Catching Up

So I plopped in front of the TV more than usual today. It became really easy: I just sat down, started watching Mad Men, and before I knew it, I was through three more episodes.


I finally finished the second season.


It wasn’t a bad weekend, really. Got a lot more Christmas shopping done than it felt like, or than I was expecting, which is really a good thing. Patrick and I finished up putting the lights on the house, and it really looks good…Some night, I’ll get a picture of that and post it here for you.


Jenni was busy with homework, so mostly we all just tried to stay out of her hair. Coming up on just one more semester to go for her. I’m really excited for her to start the next phase of her life.


I started the newest, latest diet/exercise regimen. Because really, I’m tired of being this size and feeling like I do. It’s time to change that.


But in practically the same breath, I can say that I’m going to start making some Christmas cookies and will start the truffle process tomorrow night…I’ve got to have some reward, right?


Patrick’s started reading Lord of the Flies for English at school, so I decided that I’d pick it up with him. It’s one of my favorite books, and I’m really looking forward to talking with him about it as he reads it.


Tomorrow, I head back to the phones at work. We’ll see how that goes: there are a lot of unanswered questions, but I’ll just do my job and I’ll be fine. But on the upside, after Friday, I’m on vacation until after New Year’s Day, so I’ve got that to look forward to. Hopefully it’ll make it a low-stress week.


So there you go. Caught up on everything me. More tomorrow.


See you tomorrow.
