I hope everyone had an awesome December and survived the holiday stress. What gifts did you give and get? I gave my dad a mini drone and my mom a coloring book. I got a Barnes & Noble gift card, a suitcase, a calendar, slippers, a desk lamp, and a space heater. I also ate a lot of really good food.
