Aren't the two days after Christmas kind of sad? It is always a little bit of a let-down after Christmas is over... all the work and celebrating, and then done in one day. And they stopped playing the 24/7 Christmas music the day after Christmas! Sheesh! It's like a bandaid... they just rip it right off. [Eww.]
Three highlights of AE Jones' Christmas:
1. I got to Skype with my little sis (the Russian Beauty) in Moscow. We thought we'd only get to talk to her on the phone, but we actually got to SEE her! Made my week. Bless Skype's heart.
2. My brother's basement flooded on Thursday. We rushed over there and helped suck out the unending water, and rip out carpet and baseboards. It was crazy. My heart hurt seeing my brother and his little family have to go through that. But, in the end, it was pretty amazing to see how family and friends gathered to help in a time of need. Really quite amazing, actually.
3. And... guess what I gave my parentals for Christmas? My last car payment! I borrowed some money from them last year to buy my car, and I made my last payment to them on Christmas day. It was in a box and wrapped up with a pretty bow on top. It was a hefty check... pretty much all I'm worth. But, I am now debt-free, and I completely own my car.
Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas as well! The celebrating isn't over, so keep enjoying this week!
