Just a little post-holiday update

We spent Christmas Eve with Zen's family and the day after Christmas with my family. I spent Christmas day wrapping and putting together a toy I got for my nephew, then I went to my folks house and made baked ziti and mashed potatoes as our vegetarian options for our dinner (my sister is a vegetarian). Zen went to his mom's for his yearly 15 minutes with his kids. Things went well with Zen's family. They are a little more "tease"-y than I like - it always seems on the verge of mean-spirited, especially from his brother-in-law (who also enjoys pissing off the cat). My family gathering went well except that my sister bailed at the last minute, and didn't even tell us she was bailing. She just didn't show up, and when my brother texted to ask if she was coming, she said she had previous plans with friends who were in from out of town (I mostly know who her friends are, and I'm not sure who this would be). Also not sure why she made plans in the first place since we had planned a while ago to get together the day after. I am hopeful that she really did have a thing to do and wasn't just bailing because Zen was going to be there.

This morning was one of *those* mornings. I decided I wanted a toasted bagel. I put it in the toaster, went to do some stuff, came back and it was charred. I adjusted the level, put another bagel in, and went to do some stuff. I popped it up early and it wasn't done, so I pushed it back down again. When I popped it up again? Charred. The third one I kept an eye on and STILL I almost burned it.

Then I had to go put air in my tire, because the nag light was on in my car. I went to get gas, and then drove over to their air machine... which was out of order. Went to another place, theirs was out of order too. Went to a third place, they didn't HAVE an air machine. Went to a fourth place and they had one that appeared to be functional, but it was placed right next to a parking space - which was occupied. So I had to wait for the person to come back and leave so I could park there and get air. What should have taken 2 minutes took more than 20, but fortunately the traffic on the highway was light so I wasn't *too* late for work.

Fortunately the rest of the day has been fine. I ordered pizza, so hopefully all will go well with that. :) LJ comments, like everyone else's apparently, are REALLY slow, so I'm going to try to get caught up. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend, whatever you did!
