It’s the Most Harried Time of the Year

Well, the Xmas insanity is finally over; I can't say I'm not relieved. We had a nice one, though. I'd wished to spend more time with my family, but as always, by time we get there - having been, since the day before, with The Worm's family - we are exhausted and weary of socializing. We're naturally hermits, so three days straight of being surrounded by people and visiting really does us in.

It was Sweetpea's first Xmas, and I think she enjoyed it. Using a little lawnmower-like toy she received, the little shit was walking - though holding onto to the toy, she got the idea down and made quite a few steps. She'll be walking in a week or two, I bet. She is something else.

I got amazing gifts from my Mom and sister, Tweeze, as always. Clothes and accessories - things I rarely buy for myself but am always in desperate need of. As always, too, Mom gets me the prerequiste Witches' Calendar; I cannot make it through the year without it. I didn't get it one year, and I bemoaned its absence for the next 12 months. At a glance, I can know where major planets (especially the Moon) are at; for that alone, it's a gem. I got a pair of awesome pilsner glasses and a set of balloon wine glasses from my brother and RoseRed. Pa-Pa got us a huge and gorgeous chiminea - something we've been wanting for the patio for years now.

The Worm, my love, bought me an absolutely beautiful Journey Diamond Pendant (similar to this one). I wore it for the holidays; it's so very beautiful and I love it. No one has ever bought me jewelry before, and it's truly only the second piece of real jewelry that I own.

After gift-giving, we ate a delicious supper - and left. Everyone wanted us to stay longer, and I wish I'd had it in me to do so - but we were so tired, I had been attacked by a massive migraine, and we needed to let in and feed our neighbor's dogs that we're pet sitting.

Naturally, there was the huge absence of Guitar Rockstar...but I'll leave that for my next post.  Other than that, it was a very nice Christmas.

    A few things i have observed in terms of pc memory is the fact that there are requirements such as SDRAM, DDR and the like, that must fit in with the specific features of the motherboard. If the computer's motherboard is reasonably current and there are no main system issues, modernizing the storage space literally usually takes under one hour. It's one of the easiest laptop upgrade treatments one can visualize. Thanks for spreading your ideas.
