Hope everyone had a merry Christmas. We did, though it didn’t turn out the way we had planned. We didn’t end up spending that time at the resort we mentioned in the previous post. Apparently somebody thought it would be cool to not inform us that we needed to have a combined income of at least $50,000 a year in order to take advantage of this specific promotion. I didn’t even know it was a promotion, I thought it was just a stay that we had been given. Well, the resort failed to mention that aspect in the many months I had been talking with them about it, and so the morning before we were going to leave they called and let us know. At least we didn’t drive out there for nothing.
The rest of the holiday trip went well though. We headed up to my grandmother’s house a bit earlier than expected and picked up my aunt Tracy along the way. We had a wonderful family dinner. Tori is happy with her Christmas gift: a fashionable watch; I am happy with my gift: Guitar Hero III. She has been wearing it pretty much all the time, and I have been playing it pretty much… ok not all the time, but at least once a day.
So it’s back to work for us both. Now we are just preparing for next semester and enjoying the break from class work.
Happy New Year!
