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.
