32 Below

So I made it to the third bar last night before I figured out that I had left my wallet, including my ID, on my kitchen table. The blonde server who was at least a decade younger than me kindly asked me to leave. At least I felt young again for a fleeting second. Because our babysitter is a high school student who had class this morning, I gave it up at that moment and we just called it a night. It was 9:03 p.m. But I had enjoyed a few rounds of yummy cocktails, a great dinner and a once-in-a-lifetime chocolate custard pie already, so I was ok with it.

And now I can tell everyone that I got kicked out of a bar and they'll assume I'm some kind of bad ass. It's always good to be vague.

Shameless Plug

Happy Birthday to ME!

I'm not doing anything even remotely birthday-like today, except being a slacker. But that's kinda an everyday thing.

Canon cleaned out our home office that for more than a year (ever since we got a real, professional studio) was just collecting junk. So now I have an official craft room with two countertops for beading and sewing. I plan to move my wrapping supplies down there next. For my birthday Em got me a TV for down there, and it's like my own little piece of heaven! Now I just have to paint over the hideous blue-green walls.

So, um, yeah, exciting storyl. Tune in next week for more adventures in, ah, my exciting life.

Hello Boys & Girls

November is over? How did that happen so soon?

Well, I stunk up the NaBloPoMo but at least I posted more than in past months, so, um, go me!

It's hot in here. That's what happens when you crank up your space heater and close your office door. What? Did you hear that? I said 'close your office door.' It makes me so happy to be able to say that. Rosy cheeks and sweaty palms a happy employee make. At least in my case.

It's Dec. 8 and I just crossed three more names off my shopping list. I'm practically giddy! The shopping/gifting is going well so far this year. The decorating is done, with help from Em, which means she takes the ornaments off the tree and rearranges them every night. That's ok though. It's actually the dogs who have broken the most ornaments this year. I don't plan on a lot of baking, but I do plan on Christmas cards, and that certainly isn't done.

I'm also trying to get to the gym at least 3 days a week. With all the company and travelling we're doing, that's a steep goal, but I'm set on it. Maybe it's all the 'me time' that's helping me deal so well with the holiday stress this year.

Speaking of working out, I ran the Turkey Day 5K! Woooooot! It was really fun, thanks to my co-runners (shout-outs to the Shes Who Shall Not Be Named!) and the great weather. I definitely plan on doing that again.

So, erm, what's on your wish list?

I'm big into the relaxation this year... I want some massage gift cards and a weighted hula-hoop just like the ones at my gym. My biggest wish is for Canon to turn our old home office into a craft room for me, and you know what? I haven't told him that yet. I think I will right now.
