 I've always liked the day after Christmas better than Christmas itself.  The relatives are gone, the rush is over, everything's quiet, and you can sleep all day and play with your new presents.

It was a great Christmas.  From the second the new shop opened, we've been crazy-busy.  We never had time to put up a tree, and we cleaned the house and put dinner together in five hours.  Once that was done, all that was important was that we had each other and a day without work.  My family came over and we watched Snakes on a Plane during dinner.  It was perfect.  My brother challenged me to a wrestling match in the living room, but relented after I lunged at him.

Todd got me a Kindle, which I can't put down.  I got him a Nokia N900, which he can't put down.  My dad, in a fit of awesome, got me new knee pads for derby (mine are falling apart) and a sweatshirt that says "Roller Derby saved my soul."  My mom made me some perfect skirts for work, my brother gave me assorted books, and life is just plain good.

We're starting to plan a honeymoon, probably for Spring.  We're looking at Amsterdam.

I've missed livejournal.  I'd kind of abandoned it for the instant gratification of Facebook, but it's good to be back.

I'm not surprised you can still kick your brother's ass.
