A fun week it was, with Christmas in the mix and all. The tent is still up, beckoning us to spend the night again. A new Christmas eve tradition? This being the first annual?
But there was certainly more to the week than going all Donner Party...
For one thing, we somehow managed to win Magnum's office football pool again. Who needs Powerball?!
Chaco came home Monday afternoon. We've had a few rowdy game nights, gone shopping at the rowdy mall, played rowdily (word?) with new toys and such. Maybe time to cut back on the Christmas sugar?
When Chaco went back to his apartment Friday night, I got to see it for the first time. I've been wanting to check it out, but since it's pretty much a college bachelor pad, I didn't want to go all MOM on him with all the guys at home.
Nice digs, I must say! It's really spacious and quite a step up from the freshman dorm (which isn't saying a whole lot). He's got beautiful views of Pikes Peak and the city, and I think his kitchen is bigger than ours at home (which isn't saying a whole lot). And I was impressed with how tidy and well stocked it was.
Chaco, Wolfgang, and I all got our first semester grades posted, and if we were in middle school, we'd all get bumper stickers!
Wolfgang was pet sitting a neighbor friend's cat last week. We've sat for "Mittens" before when the family travels at the holidays and vacations. I hadn't seen her since last Christmas.
When Wolfgang did an overnight ski trip last week, I took over Mitten duty. I walked into the house, flipped on the light switch, and BAM:
Mittens has put on a few! In fact, this photo doesn't really do justice to her voluptuousness. Anyway, it was nice of her to agree to being featured today, and maybe help inspire cutting back on the Christmas sugar. Since Kat left *sniff*, we haven't had a good fat cat pic in a while.
So a nice week, and the weather's been nice, so I even managed an easy trip to sex change town to visit with my parents for several hours.
... and then there's this new toy, but it requires its own blog post I think. (Plus I haven't told Tessa yet).
Here's hoping all of my blog friends have a great end to 2013 and start to 2014!
