dreamin of a white christmas

Christmas Eve Day was a bit puzzling for us this year. It's the first year, I've actually been done with everything and didn't have any last minute shopping to do. Marc, Josh and I couldn't decide if we liked it this way or not...while it certainly was relaxing, at some level we also missed the hub-bub of the malls.

On another note...since we have Meredith (2) and Josh (13), the Santa topic was another one of perplexity. Josh understands what he needs to about Santa so this year, he was inducted into Santa's Elf Club that Marc and I have long been members of. He got to see the "other" side so to speak, and was amazed at what all the elves do behind the scenes...;). He was excited to see Meredith be so excited on Christmas morning.

Speaking of Josh, like I said...he's 13. His big gift from us this year was a computer...Pentium 4...DVD Reader, Burner...ya know the good kind.
Marc brought it home and did the setup on it, installed Office, etc. and then we stored it at our storage place so it couldn't be found by a 13 year old who just ~might~ be searching for gifts.

Marc got it from storage and brought it home, to our amazement it wouldn't connect to the network here at home. We didn't know why, it worked just fine when he did the setup on it...we played with it for a few hours that day. So you have to imagine this picture...it's Christmas Eve night at midnight...Marc and I have been up since 4am this morning...we are in our bedroom...Marc has the pc and his laptop on the bed, the monitor on the floor...the boxes around him on our bed, both dogs are in the bed upset that their routine is being thrown off kilter and I'm on the other side of the bed doing a couple last minute things. He was so frustrated and I felt so bad for him...I'm ignorant on networks, wireless networks, etc...all I could do was ask him questions which only frustrated him more. I thought we were never going to get a wink of sleep.

He finally got it all working...at 3am...~oy~...can you say T-I-R-E-D!
