Wanted: Christmas Cheer
Song of the Day: How Sweet It Is by James Taylor
Okay. So itâ€™s Monday again. The weekend just flew by. I managed to get almost all of my wrapping done except for Sweetie Boys. Most of his will have to be put together Christmas Eve from Santa. I started filling out Christmas cards and getting them ready for mailing. Iâ€™m still trying to get into the spirit of Christmas, but it seems to be lacking today for whatever reason. Maybe because I didnâ€™t go â€œall outâ€ on decorating the house. Maybe thatâ€™s the downer. I decided not to put up the miles of garland on the stair banisters or pull out all the decorations for every part of the house.
Or maybe I just havenâ€™t found that Christmas spirit at all yet. My kid wonâ€™t sit on Santaâ€™s lap (I think itâ€™s a fear thing). Heâ€™d rather send him an email than sit on his lap and tell him what he wants. I guess itâ€™s for the best. Iâ€™m not sure I want my child sitting on the lap of a potential pedophile anyway.
Anyhoo.. I was just browsing Amazon and noticed Sue Grafton’s â€œS is for Silenceâ€ is out and wondered.. what is she going to do when she gets to Z? Will she start over with AA? :hyper:
Sweetie Boy has an eye appointment this afternoon. I have this funny feeling they may be changing his prescription again. Which means Iâ€™m going to have to fork over another $200 for lenses. Itâ€™s a racket. But at least they arenâ€™t talking surgery anymore, which is great. Iâ€™d rather just fork out the dough for the lenses than to have to see him go through surgery. That would kill me.
Itâ€™s going to be a somewhat busy week at the office. Three deadlines this week â€“ two of them should be rather simple, and then one two days after Christmas. Why entities feel it necessary to have a proposal due two days after Christmas is beyond me.
And, hereâ€™s a shocker. As of this writing, Christmas is LESS than two weeks away. GACK!
On a side note: My contract was delivered on December 10 at 11:56 am!
