R&R DOES NOT, APPARENTLY, STAND FOR REST & RELAXATION

More like "Rarin' & Roarin'"...I need a vacation after my "vacation" and I'm not even done with it yet! Zoooom! This is the first evening in 8 days I've had a chance to really sit down at the computer and most of it has been frantically whipping the AWC web newsletter into shape for publication tomorrow on Sunday. We have
  • picked up John & Simone at the train station and taken them final Christmas shopping
  • baked Reindeer Poop and Christmas sugar icing cookies and made Rice Krispie Holly Bars
  • gone out for sushi dinner and watched The Commitments, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and The Muppet Movie
  • celebrated my mother-in-law's birthday
  • celebrated Julafton complete with julbord, Kalle Anka, and a visit from Tomten
  • celebrated Christmas Day the American way complete with stockings, presents from abroad, and turkey with all the fixings
  • played Scattergories and Taboo with much laughter
  • gone to the zoo for the day (in the rain) and then to friends for dinner
  • gone to dinner in Malmö at Restaurang Möllan, a place Anders has been telling me about for 12 years, and then to see Peps Persson in concert
  • hosted an AWC glögg and potluck fest for 27 people
  • taken John & Simone to the train station and then gone shopping and then attempted to take a nap and then given up and worked on the AWC website
Tomorrow ozswede and tallefjant are paying a quick overnight visit (yay!) and Sunday Anders has planned a feasty feast of festive proportions for New Year's Eve dinner with the two couples that will be spending it with us. Then I shall collapse muddy and exhausted for half a day and then? Back to work!
