I know I don’t usually update the blog on Monday. Well, I haven’t lately, but that’s because of a certain psycho class schedule that I am not going to complain about even though my “busy semester” which I thought was going to taper off in December is now full-on until February. . . .
Somehow I made it through November, though. (It took all day, all evening, and well into the wee hours of the morning . . . but I made it.)
Now I just have to make it through December. Then January.
Still, in light of the holiday, I didn’t update on Friday . . . so here I am.
We had a fabulous Thanksgiving. The guy I’m sorta married to but not allowed to talk about online and I cooked lunch together. He made a delicious turkey, and I made what officially is the best sweet potato casserole in the whole wide world. (I never cook, so please, let me have a moment to gloat.)
Baby girl would not eat a blasted thing. She is so picky. . . .
I am *not* a Black Friday shopper, so while some of you were in line at 4am for door busters, I was tucked safely in my feather bed. And then I slept in. Honestly, it’s not worth the money I’d save for the headache I’d bring home.
I took most of the day off on Friday to decorate for Christmas. We put up our “beautiful tree” (real: silver and shades of blue) downstairs, and the “family tree” (fake: full of personal ornaments) upstairs. They are the most beautiful trees in the whole wide world.
Here’s your Fact on Monday: “Christmas Tree Smell” (Frasier Fir) is my favorite smell in the whole wide world.
(What is with these “whole wide world’s”? I’m full of hyperbole today. Clearly.)
I also went all Martha Stewart (sans ankle bracelet) on everyone and made two wreaths.
I am a master hot glue gunner. And yes, that is my bow. I’m a frakkin amazing bow maker. (Best in the whole wide world!!)
The sad thing, though, is that I had to work Saturday and Sunday to make up for the hours off on Thursday and Friday, but it all worked out. This week, I think, will be manageable. I might be able climb into bed BEFORE 2am.
I MIGHT even be able to blog twice.
Have a great week!
