Why am I still awake???

Ok, so I guess I have a confession to make. I suffer from insomnia, especially when Matt isn't around. I know that I should be getting a good night's sleep, especially since Kate is going to come over in the morning to help me clean up a bit, but I can't seem to find it in myself to relax and go to bed. I think I'll do what I usually do, and that is watch a tv show on Netflix until I fall asleep.

Well, anyways, I've really enjoyed getting Christmas cards from everyone who has sent them. Each day this last week we have received at least one card. Kate's came in the mail Saturday, and while it wasn't a surprise b/c I helped make them, I was still amazed when I saw it. Matt was too. He says Kate is crazy. When you get the card, you'll know what he is talking about. But, half the fun is in the making, right? And they do look awesome. I think she should go into business.
I also got a card from Uncle Johnny. It was good to read up on their past year. I hope we get to see them when they drive up the coast this summer.
I found a package that was delivered yesterday by UPS under the carport today. It is a good thing that it has been cool out, because the buffalo meat inside was not completely thawed (thank goodness). Matt's aunt runs a buffalo farm somewhere in Washington, and they sent us a little meat. I was thinking of having chicken for Christmas dinner, but now it may be buffalo instead. I can't wait to try it. I remember getting buffalo burgers from Fort Hall a long time ago. I think I remember that they were pretty good. So, thank you Dewain and Robin and Sanford for the lovely gift.
We also got cards from both Matt's grandma and step-grandma and grandpa on his father's side. They are so thoughtful. One grandma even sent an anniversary card. How cool is that?
Oh, and I got graduation cards from Mom and Tracey, too. Made me feel really special. (Oh, I keep forgetting. Lani called me on my graduation day to wish me congratulations. I don't know if you know how much that means to me, Lani. Thank you. Knowing you were thinking of me means so much.)
Well, that about does it. Tomorrow Kate and I are going to clean this house and whip it into shape for company after Christmas. Heck, maybe we'll even decorate the tree.... We'll have to see. I'll take pictures if we do. The bathroom is so close to being finished that I can almost taste it. We just have a few installations to do tomorrow, like the toilet, vanity, medicine cabinet, and light fixture, as well as shower curtain rod, towel holders, toilet paper holder, and I think that is it. Cool, huh? I'll post some after pictures, I promise.
