26 December - Only 364 days until Christmas!
Had a great Christmas day with the family. Spent most of the day putting together a Barbie house for the girls. I can't believe how labor intensive this thing was, but I guess Matel Toys saved us money by passing the work from the Chinese labor camp down to me. Can't complain, it kept me away from kitchen. Lots of baking, which meant lots of food to eat. I sort of feel like this guy right now... one more breath mint and I'm going to explode.
I can't wait for the base gym to reopen. I'm going to be living in that place for 2006. I thought of pulling out the old Richard Simmons 'Sweat'n to the Oldies' tapes, but then I came across this little video of when little Richie was on 'Who's Line Is It Anyway?'. Now I think I'll wait for the gym to open.
(Here's the link, just don't spew the coffee. It's a funny one)
I've got to spend the day doing something constructive, whatever that may be. Maybe study Russian and watch some good ol' history channel shows. Of course I'll have to do some touch-up work on the Barbie house, but it beats the hell out of working today.
Hope you had a good one.

Do we have to do something constructive - on our "off" day? I thought I'd just stay in my gowntail, eat leftovers (and candy), and veg... I think I like my plan better than yours.1:21 PM
Merry Christmas! It sounds wonderful. I'm glad you had a real nice day. Thank you for all you've done for your country, your family, and for peace. :)4:26 PM
Daddies and Barbie houses...what a combo. Glad to hear you figured it out.
As far as food goes. I solved the problem. Cook food all damn day then you'll have no desire to eat whatsoever. Happened at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
As far as the base gym is concerned. I worked out Friday and that went well. Come Tuesday and everybody and their mother was there. Got a workout in, but my goodness was it out of control.
