No More Waiting

I'll admit. I'll admit it freely. I don't like to act or behave like a grown up.I never have and I never will. I'm worse at Christmas.

Luckily so is my wife.

Last night, the 22nd, we opened all our presents to each other. Every one of them. We rationalized and talked ourseves in to it. Xmas eve we would be gone as soon as Ruth got done at work. To my parents house, then to her Brothers around midnight, her parents the next morning and back to her brother's for dinner. We wouldn't be home till late xmas night.And since she finished wrapping stuff for everyone else....

So we did it. We opened them all. And then we stayed up and played her new Green Day cd and looked at all our goodies. And I have to say Ruth did a great job shopping for me. She even remembered the Batman toys.
She seemed pretty happy with what I got for her too.

So it's true, I have no self control. But that's ok, either does my wife.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend doing what ever it is you do.




So, Maybe sunday we can all compare what we got!

And remember, he knows if you've been naughty or nice, And I'm not talking about Ashcroft....

Jon, it's okay to open early. For the first time in 13 years of living together, Diane and I have been giving each other our presents all week.

On a more crass note, we're not going to my brother's until next weekend, so I get to take advantage of those after Christmas sales. Ho Ho Freakin' Ho!

I opened all my stuff after Thanksgiving...that's just kind of pathetic isn't it? And Batman toys? Very nice. I got Spiderman toys myself.
