[What are you up to?]

Nothing too terribly exciting. My big accomplishment for the weekend was taking the air conditioners out of the windows and re-arranging the stuff in the kitchen so there's space for them. I left them in all last winter, and there was a significant draft, so it was important for this year, with the higher heating costs. Other than that, there was a lot of cleaning and other routine chores that I should have done, but didn't. I'm motivated to clean my apartment right now, but I'm at work. By the time I get home, I'll be tired and have lost motivation. *sigh*

Christmas spirit hit me a couple days ago. This usually happens - I get all excited a week or so before Thanksgiving, and then run out of steam by about the tenth of December. I wish I could blame it on the commercialization, but really it's that when I start thinking about going home for Thanksgiving, I get myself all interested. So, I want to do my shopping and get my cards ready... It's good to get it done early, though, because it's less stress for Christmas itself.

I still need to figure out what I'm doing for Christmas. Because it's on the weekend, I could go to my parents' house. There's not much point to that, though. It's never been a big deal for us, since family Christmas is always down at my grandmother's, around the 27th or 28th. I'm not sure if I'll be able to do that, but maybe I can get off work a couple hours early and go down for dinner - it's not quite 2 hours' drive from here. I should go spend Christmas Day with Grandma, but I don't really want to, especially if I'm going to be there a few days later. What I want to do is what I did last year: go out Christmas Eve with my co-worker and her family, sleep in Christmas morning, and have an open house in the afternoon for anyone who's in the area. I really enjoyed that, and it's what I'm inclined to do again unless the guilt wins out.

    It is so much more fun to be obsessing over how best to clean mouse pee off My Little Ponies instead of what the surgeon will say tomorrow.

    I stop by to skim briefly and catch up. An hour later, I realize that I can't even say "Hey, good job with what you're doing, I support…

    So, that last post was supposed to be under a filter, and I ended up submitting it too late at night and missed that. Apologies to those whose real…
