Sorry to hear about your Aunt and BF's flood! Sounds like a hectic Christmas!

Nice Christmas for me. Lots of cooking, lots of eating, lots of Boxing Day sales (went slightly over my budget) and lots of reading. DD completely spoiled me with really fabulous gifts. I'm looking forward to a quieter week and turkey leftovers.

Sorry to hear about your aunt, girly_girl. Hope she will recover soon. Must have been a bit of an emergency in the midst of the festivities.

CHAOS!!!! We had breakfast at my place Christmas day and then had to prepare lunch for BFs family. Then we headed an hour away for Christmas dinner. Boxing day we went to visit family one hour away and then to another Aunt's place for dinner. Welll BF left before dinner because he wasn't feeling well. He got home to a flooded basement!! Water main broke and flooded the place over Christmas! Then Aunt tripped and spilled hot turkey grease down her leg and fell on her side! Thankfully my sister is almost done her nursing degree so she was able to do a makeshift bandage while I booted out to the only pharmacy open to buy burn cream and advil! Egads! Didn't get home until 11 last night, then had to go to bf's place with bottled water and garbage bags (he couldn't leave because to top everything off, the shut off valve at the street broke and the city had to send out emergency crews to shut it off and he had to be there).
So now its fun with insurance!
I can't believe I made it . . .

We had a nice weekend.
