I've missed you guys and it seems like forever since I've had a chance to post; I've been lurking though. We celebrated Christmas with the in-laws last weekend and I've worked extra hours, taken care of a couple of mildly sick kids, wrapped presents, etc. since we returned.
It's funny...when I'm away from the Lex and the Halfway House for a few days, I always think I'm somewhat cured of my Robsession. I figure that since I haven't been able to check the boards or post messages for awhile...what difference does three or four more days make? Yeah...right.
Then I visit the Halfway House and see all the glorious stuff and funny messages you guys have posted and all that shiza goes right out the window.
, hi e-twin! Sorry about your Bears.
I was thrilled with the Titans and how they managed to somehow pull another win out of you-know-where. Unfortunately they lost Keith Bullock for the year so I'm pretty sure we'll have our hats handed to us by the Chargers on Christmas Day.
I hope you're enjoying having the kiddos out of school. Although it does make pre-Christmasey stuff somewhat chaotic with them underfoot...it's so nice not to worry about packing lunches, supervising homework, getting backpacks together, and driving to and from umpteen kids' activities.
, I loved your husband's remark about "giving you the Robgasms".
I've never forgotten that he was our first and one of the few, the proud, and the elite husbands/significant others to be named an honorary member of the Halfway House. We'll have to give him some type of commendation or special award for this.
I also nearly fell out of my chair laughing when I viewed the picture of the...um..."special toy" you posted.
That was so totally worth you getting a scolding.
enjoy your vacation and your brief respite from your firsties. As the mother of a 2nd-grader and a 4th-grader, I hereby rename the Christmas holidays "Official and Well-Deserved Teacher-Sanity-Preservation Days".
, Hi! Hope you're doing well and that you don't have to work too much over the Christmas holidays. I'm working tomorow, but all of the therapists are hoping to see as many patients as we can, as quickly as we can in the early morning so we can hopefully leave by noon.
, congrats on making the Dean's List! You go girl!
I can't believe all the snow some of you are getting. It sounds beautiful. We never have snow on Christmas in middle Tennessee...usually rain or an oddly warmish 60 degrees.
I noticed that Clipped Wings and Inked Armor
updated but haven't had a chance to read it yet. Merry Freakin' Christmas to us!
Everyone who is stressing about the last minute shopping, the baking, the wrapping, the cooking, the stocking stuffing...please take a collective deep breath and remember the importance of the season and what Christmas is all about. And if that doesn't work, just say screw it and go look at Robcrack or read some fanfic instead.
This Remember Me
still may not be completely new, but I've never seen it...
Love Rob in the plaid
Just in case I don't have a chance to post again tomorrow, I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and enjoys a relaxing day celebrating with family and friends. For those of you traveling, please be safe. I hope all of you know what a blessing you are and what a blast it has been getting to know you through the Halfway House and our mutual obsession.
