Merry Christmas!

I have recovered (marginally) from my food coma, so before the feasting begins again, I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!  Dean, the pups, and I have been lounging about the house, not doing much of anything.  Dean and I had a nice dinner yesterday to celebrate Christmas Eve, and we headed over to our favorite Indian buffet for lunch today.  I am taking the next few days off to unwind, so you won’t see another post until Sunday.  I plan on reading, playing Monster Busters (I can’t stop playing!), and cuddling with the puppers.  I hope you have an enjoyable day!  Did Santa bring you everything you wished for??
