But it all came together, more or less. I picked up two strings of blue LED lights at Target at 30% off, so now our porch is lit with an eerie blue light. I put up the animated white light deer, though wires broke, the doe only has her back half lit up, the buck only his front half. They look pretty pathetic half lit up like that. We got a tree, and even baked a batch of Cutout Christmas cookies.
We did go to a Caroling party on Friday at newspaper-mom's, and it was an oddly guilty pleasure to sing Carols mentioning Jesus and God and all that unPC stuff.
I got ten year old Ticket to Tide, and it sure is a good game. You try to connect cities on a map of America with rail lines for tickets you have drawn, by drawing various colored train car cards. It's a nailbiter, since the ticket scoring doesn't happen until the end of the game, and you never are sure just where you are in the scoring. We've played four games, and we may not be able to play again until Sunday, because my parents are taking the girls to their hometown Friday. Yay, Mrs. Ha and I will have some alone time.
Boy, the march of the Ha's into the future just doesn't stop. Earlier this month Mrs. Ha got her first email address. Now, my dad is getting DSL, which should come with a free WiFi router, so I'll need to help set up his laptop with wifi. They were complaining about how long it takes to download email from AOL at dial up speeds.
The weather continues it's weirdness. We had an inch of snow overnight, it should all be melted by tomorrow. I may need to get my bike up and running again.
Work is darn quiet, which is good, as at allows me to catch up on stuff. Lots of people are off, but I chose to take my vacation days earlier, I like the slow times here. What do you do between Christmas and New Years?
