So, yeah. We’re sitting here watching the Alamo Bowl because we live in Nebraska, and that’s what folks in the Big Red State do. We’re not wearing any red, but I’m knitting with red yarn. Although it’s red for a totally different team. (Hi Phil! Pretend you didn’t read that, ok?)

Wow. Christmas Day was the first day since January 1, 2005 that we did absolutely nothing. No work. No household projects. No work. No errands. Did I mention that we did no work? I forgot what it is like to take a day off and just hang out. It was awesome.
