After two days absence, the PAgent womenfolk returned this afternoon. I was able to get the house clean before they got back, and by clean I mean picked up and vacuumed, and all the dishes washed. That may not sound like much of an accomplishment, but it’s been a while since we’ve been caught up, what with commitments, illnesses and such.

We ran out and got our Christmas tree this evening, it’s a nice one, but we picked it out before checking the price list. Yowza.

I’ve been looking through cookbooks for something to take to a vegetarian potluck this week, and I decided on a basic sour cream cheesecake. It will give me an opportunity to use the springform pan I got this year.

We’ve been shopping for a digital camera for a while, and I decided I wanted to have one to take pictures over the holidays. So I ordered one this evening. I should have it before Christmas.

And….my daughter had a hissy fit tonight, butted heads with her mother, and snarled at her brother. He went to bed sniffling and broken-hearted, he missed her so much while she was gone. She went to bed furious and crying. I’m exhausted. So…everything is back to normal.
