Every year for -- I don't know how long -- I've taken some vacation time during Christmas Break to spend with the kids. This year's vacation has been anything but. The first two days I spent cleaning (it's amazing what a mess Christmas makes) and then two days of shopping (my daughter can't wait to spend every dime she received on gift cards), and today there will be more cleaning.
Well, tomorrow should be more interesting. We're going to a basketball game in Stillwater. We've never done anything on New Year's Eve, so I've been looking forward to it.
