A busy end to 2010, and let me tell you, I have never been happier to see a new year. Ever!
Chris came for the holidays, and we crammed as much activity into his visit as we could. The only downer for me is that Phil is off in basic training and so wasn't with us. =\ Still, we talked about him and imagined his take on different things that were going on, so it's almost as though he were with us, too.
Thanks to Chris's presence, I was able to finish Fallout 3, finally. =D Now I just have to play through the add-on packs, but the main story is done. Yay!
I've been doing laundry, dishes, and nibbling on leftovers all day. The house seems so quiet without Chris. I can see him lounging on the couch, playing Halo 3. Or in the kitchen, rummaging for snacks. Or upstairs in the back bedroom, helping me schlep furniture around. I'm glad he came out; I wish he were here all the time.
This year, I'm participating in the Ravelry group "Harry Potter Knitting/Crochet House Cup," despite not knowing much about Harry Potter at all. Kate was in the group last year, and talked so glowingly of her experiences (even the frustrating ones) that I decided to join, too. I sorted into Hufflepuff as a House, which makes sense as every quiz I've taken online points that way.
Except for the one that made me INFJ.
Anyway, will finish up some more laundry and then begin Jose's scarf. It's in gorgeously soft Malabrigo and will be a real treat to knit up for him! If I have any leftover yarn, I'll make him a hat, too. :)
