... and I am! I'm in Virginia. Got here yesterday morning, thanks to a very nice flight via United. I feel like I have been here already for a long time. I've done a lot in less than 48 hours.
It snowed yesterday. My mom tells me that it has been brutally cold, but it isn't really right now. I had to sweep the snow off the car this morning (because my sister is making my nephew park his new Jeep inside so she can lock him in/know where he is at all times). There's just a few inches of snow. I saw deer today. My sister has stopped feeding them in our yard because mice eat the grain/corn and then head inside for someplace warm to sleep... ew.
I bought my nephew a subwhoofer from Crutchfield and had to return it. I forgot that it would invalidate the warranty - or so my sister tells me. I think it might have more to do with teenager noise factor and distracted driving. If you haven't shopped at Crutchfield, they've got great electronics and good prices.
I wish someone had bought me a subwhoofer when I was a teenager and the radio in my 78 Trans Am was barely making it. I miss that big, badass, noisy, flashy car. It rocked. I bought it from a current brigadier in the Kuwait Fire Brigade. He was in his 20's then and still had all of his hair. tee hee.
So, we have 2 trees in the house (tree huggers!), one is fake and the other is real. They both ba-gorgeous. I am home for cwimmas and it really feels like it.
