Oh ... look at all of the goodies ... and the pain ....

Monday, December 10, 2007
Today my Christmas box from my mom arrived (whoot!), and inside were all sorts of goodies! (I hope I was actually allowed to open the box mom... wanted to make sure everything survived the long plane flight). There were candy canes, butter fudge, a couple of those microwave molten chocolate cakes (uh... can we say weekend breakfast?), Nutella and the piece de resistance .... REAL maple syrup! And of course, all of my Christmas presents nicely wrapped up (yes mom, they are still wrapped and in the box. I promise, I won't open them until the 25th).

On my journey to get the parcel from the post office, I managed to lose my footing on a slick hard packed patch of snow and went down rather hard on my knee, where I managed to give myself a rather good cut and a nice hole in my jeans (always great when a rock breaks your fall ... or cushions your impact to the ground). So right now, my knee is nicely swollen and turning a nice dark shade of purple. It hurts, but nothing that a couple of Motrin's can't numb. All part of living in the North.

Hope the kneee heals fast. Its a pretty painful part to get bashed on the ice. I've done my fair share of "ice dancing" over the years so I know exactly how it feels.

Goodies are part of the package you know! I didn't have enough patience to wrap everything!! So, you've had a preview of good things to come.

A big mouth full of Nutella will make that knee feel better too!
