Productive day is productive.

Well, did dishes, most of them.

Then made the Jan Daring Bakers Challenge.

Yesterday I did 40 minutes on the PS3 Move, and realized just how out of shape I am today as my arms, shoulders and back still protest even after 3 Motrin.

Friday we went to dinner at Carraba's and to a movie after- Girl with a dragon tattoo is quite good, well worth seeing even if you've read the books.

Sat I saw the resident hawk fly off with a rather large rat carcass and found where it had taken down its prey and disemboweled it. That was awesome. Haven't seen the rats since.}:P

Still haven't gotten back to playing Assassin's Creed: Revelations. No particular reason really, just haven't felt like playing.

Something that's been bugging me lately and I really shouldn't let it...

I sent Michael (my birth mom's brother who sent me that letter out of the blue right before Thanksgiving) and his family a Christmas card. In it I said I don't mind emails or letters but that's all I'm ready for right now.

And... nothing. No response back, no reciprocation of a Christmas card, zip, zero, zilch.

Friends I'd expect that of, but blood family? Even blood family I've been out of contact with for 33+ years? Not what I expected, I guess.

But it bugs me and I'm not sure why. I mean, the balls in their court now. I opened up the lines of communication, it's all on them.

Had a message from someone over on Ancestry.com, they'd signed up for the free 14 day trial to research their grandfather and got a notice that we were connected. Well, she couldn't figure out how.

Turns out her grandfather is my granduncle. Heh.

So now I have contact with yet another group of family members as well.
