More Productive Weekend

I actually had a more productive weekend this last weekend.  I got more decorating done including just a tad of the ornament organizing I need to do.  Mind you, I said a tad.  I still have so much I should be doing.  I only have one present left to buy.  About the only thing I haven’t done yet is wrap presents.  I’ve got a lot of wrapping to do, so I need to start on that soon.  Probably tomorrow night during the Survivor finale.  Got to do something to keep my entertained during those three hours.

Heck, I even cut my hair on Saturday and rewatched Return of the Jedi to be ready for Thursday night.  Yes, that’s right, I’m going to see the new Star Wars moving on Thursday night.  Getting very excited for it, too!

Other news?  Not much.  Crazy busy at work.  About to start reading books for 2016 (have three book reviews due that first week).  And other than that, not much new to report.

The Weekend was Quite. Too Quiet

I had big plans for the weekend.  I was going to finish decorating and get my Christmas shopping done.  Meanwhile, I was also going to get a couple of movie watched and make great progress in my book.

Yeah, right.

Instead, I spent most of my Saturday wasting time on my computer.  Only in the late afternoon did I start to get anything done.  I did the majority of my Christmas shopping, and I do feel wonderful about that.  I still have a few things to pick up later, but I know what I’m getting, so it isn’t that big a deal.

I also got one of the movies watched, but only one.

No decorating, and just a little bit of reading on Sunday.

Of course, my usual Sunday activities happened of church, ultimate and Once Upon a Time with friends.  Can’t give that up.

It’s set me behind on where I want to be with my decorating, so I need to decide just how much more of that I am going to do.  But it is such a relief to have so much of my Christmas shopping done.

Then will come the fun or wrapping presents.

Wonderful Trip Home for Thanksgiving

I had a wonderful time at home for Thanksgiving.

The first couple of nights, I spent with my brother and his family, which meant that I got to spend all day with my niece and nephew.  They are so cute!! (I figured I’d get that out of the way early.  You knew it was coming).  That was where everyone gathered for Thanksgiving itself, and we had a great day with family and a family friend.  I got to talk, and we played some games as well, including one I’d brought up for us to play.

I also got to visit with a friend of mine from childhood.  We’d connected on Facebook but hadn’t seen each other face to face in years.  I got to meet his wife and just generally catch up.

Other than that, it was just spending time with family, which was wonderful.  We watched Muppet Christmas Carol one night, and we played more games.

I was sad to leave Monday, but I did get to see my friend Donald and his parents on my drive home, which was nice as well.
