I'm so busy I've been forgetting things - things to do, things to buy, things to take with me. I'm temping at a local hotel (right on the beach) and this morning I forgot my keys to the office AND my wallet. Gordon was kind enough to bring them to me late this morning, otherwise I would have had to wait for someone else to come into the department every time.
I'm still recovering from my cold - still coughing and blowing my nose quite a bit, mostly in the mornings. I feel fine, fortunately. I want to be done with the rest of it before we head off to see my family next week.
BTD-wise, I'm getting by on slightly less than my usual level of compliance. In other words, I'm still being compliant whenever possible, but it IS the holidays, and Gordon's mom's homemade apple pie was calling to me, so I ate it. Most of the time I would turn it down or have a small bite or two. Not this time. I ate the whole piece. And it was GOOD.
We've had various holiday parties to attend, and this weekend will be equally booked. Along with the holiday activities, we need to do laundry, pack, prepare the house for our departure, etc. It seemed a lot easier to manage when I only had to deal with ME, but I wouldn't trade back, either!
We're finishing up with Hannukah, and have lit the menorah every night, and I'm learning the prayer that goes along with the menorah lighting. Maybe by next year I'll have it memorized. Still have a few Christmas gifts to buy and wrap, a birthday present for my grandmother (92 next week!) and a birthday present for my uncle whose birthday is Christmas Day. I'm thinking flowers for Gramma and a bottle of wine for my uncle. Haven't decided.....
I'll try to blog again before we leave for Texas, but if I don't get a chance to it will be after Christmas Day.
