It’s a weird Christmas for me. I’m done shopping for my family, but I still have some friends to buy presents for. After getting my outside lights and Christmas trees up before I went home for Thanksgiving, I’ve been dragging my feet about decorating. I finally got a bunch of ornaments on the trees last night. I may do a bit more decorating tonight, but I’ll probably about done with that.
Thursday, I headed down after work to see Glendale Centre Theatre’s annual production of A Christmas Carol. Despite all the years I’ve been going down there, this is the first time I’ve actually seen it. I enjoyed it. The special effects weren’t that great, but the play itself was really well done. I especially enjoyed their carolers, who usually sang a cappella.
And Saturday, I made my monthly trip to
Disneyland. I didn’t get there as early as I had hoped,
but I did get there in time to ride the Christmas version of it’s a small world
twice before the lines got too long. I
waited 10 minutes once and 20 minutes the next time. Mind you, that was back to back. The line was looking to be at least 30
minutes long when I left, so I got there just in the nick of time.
I hit Star Tours twice as well, thanks to fast pass. Did Haunted Mansion Holiday once and then headed over to CA Adventure long enough to wander around a bit and stop by the Ghirardelli store. Man, that place is addictive.
I left last afternoon because I didn’t feel like waiting in any more lines even though I had my book with me and hadn’t really read much. Also, my legs were killing me. I am so frustrated since I don’t know what is wrong and how to make them better. I haven’t been running much, which does seem to help, but I want to run and play ultimate Frisbee. Patience has never been one of my virtues.
Now to get presents wrapped and I’ll be all ready for Christmas!
