My Christmas Present

I’ve been AFK for a while, celebrating the holidays with my family.

My son said this was his best Christmas ever! Of course, he WOULD say that seeing as he got a MP3 player, a laptop, and a phone. But it was MY best Christmas ever too. I got this:


YAY!!!!!!!!! I finally have a laptop! Now if the fam starts annoying me while I’m trying to write, I can just leave the room. The only problem is this will probably be me soon:

What did you get for Christmas?

I’m a hermit?

Hubby and I were having a discussion yesterday when he said something that threw me for a loop. First, a little background:

My hubby is a hermit. He pouts like a 2 year-old when he has to go somewhere. He leaves the house about 6 times a year and 4 of those are for doctor appointments. Everyone fusses at him about it. His doctor, his parents, his siblings, me; we all think he spends too much time watching Star Trek and not enough time interacting with real people.

Back to yesterday. We were having a discussion about him being a recluse (translated: I was telling him he should get out of the house more. I was thinking of him. Okay, maybe he was driving me nuts again.) He then said this:

“You’re just as much a hermit as I am.”

What? No I’m not. I talk to people all the time. I spend time with friends. Sure it’s on the computer, but I interact. That’s what’s important, right?

He walked away with a smug look on his face. He got his point across and I left him alone about leaving the house.

Now that I’ve had time to think about it, I think I’ll start leaving the house more. But first I need to buy a laptop so all of my friends can come with me. 😉
