Cabin Fever

Going on day five of crazy freezing temperatures here in Ross River, but this bout of cabin fever isn't chasing away our sanity just yet. We are fevered with Christmas excitement and high off sugary treats, but the countdown to Dec. 25 keeps us cheery. We have been watching Christmas classics together, rewinding our favourite parts (like in Christmas Vacation when they're tobogganing and the wayward uncle says, "every time she revs up the microwave, I'd piss my pants and forget who I was for half an hour"), and rolling on the floor with Abby.
To keep busy, I've been flipping through pages of my cookbooks, and trying new recipes. We've been calling family and friends back home, reading books by Christmas-tree light and starting our pre-New Years fitness resolutions. Better to begin the vengeful attacks on Christmas baking while we consume it, we figure.
No, it hasn't mattered a bit that we're stuck inside. We'll leave the truck frozen in the driveway, give her a chance to warm up a bit before we rev her up. We'll forgo our walks because stepping outside is so cold it literally takes your breath away. We aren't yet bored because the list of Christmas prep and festive celebrating is never complete.
I hope you all are having wonderful pre-Christmas prep too, and that the shopping is done so you can relax and spend time with family and friends. Just don't forget to put a phone call in to us...we're guaranteed to be home!
