Was anyone else feeling lazy today? (I didn't even participate in Mailbox Monday this week....sigh..) Heck, I didn't even turn on my computer until now -- you see how lazy I've been. We honestly did nothing but lounge around the house today: watching: Get Shorty (very funny) and Law and Order episodes again and again, took a nap and ate leftovers.
Preparing for Christmas was much easier this year as the few gifts that were purchased were easy, and even the food preparation was simpler, as everyone brought something. We always manage to have too much food. I mean seriously, can (6) people possible eat: an apple pie (gone-my husband ate almost the whole pie), (4lb) cheesecake (1/2 gone), chocolate cream pie (1/2 left), pistachio cake (1/2 left) -- Fortunately, family enjoys dessert leftover as much as the real food.
The best part about Christmas was being together (all of us) - isn't that the perfect gift? Hope your holiday was wonderful as well.
I am so excited because I got out of work on December 23rd and we don't go back until January 3rd. It's all paid as well without having to use vacation time). One of the perks of working in an academic environment. I know the week will fly by, but I do have hopes of finishing: Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, so we can see the movie.. --not loving the book, but it's okay I'm over 1/2 way through. I also want to read Sense of an Ending; Barnes (Kindle Library Loan). Other plans include selecting my top 10 list for 2011, catch up on reviews and just doing whatever or nothing I please (as the hub will be working):
Whatever your plans for the week and New Years - ENJOY!
