Christmas day is at a close and I'm now logging on the brand new Gateway computer my dad bought for my mother as a Christmas gift that she will never use because she has her own. But all the good things my father does for her throughout the year makes up for it. And I just found out that my parents read my logs, so I have to be careful what I say. They laughed about serving me tea... then cider... then coffee... then tea again. And then they served me all of the above a zillion times this week. I only log the truth!
Christmas was nice and Santa was good to me. Kojian, this is for you: I got a Simpsons puzzle and a Simpsons PICTIONARY. That's right, when I go back to Armenia, I'm taking it with me and we are going to play. You better be there. Like the rest of the world, my family thinks I'm obssessed with the Simpsons. At least I know I'm the normal one and the rest of the world is crazy. :)
I'm fat again after losing all the weight from Thanksgiving. It's hard to stay skinny when my mother cooks SOOOO good, though my dad would have everyone believe he is the chef. It was a wonderful Christmas... and a white one. Last night (Christmas Eve) just as everyone arrived, the snow started falling and by morning the area was blanketed in snow.
Tomorrow I head to New Jersey for the Annual AYF Convention, a 5 day meeting. It's always straight back to work. This will be nine years for me. One reason I like it is because it brings all of the active members together and forces them to innovate, plan and strategize. The best ideas come out of this meeting. Then we all get to party afterward for New Years.
So at the end of this day, as I am surrounded by love and family, I hope everyone else is too.
