Happy New Year

Wow, it's been a while since I posted. Life has been busy to say the least. I'll fast forward to the holidays just to save time and skip over all the depressing, boring crap (save it for a therapist).

The Tiny Terrorist Invade Disneyland.

This year my dear sister D took my offspring to California for their winter break from school. The entire break. (Yes she is somewhat crazy) Meaning the progeny spent Hanukkah and New Years Eve at Disney. They also went to the beach, saw the Walk of Fame, put their little hands and feet in prints around Mann's Chinese Theater, saw Miley Cyrus (gag) getting in/out of her limo twice, saw the Hollywood sign, got to fly first class part of the trip and just had the best damn time two kids could have for nearly two weeks and still want to come home to their mother. The Tiny Terrorists are so damn lucky to have an aunt who adores them so much. I am lucky my sister is so good to my girls and is someone I can trust with my kids.

D sent me photos just about every day of their adventures (of which there were many) and I can't wait to sit with her and look at them all.

So that freed me up to... WORK! and do lots of it! I did have time to spend a night of Hanukkah with Sarge and his boys. We made an awesome dinner, opened pressies, watched a movie and had awesome chocolate cheesecake. It was probably the best Hanukkah I've had in many years. And then I worked more! My manager took 4 days off after Christmas starting with the Saturday after Christmas, leaving me, the Assistant Bakery Manager, in charge. yikes. I managed to not burn down the bakery. But it wasn't easy! New Year's Eve was again one of the best one's I've had in years. Quiet, low key, dinner, games, movie with Sarge and his boys.

2008 has been a really weird year. The end of the year being so much better than the middle of the year. I'm hoping that the good stuff is a trend that will continue through 2009. And for you too, may 2009 be a really weird, wonderful year!

I'll post photos of cake and stuff tomorrow - promise!
