Xmas recap

Christmas began, as per usual, at Nana and Grampy’s on Christmas Eve.

Santa gave me some special shoes to help me walk on the ice.

The Schofields

Later that night, we drove on up to my parents’ house in P-town, and on Christmas Day we celebrated with my family.

Logan and Grandma Nan playing

Train boys
Logan loved his train set, but I think his Da-da and his Unkie Rob loved it even more!

Unfortunately, many of us were hit by some kind of Post-Christmas Vortex immediately thereafter. We’re still not sure exactly what it was or how we got it, but there was a lot of puking going on. Luckily, Rob has remained in good health so that he can sort of look after me (“More Ginger-Ale, please!”). We are back at home now, and for the past couple of days I’ve either been in bed or praying to the porcelain goddess. As I write, I’ve been about 24-hours without puking—even though I don’t feel so great, I really hope I’m on the road to recovery.

Another downside to all this vortex is that I have momentarily stopped being a vegan. This is really frustrating to me, since I worked hard to ensure a Very Merry Vegan Christmas, but after so much vortex, I decided that if something non-vegan sounded good to me, I might as well eat it. I’m hoping that once I get myself back on track, I’ll be able to carry on vegan again. Until then, I guess I’ll just be a vegan, interrupted.

Thanks for reading!
