December 18, 2004 -- I made it home around 2:00 AM Thursday morning. I'll be off work until after Christmas Day.

My parents are staying with me while they are home for Christmas since they "winterized" their house before they headed south in their motor home so they wouldn't have to keep heating it while they were gone. There's no point in them having to re-winterize it again when they head back to their motor home after Christmas so they are staying here with me.
