Well I had just the best Christmas ever. It all started on Christmas Eve. We headed out to Church for our annual Christmas Eve Service. As we were approaching the Church, we noticed someone in the car next to us waiving frantically. It was my wife’s cousin. She doesn’t even live in the same town and we haven’t seen her in over a year. They had driven down for just a few hours to check out a location for a wedding for another relative. It was a spur of the moment decision on their part and they were only staying for a few hours so they didn’t let anyone know they were coming. So what are the odds that we would be driving down the same street at the same moment in time? Pretty slim if you ask me, almost miraculous.
The service was packed when we got inside because we spent a few minutes in the parking lot talking with this cousin. We ended up in the overflow area but did get a seat. The message was a little different as well looking at the first Christmas from a slightly different angle. It was about uncertain times and how Mary and Joseph must have been going through the same thing but their faith brought them through. It was a great message and made for a nice Christmas Eve.
Christmas was very quiet in our house which is all I really asked for. There may not be peace on earth but there was peace in our little world. We had less presents under our tree than ever before but it was a wonderful Christmas anyway. We had a great meal around 1130 and then decided to go see a movie. I don’t know who started this thing of releasing movies on Christmas but it has really caught on. The movie theater was packed and we had to settle for our third choice of movies. We ended up seeing Sherlock Holmes. I thought it was pretty good. There was a dark plot but in the end the bad guys didn’t prevail which was good. There was a little bad language and only one brief (back) nudity scene but the plot made it unsuitable for really young children.
After the movie we went and visited relatives and ate again. It seems that all we did was eat over the holidays. Which brings me to today; Its’ D day here and the D stands for Diet. As of today I am officially on a diet. And this time I mean it. I know what you are thinking; I have heard this before but this time it’s for real. Mark my words I am going to lose weight and I will start today since I have a dentist appointment this afternoon and most likely won’t be able to eat tonight. So wish me luck. I will keep you posted on my progress.
Oh we also saw something about the Morgans or something like that over the weekend. It too was good and had a great ending. (for a chick flick) I am back at work this morning but the rest of you have a great day,
