Christmas In February
Covid has fucked up a lot. We all know this, and we’re all dealing with it as best we can.
One way in which our lives around here got messed up by travel and gathering restrictions was that we could not have Christmas with my inlaws. First time ever we’ve missed being there, even when we lived halfway across the country we made it home. We hadn’t seen them since Thanksgiving! So, Christmas came and went, January came and went, and most of February too. But this week, our area relaxed a bit to gatherings of 10 (we were 6) so we went while the going was good. We were supposed to go Saturday, but while it was sunny here, they had a big snow storm there, so we waited another day and went yesterday. And even then, once we got there, we kept distance pretty well. But, especially for the kids yet for all of us: we got to visit home, and we got to have Christmas. It was so good to see them. Talk about making memories.
But you’re here for the musics – of course I got prezzies. Reviews will come in due time, so this is just a run-through, and what an incredible day it was (this is understatement).
You understand my excitement. My shock at this amount of goodness, especially for a guy who has been holding back on buying much new stuff for the better part of a year. I am going to savour all of this.
