Zachary” and one saved as “Fuzzball”. I told her Santa’s elves must have tried out the game before sending them to her. Luckily she thought that was a perfectly logical explanation, and went around the rest of the day saying “Silly elves.”
Not to have Santa get all the credit for cool gifts, of course I found a ton of dinosaur stuff to give her, which she also loved. She had a cool dinosaur community all set up in the middle of the living room. Now to be sure not to accidentally step on the community. Some of those dinosaurs look awfully fierce.
Hubby got me a wine filter for one of my presents:
I got to play with it over the weekend when I filtered and bottled 60 bottles of wine. Now I’m anxious to start some new batches so I can play with it again – it’s so much better than the cheap one I had that leaked all over the counter. Didn’t lose any precious nectar this time.
I was spoiled this year for sure – hubby found some awesome stuff for me that I didn’t even ask for, but he paid attention and knew I’d love them. And I do. He did great! Like Princess Nagger said, best Christmas ever! I still need to download pictures from my camera, but I’ll get to it at some point.
How about you? How was your Christmas? Did you get things on your wish list, or if you didn’t have a wish list, did you have an enjoyable time with family?
