Happy Belated Holidays

I never did wish everybody Happy Holidays so I hope you will accept my belated Happy Holidays. I will say, however, that these holidays can be quite tiring. We will be going on our 4th straight day of "family" get togethers.

Day 1 (23rd)... Baby Wonka's 2nd Bday Party
Day 2... Mrs Wonka's Dad's Side Christmas
Day3... Will Wonka's Family Christmas
Day4... Mrs Wonka's Mom's Side Christmas

Now, I realize that I'm not the only one with this full schedule... but wow... what a long weekend. Luckily, I will be able to take a couple of days off before I get back to work. Unfortunately, not the whole week; but a couple of days should help us recover.... As much as you can recover with a 2 year old running around. Of course, baby Wonka didn't really get the gist of Christmas and everything; but it was a true joy to watch her. The highlight of the night was watching her play with the big pile of unwrapped paper. She would just toss the presents aside and play with the paper and ribbons and bows. Everybody got a kick out of it.

OK.. on to poker...

No big surprise that I haven't played a whole lot of poker lately. The bad news is that the "streak" ended at 12 straight days. Not much to say.... Just one of those days... I got way down early and just couldn't make it up.. I ended up the night down about $337. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. The good news is that my new "streak" is at 3. I really am enjoying shorthanded play for many reasons. Maybe first and foremost is that you get to play more hands. This can be a double edged sword as you can easily play too many hands. Second is the players don't seem to be as good... They are definitely a little more impatient. I still have much to learn here.

OK... not much to say here... just wanted to drop in and update everybody on the "streak" as I know everybody was on the edge of their seat.... lol. More to come in the upcoming days.... including the year in review post. We'll see how it goes.

Again, happy belated holidays.
