i don't know what the hell my deal is this year, but i could not WAIT for christmas to pass. the ladybug got LOTS of goodies, so i know she was happy and that's all that mattered in my eyes this go round. i got an unexpected ipod shuffle from a dear friend so i am going to try and figure out how to use this thing and move into the digital world. (this coming from a girl who has avoided mp3 gadgets and stuck with my cd collection) deep breath.
the madre got me what i asked for - a radar detector...yes, i'm a little lead footed.
today is nasty outside. 40ish degrees and raining. lovely. bella has a cold - i need to take her to the vet - she might also be blind in her left eye. i got mad yesterday trying to do the crescent roll job that my sister does every year, but i got stuck with it since she bailed on us this christmas. burned the f out of my middle finger on the oven putting marshmellows atop the sweet potatoes. ate way too damn much because i decided to not eat anything before the big dinner. tryptophan set in and i was zonked. could not wake up this morning and now i am at work AGAIN bored out of my gourd. i need a nap. damn i'm cranky.
one good thing in the last couple of days is i finally started again and finished the kite runner. it took me almost a month to get past page 16 of the book. i kept starting it and putting it down, then had to start over again because i forgot what the hell had happened. finished it up last night - started christmas eve. i wanted to get it read before i go check out the movie. if you read any book in the near future, i HIGHLY recommend this one. it was utterly unbelievable. so well written.
