I receive several Christmas letters each year. I love/hate each one for different reasons: The "My Family and therefore I am Awesome" letter that makes my friend's families seem like "The Brady Bunch" when they are all more (and I mean this literally) like the "Modern Family" family. The "Too Much Information" letter that gives a blow-by-blow descriptions of every malady and procedure that has occurred during the past year. Did I really need to read about your colonoscopy in your holiday letter - really (you know who you are)! The "My Kids Are Better Than Your Kids" Letter which lists each child's accomplishments, awards and sometimes even grades - come on! I of course can top that with the "Our Dogs are Better than your Dog" letter any time! The "Travelogue" letter that leads me to believe that some of my friends don't have day jobs (you know who you are too!).
I love including a few pictures in our cards each year. I'm sure family and friends are updating their blogs now with the "Not Another Jim and Kent Picture with.....those dogs" Well hold on you don't have to put up with it for long - I'm just about at the age where I'll be sending out the "We're Getting Old and Fat So We'll Spare the Photos" letter which simply gives a brief update on what's going on minus any evidence of deteriorating hair or expanding waistlines!
Happily married (well - domestic partnered), Still gay and it's awesome! No kids, cool dogs. Same great jobs, same home. Garden grows, marathons a plenty, travels galore and great friends. Still blogging at: http://www.jim-groundcover.blogspot.com. Come visit the beautiful northwest! Life is good, we miss you - Merry Christmas!
