Christmas Party Loot

Tonight I went to a Christmas dinner that was followed by your classic White Elephant exchange. The largest gift was a tire. The oddest one was a large Indian dagger. The cutest was a Santa suit apron. I am really excited about my gift, I had to steal it. I got a hardcover copy of A Thousand Splendid Suns. I had it on hold at the library but that was going to take forever. I have already read The Kite Runner so I am excited to read this one. I don't know when I will get to reading because I am reading 3 books right now; The Miracle of Forgiveness, Harry Potter (#2 Sorry I can't recall the name, this is the first time I've read the series), and The Zookeeper's Wife.

I was very careful about not eating too much at the party and I am proud of myself because I am still making up for all I ate over the Thanksgiving weekend.

My DH got a stack of lined paper and he was super excited because he needed it for his classroom. He is a 3rd grade teacher. He got excited about paper but I don't blame him because my loot is paper too, just more interesting because it has words.

I am going to finish a movie I started called Breach. My older sister J reccommended it to me. It's slow and quiet, sometimes that's just the perfect movie for me. Last week I watched Jeremiah Johnson and except for the music I really enjoyed it. We don't have regular TV so we just watch movies we get from Blockbuster in the mail. My Q is pretty empty so if anyone has any movies they love, send it my way. I do not watch rated R movies.
