Merry Christmas – 10 Days Vacation Begins

Merry Christmas everyone.

I started 10 days vacation yesterday (Christmas Eve).  I will go back to work Jan 3rd 2011.

I am super excited about this vacation.

Here’s a quick run-down on how it started.  It’s been very fun so far.

1 day before the vacation. But my vacation unofficially started today.  We had a short day.  Also, my boss bought pizza and beer for us.  We felt so festive, nobody really worked today. 

My boss should have bought more pizza.   I only ate 2 slices of pizza and pretended I was full and happy.  In fact, I was a little irritated that all pizzas were gone when I still wanted a couple more slices.

Officially I am thankful for pizza.  I enjoyed it.  But, I would have enjoyed it a lot more if there were enough amount of food for everyone to fully stuff ourselves.  When buying treats, the goal is to have left-overs.  Having left overs is the only indication that everyone fully enjoyed the meal.

I came home and did 3 loads of laundry.  I felt good that I am starting the vacation with empty laundry hampers.

I put out the work table at my living room.  I used the table to wrap Christmas gifts.  I listened to Christmas music all night.

We had a family gathering at my sister’s house.   We had a good meal.  My nephews and a niece liked my gifts.  The oldest nephew seemed as if he was expecting me to buy him a new car.  I guess I raised the bar too high in the past (before I got my salary reduced).

Everyone stayed for the night.  The party will continue to tomorrow.  But I apologized to my family and headed back home.

I would like to stay home alone for Christmas and enjoy this vacation.

I came back home 10:30pm.  It’s good to be home.

I did "Coins in the Laundry Room" again this morning.  I guess this is becoming an annual event.  I feel good when I do this.

A lot of basketball games going on today.

I will brew coffee right now.  I will glaze the ham later.

talk to you later.

Merry Christmas~!!
