Vacation: I've been lazing around the house all day. We went grocery shopping, and tomorrow, I'll be making chocolate chip cookies. Saturday morning, I get to make the macaroni and cheese for my family's Christmas dinner. I feel bad, because this means we're going to be at Mark's family's dinner mainly in time for dessert. Urgh. I guess it had to happen, though, that the dinners would collide, some year. I hope they will leave some of Mark's favorite food for him. Good news, though--Our friend Tom is joining us for Christmas at Mark's family's house.
Harry Potter: I pre-ordered my copy of Book #6, for $12 off the regular price! If you haven't bought yours yet, go to Amazon, and buy it while the discount is still on.
