I had the grandkids over at my house today to open birthday/Christmas presents.

Yeah, it’s a little early, but I’m not sure when we’ll all be together again during the holidays. Shelby got a Polly Pockets something-or-other, Shannon got some tiny WWF action figures and a wrestling ring — all of which folded into a neat lil’ suitcase-style carrier! — and Shane and Samantha got some cold, hard cash. (In-between, I got a bit flustered trying to figure out how to put $15 worth of minutes on Samantha’s GO Phone and $15 worth of songs on Shane’s iPod Shuffle.)

After the kids all cleared out, my new Grover seemed wiped out!


Happy holidays, everybodeee!

(Does it say anything significant about me that my copy of “The Monster at the End of This Book” is right next to “Rubyfruit Jungle” by Rita Mae Brown on my recently reorganized bookshelf?)
