Today for Christmas I decided to broaden my horizons by going to see my moms side of the family in Ormond beach, FL. My sister and I had decided a couple of days ago to meet at the 7-11 by my house and I would follow her up. Early in the morning I woke up and decided to pre-check my car. Everything went fine except my oil was a little low. After putting oil it was time for a little sleep. At 0900 I woke up and got myself prepped for an exciting Christmas day. At 1050 I left my apartment for the 7-11. Just as I got in, my sister informed me she would be late.

My sister arrived 30 min later and after a 10 min pit stop, we were was underway heading up 95 at a average speed of 75mph. We had lost time and I was eager to make the duration on the road as short as possible. During the drive I thought about what I would say to my fellow family member about this year. Anyways, after 1hr of driving on 95, we reached the exit. Hip hip hooray. Finding the house was a chore itself as map quest is not accurate. Had we had the proper directions, we would have taken less time getting there.

When we got to my cousins house, I conned the area looking for anything to do before the gift exchange. Overall, my cousin, the host had carefully planned this fun filled day went by. Besides eating food, I watched the husband of the wives play hose shoe (forgive me I do not recall the name of this game). After that, my cousin decided to start the gift exchange.

How it works: You draw a number from hat and the person who has lowest number goes first. You can not pick the gift you brought up. You can steal a gift from the person who possesses the gift. This person proceeds to A) pick a new gift or B) steal a gift. When the last present is opened, the game ends.

I winded up with a $50 gift certificate to borders a planner, a new address book, and a lotto ticked. Overall, I loved this type of present as one is not greedy.

After this, we all sat down and ate except for me as I had eaten a crud load of garbage while driving up. It was around 550 when I left and in the end, I happy for this expierence as it was fun and it was unlike any other activity I had participated in.

Sorry for lack of pics, my camera had a dead battery.

Hope you like the report.

Never be afraid to stand up for who you are.

Aren't you driving a Caliber? I know it's a Dodge, but you need to "pre-check" it before you drive it?  confused  There is no need for you to be checking an economy car before you drive it. I can understand before driving long distances, but you weren't exactly driving across the country here...  Wink

So your relatively new car is leaking oil? Burning oil?

You got up early to "pre-check" your newer economy car which is leaking oil, then went back to sleep? Interesting Christmas Day priorities...
