Giving and Receiving

December 26, 2001

Well, I've opened almost all my gifts now (there'll be a couple sweatshirts when I get to my grandparents' house, but I kinda know those are coming). Everything I got was good (i.e. what I'd asked for) so even though I wasn't tearing around the living room playing with everything like I was 20 years ago, I still enjoyed opening the presents.

Everyone seemed to like what I got them too. Although all the ones I thought were sure things got a more lukewarm reaction, while all the ones I was sure I'd fouled up were great. Just goes to show how well I understand my hyper-extended family...

Anyway, everyone who got or gave gifts for their particular holiday, I hope yours went as well as mine.
