Whole lotta nothin.

Mom helps me out while I'm in school and unemployed. That's more gift than I could ever ask for.

Thanks mom!

Got a check for $275 from my parents(which was even more than they usually give), a UConn afghan, and a christmas ornament. My brother got me an iPod nano for my birthday/Christmas(my birthday was the 16th so he gave it to me then). Also got $100 from my parents for the b-day and $25 GC to Barnes and Noble from my other brother.

My mom got me a Roomba. My sister bought me a Bissel Spot Bot. Is that a hint my floors are dirty?

I made out like a bandit.

We got this from my folks in Michigan last week:


The rest of the stuff is from "Santa":

A portable table saw.



A stand for my miter saw.



A cool diamond plate shop light.


...and a sign for the garage.



Plus, I got some little toy airplanes, some Homer Simpson jammies, some Grinch jammies, some South Park jammies, a "Vote for Pedro" t-shirt and hat, a "utility belt" for my golf bag, a comfy new robe, a Sports Illustreated calendar, a classic car calendar, a self powered flashlight, and a zip up sweater.
