I have driven hundreds of kilometres.
I have spent hours in a small room with people I don't like.
I have opened presents.
I have spent hours in rooms with people I do like, very much.
I have talked too much small talk.
I have watched more movies this week than in the past three seasons combined.
I have held children upside down.
I have finished the newest Inspector Banks novel.
I have driven through the very full parking lot of a suburban mall on boxing day.
I have driven through Sleepy Hollow fog to visit my Gran.
I have bought new sheets.
I have knit until my left hand cramped.
I have eaten turkey, and my weight in fruit.
It has been, in a word, the holidays.
I'm just waiting now for my sister to finish in the bathroom, then I will perform my evening ablutions, start in on the last Inspector Rebus novel, and wait for morning and the long drive home.
