Christmas Eve 2006.

It’s a beautiful sunny day here outside of Philadelphia. The temperature is in the mid 50s. I’m not wearing a coat. It certainly doesn’t feel like Christmas Eve, but we’re still full of the spirit.

Earl and I decided to do some last minute shopping this afternoon, picking up some house warming gifts for some relatives to give at the party tonight. After struggling in a way to find the spirit for the past month, it seems to have both hit us like a ton of bricks. There’s no complaints from either of us.

We stopped at the new Philadelphia Park Casino where they have slot machines. I walked out with slightly more money than I went in with after only 10 minutes of spinning wheels. I like it when that happens. And to think we were only there to pick up a gift certificate.

Tonight we’ll be arriving home around midnight or so. I’m looking forward to the drive and I’m looking forward to the festivities that lie ahead.

Merry Christmas to all!
