I had one of the most relaxing holidays at home in a long time. The whole family was there plus extended family. My nephew Tobias is such a neat little kid. Smart, polite, fun, and loves Bob the Builder. Now that song is stuck in my head... Bob the Builder! (...YES WE CAN!).

I got everything I asked for, but what was neater to me was that I was able to give my brother (whose name I drew) stuff he really needed.

We had a lot of fun playing monopoly and scrabble. I got clobbered in monopoly, but won three times in scrabble, once with the word tepidity, using all of my letters.

What is to come of the next year? Time will tell. I hope (I bet like many) to take advantage of my health club membership, read a lot of books, and work less.
